Simon Skelton was the first to qualify for Lakeview Fishery’s £4,000 final, sponsored by Middy, with a fantastic weight of 129lb 1oz.
Fishing peg two on the Serpent, Simon caught mainly F1s shallow on maggot.
Last Wednesday’s match brought three more weights over the ton mark. Steve Haywood narrowly missed out on winning after catching another amazing weight of 117lb 8oz off peg 17. Steve also caught mainly F1s and carp.
Andy Searle came third with 111lb 8oz, off peg 19, on pellet, catching carp, F1s and skimmers, while forth-placed Keith Daws had a excellent day, catching a few large carp to take his haul to 104lb 9oz.
