He fished with his pole nine metres out with pellet as hook bait over a moderate feed of micro pellet, cupped in every 30 minutes.

Second place just 2ozs behind was Alan Dobson with 17lbs 7ozs, again mostly crucian carp.

The club's next match will be on February 17 at Decoy Lakes, Whittlesey, near Peterborough.
