There was a great turnout for the first round of this year’s LACC pairs league with 18 teams taking to the Grand Union Canal at Hatton Locks.
The fishing proved tough. Not a single perch was landed and the honours went to teams able to find and target some of the quality zander in this stretch.
Team Weapons of Mass Destruction of Jamie Potts and Tom Knight blew everyone else out of the water with a phenomenal 350cm of zander, all caught by Jamie. Jamie’s catch included two 62cm fish and a 58cm fish.
A long way behind in second were Steve Wilson and Derek Holmes of No Wasps Here with 119cm, including bonuses, made up of two zander of 46cm and 48cm. Third place went to Lee Perry and Paul Danby of Trentside Predator Angling with three zander for 115cm. Only seven teams caught on the day.
Full scoring results:
Weapons of Match Destruction 350cm
No Wasps Here 119cm
Trentside Predator Angling 115cm
Snoek-Baar Stars 66cm
Leigh Lure Anglers 59cm
Round 2 of the pairs league takes place at the Blue Lias on May 19.
