Bronson Arme continued his excellent form at Lake View with two more wins last week, and a place at the Middy Xtreme/Dynamite Baits Summer Series grand final.

He booked his spot in September’s two-day final after topping the scales at last Wednesday’s qualifier with a haul of almost 1212lb, well clear of runner-up Andy Searle.

Having won the previous week’s Sunday Open with a personal best of 160lb, Arme went close to that total in winning the match for the second weekend running.

His final weight of 145lb was almost 60lb clear of nearest challenger Neil Barlow.

Steve Porter was the other angler to make it through to the summer series final after finishing third at Saturday’s qualifier with 91lb.

Ken Daws chalked up another win to take the Saturday spoils with 124lb 10oz, but runner-up Steve Haywood claimed a £70 bonus after taking top weight on the lagoon pool from golden peg seven.
