Skylark Open Match

Tuesday 22nd October 2013 (15 anglers)

Local junior rising star Adam Swain (WWLakes) showed his true potential in todays Open Match with a polished win from Peg 5, weighing 43lbs 0oz to be nearly 10lbs clear of the field.  Adam fished across to the island to catch mainly Carp and F1’s on red maggot over groundbait.  Steve Lane (Maruyku/WWLakes) Peg 15 weighed 34lbs 8oz for second and Terry Green (WWLakes) Peg 13 third with 28lbs 8oz, as the fish continue to show on this side of the lake.

Match Fishing magazine has an article in the November issue about net limits, done at Westwood Lakes earlier this year.  It makes for a great read, as four of our regular match anglers go head to head to see who can judge their weights the nearest to the 50lbs limit.
