Lakeview Fishery angling: Middy ace lands golden peg win

Have your say

A top class performance from Middy team ace Steve Haywood earned him a handsome golden peg win at Lakeview Fishery on Sunday.

Up against a 29-strong entry, gusting winds and driving rain, Steve still took 102lb 9oz off golden peg six on the canal pool, bagging him an extra £210 in winnings. He fished down the track, catching mainly F1s and mirrors while using pellet as his main bait.

All of the top five weights came from the canal where Andy Searle finished second with 88lb 10lb, catching a good mix of F1s, carp and skimmers on pellet from peg three.

Ken Daws was third off peg eight with 83lb 14oz, and Jason Sahall took top weight off the back bank to come fourth with 75lb 15oz.

Shaun Huggins took the top weight off the Serpent pool with 66lb 12oz, catching on pellet down the track.
