With the big Middy MX Luggage Spring/Summer Series final set for Lake View Fishery this weekend, two more late qualifying places were decided last week.
Steven Pretty finished eighth at the 46th qualifier last Wednesday to reach the grand final to be held over Saturday and Sunday.
The Grantham angler landed just shy of 51lb from canal peg five, some way down on match winner Brian Greenbury who topped the scales with 82lb from peg 25.
The penultimate qualifying spot went to Mike Tyrer whose 15th place, with 43lb 14oz proved enough to put him through.
Daz Sly took the match win with 103lb from peg 20 on river, while runner-up Ken Daws took the top weight on canal, with 96lb also from peg 20.
