Another very cold start to the match but it didn’t seem to bother the carp Andy drew the bore hole peg 31 fishing with the pole and pellet up in the water and on the deck he landed 34 carp – 10lb for a grand total of 115lb 6oz.
In second place Nigel was coursing the loss of two double figure carp late in the match that he says would have won him the match, fishing the pole out with pellet and down the margin with corn he managed to land carp – 12lb in his net of 94lb 2oz.
