Top rod was Pete Sanderson. He drew down at the bottom end of the pool at peg 24 and caught all his fish on pellet and sweetcorn just over the middle to start with, then down the edges in the last couple of hours to record 139lb 4oz.

I managed to snatch the runner-up spot catching most of my fish up in the water with pellet from peg 30 for 111lb 10oz.

Colin Buckingham was third on 104lb 4oz.
