  • James Maude AC Hallcroft Bridge Inner & Outer.


    Saturday 22 September 2018.

    Weather: overcast day temps quite cold breeze with the odd shower:

    The autumnal equinox is upon us: On Saturday, September 22, both the Northern and Southern hemispheres will experience an equal amount of daylight. For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, it marks the beginning of fall, with daylight hours continuing to shorten until the winter solstice in December. For those south of the equator, it’s the beginning of spring.

    Technically speaking, the equinox occurs when the sun is directly in line with the equator. This will happen at 9:54 pm Eastern time on Saturday.

    Below is a short scientific guide to the most equal night of the season.

    1) Why do we have equinoxes?
    The fall and spring equinoxes, the seasons, and the changing length of daylight hours throughout the year are all due to one fact: Earth spins on a tilted axis.

    The tilt — possibly caused by a massive object hitting Earth billions of years ago — means that for half the year, the North Pole is pointed toward the sun (as in the picture below). For the other half of the year, the South Pole gets more light. It’s why we have seasons.

    So as the Autumn closes in on us and we say farewell to a great summer, we know the fish we want in our nets go into a transition and fish feeding up for the winter increasing their body fats, also as the weather changes with cold rain entering our waters all having an effect on how we catch. This was not a problem for Halcroft resident Dave Sewell, a man who knows every contour of the Bridge pool.

    And so once again the James Maude AC lads travel through the Historical town of Retford and if you look on trip advisor you will see that Dave Sewell really gives this a five star rating as he clocks up back to back wins following his victory at Hayton Lakes last week, Dave was in control of all things Halcroft , Dave pegged on the outer on peg 17 weighed 86lb-5oz. Well done Dave. Second place was a Nick Heath who did peg 1 on the island proud with 75lb-6oz. Well done Nick. Hon Sec Skelly also pegged on Island peg 8 with 68lb-7oz. Well done Skelly. Glen Haynsz our stalwart guest pegged on 53 took fourth with 57lb-8oz from peg 53. Well done Glen.
    The results are as follows:
