SAFETY concerns for surfers at Sandilands necessitated a venue change for the latest Skegness Pier Angling Club match to Trunch Lane.
The move was opportune for Skegness local Dave Bradley, who won the match with three cod weighing 6lb 5oz.
He also took the heaviest round fish prize for his best cod, which turned the scales to 3lb 3oz.
In second place, with a single cod weighing 2lb 5oz, was another Skegness local Dan Leighton, who also took the heaviest flatfish award by default with his fish.
The only other angler to weigh in was match organiser Chas Tibble, who dusted the cobwebs off his rods to take third spot with a first cast 2lb 2oz cod.
There have been several reports of small cod from local beaches, so prospects are looking good for the next SPAC match on Sunday, March 27, between 10.30am-2.30pm at Chapel Point.
Club members will be fishing for the Ex-Service cup, and there will be an open section, which non-members are welcome to participate in.
