Pre Match Report

Post Match Report

This lake just like the rest of the complex continues to go from strength to strength. It is a great water to hold competitions on as it’s as fair as possible and can be won from anywhere. Only three out of the 12 competing pairs didn’t register fish in this one.

As usual it was a fairly tight affair with anglers catching from all over the lake. On the last morning it was a case of any three pairs from seven that could of qualified, that’s how close a contest it was.

In the end Jason Adams and Luke Church had two fish in the last few hours to cement their victory. They were made to work very hard catching a smaller stamp of fish netting eleven for a total weight of 90lb 5oz. Scott Head and Jerome Brown came next with only four fish for 75lb 14oz, only a fish behind our winners. Third was taken by Terry Overend and Kevin Greenwood, who had 6 fish but ended about 3lb behind second place. Fourth was Mike White and Kel Bowers with five fish for 66lb 14oz. Fifth place was Lee Bateman and Rob Lawton who also broke the 60lb barrier and only missed out on a podium spot by one fish. Following them were another two pegs with weights of 40lb+.

What were the chances of the exact same three pairs who qualified here last year did it again this year? That’s how it ended up, last years’s winners Terry and Kevin finished in third this time. This year’s winners Jason and Luke have gone one place better as have second placed Scott and Jerome who all make it to Barston for the August bank holiday final.

This lake has a great winter pedigree and there are not that many places for a bend in the rod at that time of the year in Lincolnshire. It has been throwing up 30lb+ fish as well which is special considering how new the lake actually is. All this is a credit to owner Chris Marler and his quality fish management skills. I can’t wait to see what happens next year.
