There was a good turnout for the latest Skegness Pier Angling Club (SPAC) match held at Chapel Point. The match was the first to be held in memory of long time SPAC member Roy Parker, who sadly passed away in early August last year.
Unfortunately the catches did not live up to expectations and Croxton’s Dave Burr needed just seven flounders for 189cm to run out easy winner. Up and coming junior angler Tom Marshall made the journey up from Corby worthwhile, by taking second place with two flounders, a sole and a silver eel measuring 134cm in total. Tom made his good day complete, by also taking the heaviest round fish prize with his 51cm eel. Withern’s Fred Donner only joined SPAC earlier this year, but his rapidly improving match fishing skills saw him take third place with four flounders and a sole for 132cm. Skegness local Dave Bradley is making a habit of taking the longest flatfish prize and was in the money again with a nice 35cm (1lb 2oz) flounder.
The next SPAC match will be held on Saturday 26th Jul from 4:30 till 8:30pm at Trunch Lane, with SPAC members fishing for the Festival Trophy. There is also an open section, which non-members are welcome to participate in. For further information please contact SPAC Secretary Chas Tibble on 07984 967988 or firstname.lastname@example.org
