The bitterly cold weather continued, with yet another overnight frost and, although the wind was from the western quarter, it was cold and brought showers of rain. In general, the carp failed to co-operate, and although the top 4 all had carp, most of the other weights consisted of “silvers” (bream, roach and perch).
Shaun Weed again drew peg 1, and again won the match, although he struggled to catch until he found a few carp in front of him, and he caught on bomb and pellet to put 49-08 on the scales.
Tim Bull (peg 23) included a big grass carp in his second placed 40-12 catch which consisted of 4 fish, 2 falling to pellet waggler and two on bomb and pellet, just enough to push Mick Chapman (peg 20) into third place. Mick had five carp on bomb and pellet for 40-08.
Although Stuart Gould in fourth place with 31-15 from peg 27 had three carp, half of his weight was made up of perch, while fifth placed John Adamson (peg 10) had one seven pound carp with the bulk of his 30-14 consisting of bream taken on pole in the last 90 minutes.
