Pride of place went to Hugh Bairner with four rainbows for 21lbs 8ozs, followed by Mr. Thompson who took two fish for 13lbs 8ozs. Overall the most successful patterns were small green and black lures.

Burnside improved as the week went on with Flavio returning eight fish on the catch and release option. Small lures and buzzers were top methods.

The any legal method/bait pond (Woodside) had two days which stood out from the rest.

Sunday was also an extremely rewarding day with 19 fish being landed for a combined weight of 31lbs. Green powerbait was again top bait but other colours of powerbait also did the trick.
