Skarba seals a terrific Tuesday Tenner match victory from Peg 38
PEG 38 on the car park bank came up a 108-6-0 winner for Gary Skarba in the Acorn Carp Fishery's Tuesday Tenner match fished on Paddock Match Lake at Kingston Seymour.
He poled luncheon meat long, short and at varying depths and was the only angler to hit the 100lb mark.
Second place came from two pegs away and fell to local expert Mike Owens, who put a banded 6mm pellet to work off Bridge peg 40 and weighed in 89-9-0 of silvers and carp.
Top of the silvers list was Charlie's Angels team captain, Charlie Barns, who poled maggot into the lakeside margins of peg 28 and included 15-1-0 of roach, skimmers, tench and f1s in his total catch.

A wet and windy day made fishing uncomfortable and lowered weights considerably for members of the Mardons AC, who fished the Crane Stretch of the Bristol Avon at Keynsham.
Weights may have been lower than expected, but competition was none the less fierce and only ounces separated the top two places.
Victory went to Ian Jones, who poled red maggot at three metres down the edge of peg 21 and weighed in 5-9-0 of roach and bits.
The runner-up was Mike Ball with a similar 5-4-0 taken from peg seven with red maggot and caster.
Result: 1, Ian Jones 5-9-0, peg 21; 2, Mike Ball 5-4-0, peg 7; 3, Dave Hulcoop 1-14-0, peg 8; 4, Alan Hopes 1-9-0, peg 14; 5, Andy Edwards 1-8-0, peg 1; 6, John Roberts 1-2-0, peg 7.
Despite the ever changing weather conditions at the Bridgwater Sedges, two members of the Bristol PSV AC managed to hit the 100lb mark.
Rich Britton beat Mark Radford to the top pools pay-out by the weight of just one decent-sized Tile Lake carp.
Britton fished a pellet waggler and an 8mm bait close to the aerator off peg 31 for a 116-14-0 result, while Radford poled paste at six metres off neighbouring peg 32 and included the top silverfish catch of 37-8-0 in his 108-0-0 total catch.
