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.
Richard Strange fished at just 4m throughout with meat, catching carp and F1 carp for a second-placed 130.0.0.
Andy Wiffen was third with 118.8.8 of F1’s and barbel on meat over pellet on the long pole to the island.
The next match is on June 15 at Rissington (11am).
The final North Oxford AS Summer Canal Series match was held on the Oxford Canal at King’s Bridge and although heavy boat traffic disrupted proceedings, the first two managed to record good weights.
They were pegged at either end of the stretch and made the most of it.
Bob Yeomans (RAF/Garbolino) took the honours with 9.13.0 of mainly perch on worm, closely followed by Terry Whittington with perch, roach and skimmers for 8.8.0. He alternated between maggot and worm.
