Pike Bag Underlines Drain's Potential

The North Level Drain in Cambridgeshire proved its potential during a recent pike match when the winner weighed in with four fish for 45lb 3oz.

Jamie Cooper tempted his pike on smelt deadbaits to beat runner-up Colin Bartram by just over 4lb in the North Level Championship held at French Drove, near Thorney.

Jamie's biggest pike went 19lb 2oz, a specimen that ensured he beat Colin's six fish bag. Third place went to Chris Longsdale with 32lb 5oz.

Fishing is on a day ticket available on the bank or on a Tydd Gote AC club book. Call Dave Partlett on 01945 463913 between 6pm and 9pm for further details.
