Weights fell off badly then with Alan Forrest coming second on 16lb 9oz and Marcus Webb third with 16lb.


Eldernell Lake was the venue for Yaxley, Farcet, Holme and District AC’s points match but weights were poor as temperatures plunged overnight.

First home was Frank Bevilacqua, who, with two bonus carp, managed to put a modest 4lb 7¼oz on the scales, pipping Keith Rounding,who weighed in 4lb 4oz.

Both anglers fished red maggot on the pole close in, as did third-placed Mike Mahon, who weighed in 2lb 12½oz.


Whittlesey AA were back at the Carrot Wash section just above Pondersbridge on Saturday and Andy Wilding took top spot with 10lb 5oz of small fish caught on a three metre whip with pinkie over groundbait.

Runner-up was Mike Mohan on 7lb 1oz and third Andy Bull with 6lb 15oz.
