Maver Classic 2007 - Overview
Monday, 7th May 2007
A fantastic two day competition enjoyed by all. The format of the Maver Classic was to fish both the Match / Arena and Specimen lakes. Each angler having to fish a section on both lakes during the two day final. Over 11,000lbs of fish were recorded on the scales during the two days, making an average of over 55lbs of fish per angler per day.
The Match and Arena lakes produced some incredible weights to both pellet and paste, fished to depth and shallow. Where as the Specimen lake was a little more unpredictable due to early spawning, heavy cross winds and overall angling pressure. It still however, produced some fantastic bream and carp catches, with specimen carp to 18lbs being common.
