Skegness Pier Angling Club – January 2013

by Chas Tibble

Stafford’s Dave Shorthouse was runaway winner of the first Skegness Pier Angling Club (SPAC) match of 2013, held in ideal conditions at Chapel Point. Dave beached 7 whiting and 11 dabs for an excellent bag weight of 8lb 6¾oz, adding the C Smith Cup to his growing hoard of silverware. Some way behind in second place was Wrangle’s Alan Steadman, with a 9 fish mixed bag for 5lb 3oz. Rapidly improving Friskney match angler Rob Ward came in third with 10 fish weighing 4lb 5oz and also won the heaviest flatfish prize for his second match on the trot, with a specimen 15oz dab. Match organiser Mark Holmes took the heaviest round fish award with a 1lb 3oz whiting.
