THERE were no fewer than nine weights over the 100lb mark in round three of the FTB Oxford Carp League at Tunnel Barn Farm, Warwickshire.
Jenny’s Lake was the pool used and the fish were in obliging mood.
Dave Hawkins topped the 17-strong field with 149lb 2.0oz.
He started fishing at 16m to the island with meat, catching carp and barbel before switching to the margins late on to tempt some bigger specimens to 10lb.
