Pete Howson won the Cock Inn match.

It was no supprise to see weights much lower than of late but matchwinner Andy Gausden did do justice to one of the best pegs on the complex. Drawn on peg 25, he fished the waggler with red maggot taking fish to 8lb to finish with 107lb 1oz.

Second was Barry Nicholls on peg five with 38lb 8oz followed by Paul Irons (35lb 15oz).

It looks like Sunday was the day to draw one of the hot pegs at Decoy Lakes.

In the latest Cock Inn winter series Pete Howson drew peg four and took full advantage of a good peg to finish with a fine 56lb 10oz.

He was the only angler to catch proper carp. He caught all his fish shallow on prawn - not your usual winter bait but his bold approach paid off.

Runner-up from peg 10 was Steve Smith with 24lb 13oz and joint 3rd with 18lb 7oz each were Chris Shortland and Pete Sanderson.

OVER 55s

In the Decoy Over 55s on Friday Gus Gausden topped the field from peg five putting 69lb 4oz to the scales taken on the pole with pellet. Will Hadley came second on 58lb 4oz, followed by Paul Green with 48lb 9oz.
