The latest Shiplate Farm Winter Series finished in a downpour.

ROUND six of the Shiplate Farm Winter Series was held on the Hawthorns and Westpool match lakes.

Weather conditions were damp and blustery and the match finished in a downpour, so most anglers were wet by the end of the match.

Russ Peck drew peg 12 on the Westpool, fished the pole to the far shelf using maggot for bait, feeding micro pellet and won the match with 47lb 8oz, closely followed by Steve Howell who drew peg five Hawthorns, and bagged 42lb to take second place.

Section winers were Dean Malin (peg 15 Westpool), 38lb 9oz and jointly Alan Healey (peg 15 Hawthorns) and Tom Light (peg 9 Hawthorns), both weighing in 28lb 1oz.
