DEEPING St James AC fished the small match lake at North View Lakes, Gedney Hill, for the club’s Exeter Cup Match on Sunday.

The venue didn’t disappoint with only two anglers weighing in less than 50lb and just one fish separating the top two anglers.

Graham Page took his first trophy win with the club with a weight of 90lb 13oz. He caught carp throughout the match on the method feeder using groundbait and hair rigged boilie casting tight to the side of one of the Islands.

On the opposite bank but with no island to fish to was Nick Preston who chose to fish the margin, using sweetcorn over pellet he pushed the winner all the way and finished with 89lb 2oz, in third place was Nigel Briggs with 77lb 2oz.

The club is allowing limited pre-booked night fishing at their Horseshoe Lake near Wansford and the first anglers to take up the opportunity have not been disappointed with carp of 22lb and 18lb.
