Cary & Lodge Lakes (27 pegs)
The giant weights that the complex is renowned for didn’t materialise, but that actually made for a great match and Dave Cockayne just about edged it with 135-7-0. Pellet on the pole did the damage and helped him put plenty of carp to double figures into the nets. Martin Preston went into the bridesmaid position, with 129-10-0 of big mirrors and commons.
Result: 1 D Cockayne, Bait Tech Viaduct, 135-7-0; 2 M Preston, Bait Tech Viaduct, 129-10-0; 3 N Easton, Langport, 114-14-0.
