Lake View Fishery: Searle and Bower through to March final
Mark Bower landed the biggest match weight of the week at Lake View Fishery to book his place in the Middy Adrenaline Baits Autumn/Winter final next March.
Bower fell just five pounds short of the 100lb mark from peg five on canal to top last Wednesday’s qualifier, with Brian Greenbury almost 9lb back in second place.
All of the top seven weights came fem the canal lake which also produced the best weights at Saturday’s qualifier.
Andy Searle won this time round with just shy of 85lb from peg 11, comfortably clear of rummer-up Steven Pretty as the canal lake served up the best nine weights.
Steve Haywood grabbed his customary win at a depleted Sunday Open.
He topped a seven-man field with 49lb 5oz from peg four on lagoon.
