The prize money flowed once against lake View Fishery as Andy Searle took home a golden peg bonus last Wednesday.

Searle won the first of the two weekly Middy MX Luggage Spring/Summer Series qualifiers, landing 85lb from golden peg 15 on lagoon.

Third-placed Dan Hull also hit the £90 golden peg jackpot with the top weight on marina of 77lb, from 25, as well as the qualifying place for the bank holiday weekend final.

Saturday’s stormy winds made sport tougher for the second qualifier, but winner Tony Blackwell still managed a three-figure weight, taking 104lb from lagoon peg seven.

Fourth-placed Sean Huggins took top weight on river with 70lb from peg 15.

Jack Danby took the biggest match weight of the week to win the Sunday Open, landing 158lb from peg seven on canal, while fourth-placed Dave White topped the lagoon weights with 85lb from peg 25.
