Dean Malin won round seven of Shiplate Farm’s Winter Series held in chilly conditions.

ROUND seven of Shiplate Farm’s Winter Series was held on the main lake and escaped most of the overnight frost.

The south easterly breeze made conditions uncomfortably chilly for most anglers, particularly those on pegs 10 to 15 as the wind was in their face for most of the match.

When Pete Sivell drew favoured peg 15, he started strongly. Although he had some nice sized carp in the less breezier moments, he struggled to keep the fish feeding.

Tim Lewis on peg 11 had some cracking sized carp which gave him second overall place, but it was Dean Malin on peg one that romped home with the winning bag of 54lb 12oz to take first place.

You may also want to watch:

Dean fished maggot on the lead, alternating with double corn to attract the carp to his swim.

Results: Dean Malin (Shimano/Dynamite) peg 1, 54lb 12oz; Tim Lewis (Shiplate) peg 11, 42lb 2oz; John Hawkins (Bristol PO) peg 7, 30lb 6oz; Pete Sivell (Frys) peg 15, 23lb 14oz.
