Although the cold and strong W wind sheltered the high numbers, although all caught fish none bothered the scales-man with the top five all facing the wind.
Alan Marshall’s last fish, hooked right on the finishing whistle and landed a few minutes afterwards sealed him the win. His six carp from peg 9, totalling 33-08, all came to ground-bait method feeder and bunches of maggots after he changed tactics after 2 hours.
On peg 2 John Adamson’s 4 carp, all falling to pellet method feeder and weighing 31-02 took second spot, the consistent Terry Sanderson (peg 5) taking third place with 3 carp and a barbel on bomb and pellet for 24-10.

Crystal clear water and a strong cold wind failed to deter fish feeding and, in spite of 4 anglers not bothering to weigh the match still averaged over 25 pounds per person.
Stu Johnstone improved his good Thursday form (three seconds and a third) by going one better to win from Snake peg 12. Fishing pole and corn, altering his line slightly to the left produced a string of good carp resulting in 68-10 and a clear win.
On the next peg, 10, Dave Kent fished similarly but his slightly smaller stamp of fish to total 57-14 meant he had to console himself with second place.
Reptile peg 13 produced third place for Gaz Wood, who had mainly “stockies” in his 46-08 total, all falling to pellet fished at 13m.
NB. ‘NISA FEEDERS’ Opens are at Makins every Thursday on Phases 2 or 3. (£15 “all in” at the draw). Draw 9.00 am in Café, Phase 1 Car Park.
