A blustery wind was also going to make things a bit tougher for most of us.
I was drawn the far end peg 14, the end peg nearest the car park being the favoured one, I fed micros and corn at 12m, micros at 5m and micros and corn at 5m in the left margin.
It was a tough day at this end of the lake with just odd carp now and then mainly on my 5m line with either corn, hard pellet or expander on the hook with just one big carp from the 12m line.
In the last 2 hours I managed to catch a few from the margin but with about 50lb I was not going to be anywhere near framing this time.
As expected, sure enough Josh had run away with the win from the other end peg with over 200lb.
