Re­sults from top matches

WITH spawn­ing out of the way on most com­mer­cial fish­eries, an­glers have been able to set­tle down to some se­ri­ous fish­ing – and some big weights have been re­ported across the coun­try.

Som­er­set wa­ter Bait-Tech Viaduct fish­ery is never far away when big weights are men­tioned.

And this week is no dif­fer­ent, with the lat­est round of the Spring League see­ing a mas­sive 325-5-0 win­ning weight for Pre­ston In­no­va­tions Thatcher’s man Sam Pow­ell. From peg 85 on Cary Lake, he bagged 36 carp – 20 on pel­let shal­low tac­tics, the rest from the mar­gins.

Run­ner-up Craig Ed­munds also joined in on the triple ton ac­tion, bag­ging 304-10-0 from Camp­bell Lake to earn him­self an all-im­por­tant sec­tion win. He now sits on a per­fect four points in the league, the same as Ai­den Bor­duik.

Stay­ing in the south, Gar­bolino/ Bait-Tech an­gler Mike McMil­lan or­gan­ised a two-day bash at Kent’s Monk Lakes to raise money for Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port and hon­our the me­mory of his late fa­ther, George, an im­pres­sive £1,625 go­ing into the cof­fers from gen­er­ous an­glers. The fish­ing wasn’t shabby ei­ther, Es­sex bag­ger Pemb Wright­ing win­ning with a per­fect two points af­ter weigh­ing in 235-4-0 from Lake 2 and 188-12-0 from Lake 1. Ross Harold also chipped in with a dou­ble ton on day two with 277-8-0 from Lake 2.

Mas­sive weights haven’t only been con­fined to com­mer­cials, though, as the Aire & Calder Canal at Heck fi­nally saw a ton of bream taken af­ter sev­eral near misses in the Mir­field AC Spring League.

Craig Tur­bitt was the man to do it, heav­ing 105-12-0 of slabs on to the scales from peg 128, where he fished ground­bait feeder with worm and caster. Sec­ond place went to John Cy­rowski with 74-12-0 of bream.

It’s also been a busy few weeks on the big-money match qualifier front.

Fish O’Ma­nia saw two more men win through as Adam Richards took the mid­week elim­i­na­tor at Guru Makin’s Fish­ery with 154-6-0, mak­ing it yet an­other fi­nal for the Brown­ing man.

Join­ing him at Cud­more next month is Andy Dar­gue, the Mosella Quaker man get­ting the best of a peg-to-peg bat­tle with Ben Fisk at The Oaks Fish­ery with 263-6-0 of carp on paste. The Colmic Golden Reel event also wel­comed a dou­ble-header. Pre­ston In­no­va­tions ace Andy Power won at Par­tridge Lakes with 107-1-0 from Covey Canal 5.

And at Barston Lakes, Jack Danby did the busi­ness with 120-4-0 of carp on pel­let shal­low off peg 69 on the dam wall. That left the fi­nal big qualifier of the week as the Maver Mega

Match This band­wagon rolled into Maver/Dy­na­mite Baits Hay­field Lakes, host venue for the £70,000 fi­nal later this sum­mer.

Cresta-backed David Bur­ley took his chance from Adam’s Lake, bag­ging 114-2-0 of carp on pel­let shal­low tac­tics.

Just part of Sam Pow­ell’s mas­sive weight of 325-5-0 from Viaduct.
