WIGAN anglers had some excellent results at the weekend.

Jon Neafcy, who runs the Wigan region of the pike anglers club of Great Britain, hailed a catch by John Boothman’s as a record.

He said: “We had cracking property average of 21lbs 6ozs and a few lovely stunners from Wyre lake.

“John caught ‘Glad 3’ at a whopping 38lbs 6oz – the biggest ever recorded weight – and Garry Brown caught ‘Long Common’ from Wyre at 31lbs.

“Mark Bowman has a beautiful looking 29lber – the winter colours are breath-taking at the moment. There was a lovely 28lber from River lake and a couple of upper doubles from S1.

“As well as a good quantity of jack pike being caught from Wyre, Bantons, S1, S2 and River lakes there has been some considerably high doubles from River lake including a stunning 20lber – these high pike figures have been quite a mystery to us as we have had such a warm October and November.”

The next coarse match on Fox’s lake is on Sunday December 14 and their next pike match is on the same day.
