I had the pleasure of fishing the Humber SAC match last Sunday on the Humber Bank Wall. It was a massive tide and I’m pleased to say that it was an excellent turn out for this well organised event and the friendly atmosphere was apparent. Fish were small and few and far between through the match length. At the weigh in local RNLI Chief Jack Barlow was in command of the fishing he had five fish for 1lb 8½oz pushing Del Miles into second place by one once. Third place went to Steve McGregor who fished small and light at close range to pick up four fish in the last hour.
This Sunday the club’s match is at Humberston Creek fishing 10.30 to 2.30pm. Meet at Anthony’s bank Car Park at 09.15hrs. The fishing for flounders has been brilliant at the creek and there have been up to thirty anglers fishing this venue during the week. King rag and fish baits have been taking most of the fish.
Reckitts SAC were in action last week on the open coast and top man in the Super league was Chris Wray with a single cod for 1.29kg, second was Mike Brockman with a cod and a whiting for 1.12kg while third placed John Levesley had a cod for 1.1kg. In the premier league Dave Dimaline had four flounders for 1.25kg to take first place. Barry Ramshaw finished second with five flats for 1.22kg ahead of Elliot Spicer who weighed a cod for 1.07kg.
Unfortunately the entire field blanked in the latest S.P.A.C. match held at Sandilands, Skegness on Saturday 30th January. SPAC AGM will be held on Saturday 13th February, commencing at 19:00 hours in the New Park Club, Scarborough Avenue, Skegness. This will be followed by the presentation of trophies from the 2009 season and a buffet. All are welcome to attend the AGM and participation the social event afterwards.
Next SPAC match takes place the day following the AGM on Sunday 14th February, fishing from 16:00 to 20:00 hours at North Shore Road, with members fishing for the Healey Cup. There is also an Open section, which non-SPAC members are welcome to participate in. Contact me on 07984 967988 or by e-mail, for further details.
Despite the blank at Sandilands, North Shore has been fishing consistently well for dabs of late and these should feature in the bulk of catches.
