Qualifier number 9 took place on Saturday at a very cold Colmic / Bag’em Larford Lakes.

Dean fished the hybred feeder with corn to land 46-11-00 of carp.
3rd placed John Jones (Fiveways) drew peg 82 on the Specimen Lake and fished the method at 40m with waffers landing 3 or 4 early carp that gave him 41-13-00
4th on the day was Pemb Wrighting (Guru) who drew peg 8 on the Arena Lake.
Pemb fished the hybred feeder with corn landing 33-11-00 of carp.
