After no action at his syndicate lake overnight Chris Connaughton Mono had a hunch that a change of venue could pay dividends. A trip to Jennets for the afternoon produced a brace of 20s at 24lb and 20lb 4oz. The fish were tempted using monster baits presented on j precision hooks and 4oz Flat pear inline leads supplied by local tackle company Lakebed Leads.

The miild ,damp conditions locked perfect on the SWLakes Trust Reservoir in Bideford, but the shoals of roach and bream proved quite tricky to catch. The walk around the far side was worthwhile as the top 4 weights came off the higher numbered pegs.Neilsen Jeffery managed to sort them out on peg 10 on the point . He landed some nice bream on the groundbait feeder on red maggots, Mark Richards drew the end peg on the far side and had a great net, of mainly roach, on the pole on white maggot for 2nd . Kevin Shears was best of the rest with another feeder catch. The section A, near bank, winner was Peter Slade with a nice net of small roach, section B winner was Graham Currington with a feeder and slider net on peg 9.
