Carp on Lake Two at Dynamite Makins were caught all round the lake during the Wednesday KOBRA Open, and more than half the field had a chance of framing but for minor mistakes during the match.
Top weight from peg B2 fell to Mick Timson (Elton Tackle). Mick had a bite-less first 2 hours before his method feeder tactics began to show fruit with a 12 lb carp, and then he caught steadily to the end of the match to total 148 lb 8 oz for a clear win.
On peg A8, Long Eaton angler John Adamson (Kobra Feeders) also had a long wait for his first fish, but had a strong second half of the match (also on method feeder) to land 13 carp to 11-08 for 101 lb 4 oz and second place.
18 year old rising star Sam Brown (Team Makins) on peg B20 took third place with 98 lb 14 oz alternating method feeder for carp and pole for bream.
