60 peg sell-out for this latest qualifier, conditions for the match were difficult with highs of just 4C, no breeze and very low water temperatures.
Needless to say bites were difficult to come by. Most of the field found the first two hours the most productive with odd carp to double figures and a few quality bream to both the method and open end feeder.
Winner today was Martin Eddis (Larford) who drew peg 80 on the Specimen Lake.
Martin fished the Method at distance with small waffter hook baits, landing carp to 15lbs plus a few skimmers to weigh on 76-09-00 and clinching his place in the March Grand Final.
Second on the day was Jordan Holloway (Catch More Media) who drew peg 44 on the Match Lake.
Jordan fished a small method feeder with waffter and pellet hook bait, catching carp and F1’s to weigh in 66-13-00 also securing his place in the Grand Final.
Third place Paul Cook drew peg11 on the Specimen Lake landing 55-14-00.
The Frenzee backed angler fished the method feeder at 50m landing carp and bream on waffter hook baits.
Fourth on the day was Frankie Gianocelli (Guru) who drew peg 20 on the Specimen Lake.
Frankie fished a hybrid feeder at 50m with waffters landing carp and bream. He also found a mirror carp at just over 20lbs to boost his weight and secure a Grand Final placing.
Fifth overall was Welsh rod, Rob Wiltshire (Cumbran Nobblers) who drew peg 48 on the Match Lake.
Fishing a small method with waffters, corn and pellet hook bait, the welsh wizard landed F1’s, skimmers and carp to weigh in 51-12-00.
Sixth to the frame was Joe Holloway (Waltons) from peg 18 on the Match Lake.
Joe weighed in 43-08-00 of carp and F1’s to method and waffters.
