Gasson nets lucky qualifying spot at Monk Lakes Fish 'O' Mania

Recommended Posts

Wet and windy conditions greeted the 95 anglers at this latest Fish 'O' Mania qualifier held at Monk Lakes, Kent  on Saturday 8th June, with conditions on the day making fishing difficult for everyone taking part.

Runner up Mark Griffiths, (Guru/Mainline Match) from Northampton fished pellets on the long pole to take carp to 14lb in his net of 161-8-0 from peg 67 on Lake 2.  Third place fell to another newcomer fishing his first Fish 'O' Mania qualifier, Jeffrey Driscoll on peg 115 fished pellet on the pole to take carp to 15lb on Lake 3 in his 159-0-0 net.  In fourth place saw Tony Gilbert from peg 69 on Lake 2 landing 144-0-0.

The Angling Trust would like to thank Morgan and his fishery staff at Monk Lakes for being such good hosts and to Mark Morris for all his hard work on the day running the qualifier.

The next Fish 'O' Mania qualifier takes place at Partridge Lakes, Warrington on Wednesday 12th June.
