Then came Mel Lutkin on 69lb 12oz and Mac Campbell, fresh from his section win in the seniors national in midweek, with 62lb 4oz.
Martin Harwood returned to form in the latest Haddon Lodge match, catching carp on floating baits along with skimmers and roach on the pole with pellet for 36lb 5oz. Runner-up was George Bates with 25lb 2oz followed by Lucio Melillo with 9lb 10oz.
