Report: The cold NE wind and high pressure had moved the bulk of the fish into the high numbers on the A bank, although shoals could be seen over the whole lake at times during the day. 

Phil Godwin on peg A13, fishing the lake for the first time, enjoyed an excellent day.  He caught decent carp steadily throughout on pellet wager fished four feet deep and put 113-08 on the scales for a clear win.

On the opposite bank on peg B20, John Adamson caught small carp and bream for the first 90 minutes on method feeder, then had a long blank spell before slightly bigger fish (he had nothing over about five pounds) returned in the last hour to lift his total to 81-02 for second place.

Alan Marshall on peg B1 took third place with 70-14, which included over twenty pounds of skimmer bream.  He had two big carp on method feeder, with the remainder of his catch coming to pole and pellet.

Gordon Hitchin just missed out on the prizes with a fourth placed 70-02 from peg B14, again all of his fish falling to pole and pellet, including some big carp taken in the latter stages from the margins.

Mick Chapman’s fifth placed 65-08 included fish taken on method feeder, pellet waggler and pole, while Pete Wood’s 54-14 from A11 were all caught on the pellet waggler.
