Most opted for the Weir bank with encouraging catches of whiting, dogfish and dabs. P. Thornton and his partner R. Lowe decided to move into the Rand after a few hours however which proved fruitful for them as Richard landed a skate of 7lb 4.4oz and a bass of 2lb 0.2oz within the first few minutes of the move.
The skate won him the heaviest fish pool.
Brothers G. Mummery and S. Mummery made the best choice in the end though by fishing the Woolpack area, George won the event comfortably, besting 2nd place by nearly 10lb including a small skate of his own with Sam narrowly missing out on 2nd spot.
