Lakeview angling: Mick earns Open win with last-gasp catch

Have your say

A very close finish to Sunday’s open at Lakeview saw Mick Beckhurst take a last gasp win.

Mick landed his last fish of the day on the final whistle for a weight of 111lb 9oz off canal peg 15, just beating Ken Daws, who was fishing off the next peg 14, with 106lb 4oz.

Mick fished down the track using pellet and maggot to catch carp of up to 6lb and a good mix of other F1s and mirrors.

Ken caught down the track and across, catching F1s, mirrors and carp, again on pellet and maggot.

The back bank on canal fished very closely with Scott Robinson, on peg 23, catching 87lb 8oz of F1s and carp on maggot.

Brian Orme was top on serpent pool with 68lb 8oz, fishing down the track on peg 21 to catch a good weight of F1s and carp on maggot and pellet.
