All the Phase 1 lakes were frozen over at Makins except Lake 1, and after the worst Wednesday open in three years many wished that had been unfishable as well, as only three anglers caught a fish each.

Top weight fell to John (Nobby) Marshall (Nuneaton Nomads) with 1 lb 14 oz, a single crucian carp which took meat offered on a method feeder from peg 8.

Both second and third each caught a perch and claimed to have missed a bite.  Mark Perkins (Dynamite Matchman Supplies) had a 1 lb fish from peg 4 on caster, beating Coventry’s Eddie Keene’s 2 oz fish which took a pinkie.

NB. Makins’ ‘Kobra Affordable’ Wednesday Open Matches are held on Lake 2 &/or 4 (Phase 1) every week.  To enter, either telephone 07749 284 823, or be in Phase 1 Car Park by 8.45 a.m. (£15 all in at the draw).
