John Allerton uncovers his lethal method for kicking-off a match on a commercial, guaranteed to get you ahead before the opposition can blink…

Team Lindholme romped home to victory in the Commercial Stillwater Championships on their home water in Epworth, nine points clear of their rivals.

A huge turnout of 280 anglers from around the country made their way to the venue on a cold morning, but were treated to a busy day's fishing.

Team Lindholme took home a cool £2,500 with two firsts and two seconds in sections backed up by a string of top 10 finishes to tally an impressive 108 points.

Second on the day were Drennan Barnsley Blacks with 99 points who narrowly edged out Team Garboilno on 98 points.

Best Individual on the day was ever consistent Neil Mckinnon (Team Lindholme/Preston Innovations Telford) who drew on Laurels peg 40. Neil caught 66kg 650gms of quality carp tight to the reeds on stepped up gear, his winning tactics being worm over micros.

Second Individual was Chris Kendall (Garbolino) who also amassed maximum points for his team off peg 64 on Bonsai with 51kg 075gms.

Rounding off the top three on the day was Joe Carass (Drennan Barnsley Blacks) with 44kg 100gms from peg 81 on Bonsai.

The Angling Trust would like to thank Neil Grantham for sponsoring the lucrative top prize and for use of his fishery and excellent staff at Lindholme Lakes. Thanks also to Jemma Phillips for the results system which provided excellent real time results.

Mick Owen has won the latest round of the Lindholme Natural Baits League, with an impressive 26-12-0 net of F1s, on what turned out to be a very tough day for competitors due to horrendous mid-week weather.

 The Garbolino Lindholme ace drew peg 43 on Bonsai, and caught his fish on maggots fished on the long pole.

Second placed Lee Kerry owned Laurels Lake, with his 21-5-8 net almost doubling second place on the pool. Lee caught mainly on maggots at 1m, banking most of his lake winning catch in the first couple of hours of the match.

In third place was Dale Shepherd. Drawn on peg 84 on Bonsai, he caught quality F1s fishing long pole down towards the bottom corner of the lake for 18-12-0.

In the league stakes, former karate world champion, and Matrix backed ace Craig Butterfield fought his way to the top of the board with two section wins and a second. Matt Pillay is second on two section wins and a third. The full, up to date league table can be seen below.
