Gordon Parker continued his good run of form in these matches topping the field with a very respectable 108lb 15oz from peg 23.

He started on a feeder to the island and caught a few carp before switching to a pole line and caught F1s and lots of skimmers on sweetcorn over pellets.

Runner-up from peg six was Mick Mitchell, who fished a short pole line to finish with 81lb 2oz, and he was followed by Dave Thornton from peg three with 78lb 7oz

The Beastie Lake started to show some better form on Sunday for the open match, although those fishing did have plenty of room.

Runner-up was Gavin Butler. He was on peg 18 and caught under the bridge and on a short pole out in front of him to finish on 96lb 1oz.

Third place went to Decoy regular Danny Carlton with 83lb 2oz from peg 15 on the feeder fished to the island.
