Connor Barlow beats the cold to take carp and F1s...

Partridge Lakes

Covey Canal Lakes (54 pegs)

Bitterly-cold conditions, coupled with a north-westerly wind, saw weights plummet, but the fishery still produced some consistent sport.

Top rod from peg 47 on Canal 2 was Connor Barlow, who started the match on maggot at 6m fishing in deep water, and then later switched to the margins fishing the long pole down the edge to take small carp and F1s to finish on 45-8-0.

Second place from peg 67 on Canal 3 was Jason Berry, who stuck it out on the long pole for most of the day, fishing single maggot to weigh in 40-2-0.

Result: 1 C Barlow, Daiwa/Guru, 45-8-0; 2 J Berry, Wigan Angling Centre, 40-2-0;

3 A Twist, Matrix Leigh Tackle & Bait, 38-11-0; 4 J Howarth, Tri-Cast Highfield, 36-8-0; 5 L Bamber, Matrix Leigh Tackle & Bait, 36-6-0; 6 T Madden, Sensas NW, 35-15-0.
