Hargreaves in Wigan record
MOST winter matches on the Leeds-Liverpool Canal around Wigan are low weight affairs, but not so the recent midweek Wigan DAA open at Adlington Marina where the bream decided to have a go. Mick Hargreaves set a fourhour match record for the association’s waters.
Drawing on Marina Bay, Sensas NW man Mick weighed in 54-10-8 of fish to 4lb, catching on breadpunch and then caster at 14m to leave the rest fishing for second.
That position was filled by Brian Steven, who also found some bream plus skimmers on caster and punch as he took 24-0-4 to the scales.
