Again a sell out 60 peg qualifier. Conditions were mild with no breeze.
That being said, water tempratures were still very low so bites were difficult.
Winner on the day overall was Matt Pillay (MAP) who drew peg 13 on the Arena Lake.
Matt fished the hybrid feeder with waffters weighing in 81-04-00 of carp.
2nd on the day was Phil Briscoe (Colmic / Bag’em Larford) who drew peg 18 on the Arena Lake.
Phil caught on a mini cage feeder with popped up bread to weigh 75-00-00 of carp.
The bad news for Phil was that he went over his net limit and should have weighed 85 lbs which cost him a place in the final.
3rd on the day was Grant Albutt (Drennan / Dynamite) who drew peg 6 on the Specimen Lake.
Grant fished a cage feeder with dead reds weighing an all bream catch of 49-14-00.
4th placed Will Freeman (Barnsley Blacks) drew peg 35 on the Match Lake and fished a small cage feeder with dead reds weighing 38-08-00 of carp and skimmers.
5th on the day was Dave Grey (Allans Tackle) who drew peg 56 on the Match Lake.
Dave fished the method with waffers to weigh 33-14-00
6th overall was Fabian Arpad (Polegate AC) who drew peg 78 on the Specimen Lake weighing 32-09-00 of bream.
Fabian fished a cage feeder short with dead reds.
