Maver Match This Qualifier Results

5 May 2016 Fishing News & Match Results

Maver Match This, Lindholme Lakes, Sunday May 1
A sellout qualifier at Garbolino Lindholme Lakes saw one hundred and twenty (120) anglers line the banks in readiness for this latest qualifier. Conditions leading up to the event had not been kind with arctic winds bringing with them ice and snow flurries in the week. Water temperatures were very low for the time of year as a result with fish clearly shoaling up as they would for winter. However, that said, fish were still there to be caught on pellet but, given the conditions, the draw was critical.

Continuing his unbelievable Match This track record and qualifying for his fifth final in six years was Preston Innovations rod, Andy Power. Andy drew arguably one of the best pegs on the complex in peg 20 on Beeches lake, but like everyone on the day, had to contend with some pretty awful weather conditions. Andy fished a great match to finish proceedings with a superb 128-11-00. Andy caught long on pole and pellet fished over to marginal cover on the far side to find fish up to 8lbs.

Lingmere Fishery owner, Stephen Openshaw, took second place from neighbouring peg 21 on Beeches. Again, like Andy, Steve found carp in numbers to pole and pellet before switching to his inside line late on for a few bonus edge fish to end the match with 88-13-00.

Andy Bailey secured a third place finish with a lake win from peg 78 on Bonsai. Andy fished pole and pellet long and short to offer a final 71-14-00 to the scales and round off the top three.
