Float Fish Farm was the venue for Deeping St James AC’s sweepstake match which was held on two islands, and some good weights were recorded.

With a helping back wind, once again Mike Atherton showed off his skills with the pellet waggler with which he caught small carp throughout the match on peg 7 to weigh a winning 96lb 3oz.

In second place on the opposite side of the lake was Ray Torrington on peg 31, who fished the method feeder to the island to take small carp before switching to the margins on meat to take carp up to 10lb and weighed 79lb 3oz.

In third place on peg 5 was Alan Jopling who also had some good size carp to finish with 63lb 6oz.
