A haul weighing in at more than 52lbs saw Steve Pell win the Sunday Open on Westwood Lakes.

On a bright but breezy day, the fish which have been lying dormant switched on and reasonable weights were caught by all anglers.

Pell was victorious after using fishing pellet across for a weight of 52lb 9oz from peg 21 on Osprey Lake for a mixed bag.

The match was fished across both Osprey and Falcon Lakes.

In second was Boris Kilner, ahead of Ian Kent.

Results: 1 Steve Pell (Ross Lakes) 52lb 2oz, 2 Boris Kilner (Army) 50lb 12oz, 3 Ian Kent (Westwood Lakes) 47lb, 4 Paul Harsley (Daves Peg) 43lb 9oz.
