Although fish were again showing all round Lake Two for the Wednesday KOBRA Open, Coalville’s Pete Wood on peg A20 was a clear winner with 126lb – beating second by nearly 25lb.  Pete started on the feeder, but after a few early carp sport slowed so he switched to pellet waggler fished to the boom to catch steadily for the remainder of the match.

Second placed Shane Desmond (Dynamite Baits) on peg A4 caught on pellet and bomb for his 101-04 second placed weight, just edging out Nuneaton Nomad Jim Innes (peg A14) whose 101-02 carp catch all fell to pellet waggler.

Sport was hard on the Thursday KOBRA Open held on Thames at Dynamite Makins, with most anglers struggling for bites.

The top two came from the car park end of the Lake, where Dale Armes (West Lodge Match Group) on peg 1 landed some good carp from the margins on paste and pellet to put a winning 44-00 on the scales.

Danny Ross (Tackle Shack) fished a similar match on peg 19 for his 34-14 for second, whilst Phil Hull (Lanes Bait & Tackle) alternated between meat and caster for his mixed catch of 34-00 for third place.

1st    Dale ARMES        West Lodge Match Group        44-00
