AT Cider Farm Lakes there was a red letter day for Gary Cross, finally achieving the magical 100lbs mark after 40 years of fishing during the Wednesday Open match fished on Dabinett Match Lake.

But he only just made it finishing with 100-02 lbs of carp to five pounds from peg 21 with pellet hookbait poled at 10 metres. But that only gave him third placing, after Craig Tucker weighed in 117-04 lbs from peg 7 mostly caught in open water.

At the other end of the lake 17-year-old Lewis Jones managed 110-05 lbs from peg 12 again with pellet but from the shallow island ledge. An excellent match that saw an average catch of 70lbs a man.

There is an open match every Wednesday and Sunday.
