With a thin layer of ice covering the surface of much of the canal, anglers were expecting conditions to be tough, on what turned out to be a bright,clear day.
The match was split between the Odder and Woodcock lengths, and
coming out on top with a weight of 6-6-0 from peg 39 at Odder was Dynamite
Trentmen rod Rob Perkins. Rob backed up some chunky perch on lobworm, with a net
of quality roach taken on bloodworm over groundbait at six metres.
Second placed John Small also found some quality roach to finish with 6-2-0.
John caught most of his fish on the long pole, fishing single bloodworm over a bed
of groundbait. Third placed Tom Scholey caught small fish on joker, before latching in
to some better quality roach on bread punch late on in the match.
