As at the tail end of winter in previous years the small fish in Lake Two were shoaled tightly together at the car park end. The outcome of the match was very much more due to the draw for swims than what the anglers did!
At peg 1 Steve Mayes took full advantage of the fancied spot taking a winning weight of 24lbs 14ozs. Steve chose to fish a waggler and maggot rig over ground bait and micro pellets to take a super bag dominated by skimmer bream.
Ken Kendall's second placed return of 12lbs 12ozs was mostly small rudd with a few roach and small skimmers. Ken fished the pole towards the island at peg 3 with a single red maggot on the hook while feeding casters and groundbait through a toss pot.
On the opposite side of the bay to the winner Kevin Farrow claimed third place with an 8lbs 8ozs net of small rudd and roach.
