On a very cold, damp, overcast day, 21 anglers fished this weeks Winter Qualifier. The anglers were split between Jay & Raven lakes with 10 anglers on Jay and 11 on Raven, with the now normal continental pay out in place.

Jay Lake

Yet again, the fish in Jay lake weren’t in the mood for a feed, making the going exceptionally hard for the majority of the field. Top spot was taken by Nigel Fawkes on peg 2. The St Neots based rod fished maggot and bread to put 43lbs 10ozs on the scales for a comfortable lake win. Peg 6 was also in reasonable form, with Scott Ford taking 25lbs 11ozs, with Dennis Page on peg 11 taking third on the lake with 15lbs 08ozs.
