A fantastic turnout of 31 anglers braved temperatures of -5 on Sunday to fish the latest Lakeview Open.
Steve Haywood made the most of his ice-free peg one on ocean pool, thanks to the aerator running through the night, to record a weight of 74lb 1oz. He caught mainly F1s and mirrors with a few silvers, on bread, pellet and maggot.
Reef produced the next top five weights which were very close and headed by Peter Cooke with 40lb 12oz from peg 24, catching on bread and maggot.
