On Grand Union Canal, Lee Mooring fished early in the week before the canal froze over and managed a rare double figure pike while targeting perch.

Although the South Lagoon has been frozen on and off through this week, Mark Harley managed to catch a couple of pike to 7lb 12oz and a nice perch.

Day tickets for non Luton AC members are available for the Lagoon on the bank.

Abbey Lads fished the Grand Union Canal and after a hard frost, plus the level being down due to lock repairs, the weights weren’t too bad for January.

Results: 1, D Whillock, 8lb 6oz (three perch about 2lb+ small perch and roach); 2, K Young, 6lb 12ozs 8drms (skimmers); 3, P Deppe, 6lb 4oz (roach and perch); 4, S Marsh, 4lbs 12o (skimmers); 5, D Smith, 1lb 2oz (roach); 6, l Charles, 1lb (roach).
