Thursdays evening match saw high winds and waves make the fishing very difficult for the anglers, the water colour was good with a nice tinge of colour, but presentation was spoilt by the strong wind and undertow. Good conditions for sailing, and there were plenty of boats about.
Making the best of the conditions was Jason Bird, who caught 5lb 9ozs of bream and skimmers on a groundbait feeder. Second was Adam Caswell with 4lb 10oz, consisting of 1 bream and 1 skimmer. Pete Sivell was third with 3lb 6oz. Pete Ellis had 1lb 14oz of perch and rudd on the pole and maggot and Dave Clutterbuck had 1lb 12oz of perch for fifth. Andy Curry was sixth with 1lb 5oz of perch and dace.
