The match record at Barston Lakes has been broken for the third time in 2014, Steve Porter weighing in a massive 250lb.
A rainy bank holiday Monday switched the fish onto the feed after a period of humid weather, and the Monday open match actually threw up two 200lb plus weights.

Suzi Smith thought she had set a new mark after weighing in 217lb from peg 47 to beat Mick Bull’s 199lb best at the Solihull venue.

That was until the scales got to peg 15, where Steve had his 250lb bag waiting.

Monday opens will continue into the winter, with the draw time now at 1pm.
