Winner Pete Hodgetts was the only angler to break the ton midweek, and he did it in style with 151lb 1oz taken on the pole and meat out at 12m. Landing over 40 carp to 8lb, Pete actually arriving late for the draw and wasn’t ready at the start having set-up just two rigs - one for his far line and one for the margin. At the 12m mark he bagged 12 small carp to 4lb in the first two hours before hooking two fish from the margin. In the last two hours he landed the bigger fish, feeding with the pole cup and over the top with the catty if he didn’t get a bite.  
Second place was Steve Keyworth. Steve struggled for the first two hours before a change to corn from pellet brought him a string of carp to 9lb for a total of 97lb 4oz.
