BLUNDELLS FISH­ERY All lakes rover (48 pegs) Mark Lu­cas made it look easy as he won with 142-0-0. Hav­ing cho­sen peg 47 on Trio Pool, the Mosella-backed an­gler used caster shal­low just 6m out for F1s, carp and a few sil­vers.

MEADOW VIEW FISH­ERIES Lark Pool (36 pegs) The high turn-out meant the lake didn’t fish to its full po­ten­tial, with Shaun Wood­ward need­ing just 360-0 to win. A pa­tient ap­proach in the mar­gins from peg 10 paid off for the Traf­ford Tackle & Bait man, with carp to 7lb and the oc­ca­sional skim­mer.
