Lakes – High, Front Deans, Back Deans & Hay.
Due to a clash of dates with Fish O Maina, Preston Feeder, Barston plus other local matches, the attendance at Woodlands was very disappointing with only 54 in attendance.
With conditions improving and highs of around 18C, light breeze and mainly sunshine, things were looking good for some big weights and Woodlands view delivered just that.
Winner today with a massive 209-4-0 was Welsh International Lee Edwards (Dorking Daiwa).
Lee drew peg 34 on Back Deans and fished casters shallow long landing carp and F1’s.
Lee qualifies for his first Golden Reel Final and is certainly a quality finalist.
Second on the day was Matt Higgins (Matrix) from peg 33 on Front Deans.
Matt also fished casters shallow and long recording 183-8-0 at the scales and booking a Semi Final placing.
Third in the frame was Dale Lynch from peg 1 on Front Deans. Again the winning bait was caster shallow producing 173-10-0. Dale also qualifies for the Semi Final.
Fourth placed Lee Pesticcio (Mossella) drew peg 63 on Back Deans and fished casters shallow to weigh in 150-14-0.
Fifth overall was Warren Jennings (Bag’em) from peg 29 on the High Pool.
Warren fished caster long and shallow.
In all 12 weights over 100lbs so a big thank you to Mike & Denise for a brilliant qualifier.
