Neil Barlow and Bob Murray made it through to the two-day Middy Adrenaline Summer Series Final in September after coming through qualifying at Lake View last week.
Third place was enough for Barlow to progress after he was edged out on a day of huge weights last Wednesday.
The top five all landed more than 130lb of catches with Barlow’s 137lb bettered only by Doug Jackson and winner Steve Haywood who finished just three ounces short of 150lb.
Bob Murray finished second in Saturday’s qualifier behind the in-form Ken Daws who topped the scales at 115lb, 10 pounds ahead of his nearest rival.
Weights were down on river lake for Sunday Open as Chris Hale won through with 58lb.
