There were a few outstanding results in an otherwise disappointing week for weights at Lake View.
Andy Searle (60lb) and Baz Bright (80lb) were the clear winners of the Autumn/Winter series qualifiers on Wednesday and Saturday, while Daz Sly, who finished runner-up on Saturday, was the only other competitor to break 50lb.
A 9lb haul was enough for Rich Mazur to claim the qualifying spot on Wednesday, with the five anglers to finish above him already through to the March final.
And fourth place was good enough for Joey Griffin who took the biggest weight on the river lake on Saturday with 33lb.
