Golden Rod Feeder Championship Qualifier No12, Hallcroft Fishery, Saturday 13th January 2024

Today’s qualifier at Hallcroft  presented another total 60 peg sellout.

Winner today was Jason Cawthorne who drew peg 102 on the Moat Lake.
Jason fished the hybrid feeder with various waffter hook baits landing a superb bag of carp that scaled in at 132-5-0.
Jason has been a runner up on his zone a least 3 times, so deserves his place in the final.

Andy progresses to the March Final.

Third placed George Robinson weighed in 111-5-0 from peg 6 on the Bridge Lake and automatically qualifies for the March Final.
George fished the hybrid feeder and waffters at distance.

Fourth on the day was Rob Burgin from peg 55 from Bridge outer.
Rob weighed in 95-15-0 of carp all caught on the hybrid feeder and waffters.
