PARTRIDGE LAKES (SUN)
Following the Fish O’Mania qualifier the day before, 73 anglers turned out to fish this open. Multiple Matchman of the Year Andy Bennett left them fishing for second as he took 108-10-0 for victory from peg 40 on Canal 2, catching F1s, ide and a few carp on pellet across at 12m and caster off bottom at 6m. Craig Ebbrell, at peg 29 on the same lake, fished maggot to the island at 12m for 105-10-0 of mainly F1s. A chopped worm and caster approach won the day for Keith Pentland, who drew peg 16 on the Skylark Lake and went out to 14.5m to pick off carp to 9lb plus skimmers and ide for 115-9-0. That put him almost 20lb clear of Keith West on peg 27 of the same lake, pellet shallow at 16m giving him 96-2-0 of carp to double figures.
