A damp start today, around 15 degrees with heavy rain, but dry for the last 2 hours of the match.

A healthy average of 40lbs + per Angler throughout the lake.
Section 2 was a real close one with Matt Baxter winning with 74lbs 14oz, which included over 50lbs of skimmers caught on the pole/paste.
Second in section was Ian on end peg 27 with a great mix of carp, barbel and silvers for 68lbs.
The backup weights of 50lb 8oz, 48lb 4oz and 41lb 8oz were impressive too..!
Section 1 at the top end of the lake was another close one too.
