Adam and Nathan win our Predator Pairs on a tough day at Warwick

Congratulations to team Castaways of Adam Brooks and Nathan Goodwin who won this year’s Predator Pairs with a hard-won 242cm. Teams had to record their four longest perch and four longest zander. It was a tough ask on a day when the canal was still carrying a lot of colour from the recent torrential rain.

Team Canalmasters of Mike McGuire and Richard Haines were second with 238cm and Team No Name of Vidar Thomassen and Alan Brown third with 227cm.

Biggest zander of 58cm was caught by Marcin Kusztelak of Polish Fishing Club and biggest perch of 34cm went to Andy Dougan of Power Rangers.
Thanks to our sponsor Todber Manor Lure Division who provided tackle vouchers to our winners and a purchase discount to all our competitors.

This year’s event was in memory of our friend, fellow angler and LACC member Greg Canter, who passed away earlier this year. Greg’s brother Andrew and his fishing partner Daryn Pahl presented the trophies and fished the competition. Proceeds from the event will be shared in honour of Greg with Get Hooked on Fishing and to buy starter kit for our own Get Into Lure Fishing events.

Thank you to all who supported our event today. See Facebook for more photos.

Team No Name win round 4 and top the pairs league

Fourteen teams chose the pouring rain and driving winds of the Grand Union Canal towpath at Radford over the rugby world cup final today. It was a good choice (honest) as the day saw a closely fought contest and all but one team catching fish.

Team No Name of Vidar Thomassen and Alan Brown ran out winners with 397cm made up of 8 perch and 5 zander. Second were Realistic Shad of Stephen Coldicott and Greg Bafia with 352cm that included 3 zander, 6 perch and a pike. Third were No Wasps Here of Steve Wilson and Derek Holmes with 325cm made up of 10 perch and 3 zander.

Biggest zander of 46cm was caught by Paul Claydon and largest perch of 34cm was caught by Tom Andrews.

There’s only one round left to fish, and this year’s title is still up for grabs. Team No Name have a narrow lead at the top of the league followed by No Wasps Here and Realistic Shad.

No Wasps Here win round 3 on prolific Warwick canal

The Grand Union canal at Warwick showed once again why it is the LACC’s most prolific stretch of water. Thirty-two anglers fishing round 3 of the pairs league caught 169 fish between them.

Ten teams finished with more than 300cm and 7 teams returned more than 400cm.

Winners on the day were No Wasps Here, Steve Wilson and Derek Holmes, with 22 fish for a total of 695cm.

Brummies, the father and son team of Rob and Mike Busby, took second with 20 fish for 571cm. Rob also caught the biggest perch of the day at 34cm to net five bonus points.

Third was Team North West of Balint Koder and Brachna Gyorgy with 17 fish for 548cm.

Mike McGuire of Canalmasters took the bonus points for the biggest zander of the day at 65cm.
