Silksworth Lake, Sunderland | 06/11/2011 | Number of pegs/anglers: 12
The first frost of the year arrived but never put the fish off the feed, all anglers were pegged around the top island using both banks.
Ian Foster won for the second week running, this time pegged on the opposite bank and with an island chuck. Using maggot as hookbait and starting on the groundbait feeder he caught a few small roach and gudgeon before switching to the waggler. He continued switching tactics catching steady through the match,his net being made up of 90% roach, with rudd, perch and gudgeon making up the rest,most fish being in the 1-3oz bracket with 1 roach going over the pound mark.
Second was Colin Bunnett with a bigger stamp of fish but fewer using feeder tactics also, before switching to waggler, again maggot being the hookbait choice.
Roger Turner was third casting to the island with a maggot feeder and maggot on the hook for a mainly roach catch,one being over a pound.
