Saturday the 3rd of November – Winter Qualifier – Jay & Raven Lakes – 32 Fished

After the horrendous weather of the previous weekend, it was a very settled autumnal day that greeted the 32 anglers who fished this week’s Winter Qualifier. With the match being split between two lakes, the now standard Continental Payout would be in place. With both lakes showing decent form over the past couple of weeks, it was going to be a very close affair, with all anglers being in with a chance of getting amongst the money.

Jay Lake – 16 Pegs

Jay produced good sport for those who figured out the required feeding tactics for the day, and for those who got it right, there were plenty of bites to be found. the lake was won from peg 40 by James Taylor, who fished soft and hard pellet to the far bank to put a very impressive 140lbs 02ozs on the scales for a comfortable lake win. Second on the lake went to St Neots based Ricky Ashwell on peg 37, he fed dead maggots down the track with maggot on the hook to weigh in 108lbs 08ozs, with Adam Playford on peg 29 taking third on the lake with 94lbs 08ozs
