One of the nation’s top bagging waters hit top form during the latest event with the top eight sharing over 2200lb of carp between them!
Topping the field on the day with a back breaking 324lb 2oz was Barry Mason. The Tubertini backed rod decided to use pellet, meat and corn in the margins from peg 3 and was into fish from the off, with the biggest specimen nudging the 8lb mark.
Triple tons were needed to even make the frame, with runner up Nick Darke landing 320lb 2oz and third placed Gary Thorpe taking 304lb 2oz.
