A MATCH on the Main Lake saw some larger carp being caught all around the lake.
Turbulent weather over the previous 36 hours made the fish pickier feeders, but when the carp did feed they were mainly good doubles.
Tich Williams drew peg 15 and fished the tip to lawn using 10mm boilies with small PVA bags mixed with pellet and ground bait to lure in some good carp, giving his winning bag a total weight of 63lb 2oz
Results: Tich Williams (Thyers) p15, 63lb 2oz; Steve Howell (Shiplate) p7, 46lb 14oz; John Dursley (Enterprise Angling) p4, 37lb. Silvers went to James Gunter (Clevedon) p11, 9lb 12oz.
