Strong winds and rain made it hard for anglers at the Newmarket AC Open at Fraser’s Fishery.
But fittingly Mark Mayes came out top on Mark’s Lake off peg 15 with 48lb 8oz.
All of Mayes’ fish were caught on double maggot over dead maggot.
Second spot went to Vic Gladwell (peg 9) with 25lb, while Gary Rimmer came in third from peg 10 with 24lb 4oz.
n Meanwhile, the Newmarket club has started to use the new lake at Jeagor Farm, near Mildenhall, as a base for their home matches.
