Skegness Pier Angling Club – Dodsworth Cup

by Chas Tibble

Bass were again the feature specie in the latest Skegness Pier Angling Club (SPAC) match held from Chapel Six Marsh. Wrangle’s Alan Steadman caught seven of the silver bars, to finish way ahead of the rest of the field with 7lb 5½oz. His best bass was a decent 2lb 8oz (46cm) specimen, which took the heaviest round fish prize. After a couple of matches break, Croxton’s Dave Burr returned to the fold in style, to take second place with 3 small bass weighing 1lb 10½oz. Filling the frame in third place was Skegness local Dave Bradley, whose tiny bass and small flounder had a combined weight of just 8oz! His 3oz flounder was quite valuable however; as it was just good enough to beat off Barry Roper’s miniscule dab, to take the heaviest flatfish award. Credit goes to all the anglers who caught, as every fish was returned to the sea to fight another day.

The next SPAC match is the popular Lincolnshire Pairs event, which will be held on Sunday 27th June from 5:30 till 9:30 pm, with registration at Wolla Bank. The match is open to everyone and will be pegged over two zones on beaches north of Chapel. For further information contact SPAC Secretary Chas Tibble on 07984 967988 or
