With the postponed Winter Series final still to take place later this month, Lake View Fishery began the Middy Adrenaline Baits Spring/Summer Series last Wednesday.
Bob Dyer became the first person to go through to September’s final as he topped the qualifier with 45lb 12oz from peg three on marina.
The total pipped runner-up Sean Huggins by less than two pounds.
And Keith Clifton took the best haul of this week’s qualifiers to finish clear winner of match two on Saturday.
He weighed in with 71lb 10oz from peg one, on river, to see off the challenge of Robo Robinson.
The runner-up did have the consolation of a golden peg win for taking the top weight from the stream lake, with 51lb, to earn an £80 bonus.
Louis Richardson brought up the century to win the latest Lake View Sunday Open.
He caught 108lb 13oz from peg 15 on canal to finish almost 40lb clear of runner-up Bob Greenbury.
Bob himself caught a fine 70lb total weight.
