AFTER a recent spate of good catches, anglers found it hard going in the latest Skegness Pier Angling Club (SPAC) match held at Wolla Bank, Chapel St Leonards.
Wrangle’s Paul Cridland decided not to fish with peeler crab at distance for smoothounds, but instead targeted smaller fish close in with lugworm, and ran out the easy winner with four flounders and a small bass for 3lb 2 1/2oz.
His bass weighed in at 11oz to also take the heaviest round fish prize.
Chapel Beach Angling Club member Paul Kennedy used his local knowledge to come in second with three flounders and a weever weighing 2lb 3 1/2oz.
His best flounder tipped the scales at 1lb 2oz and won the heaviest flatfish award.
Boston’s Mo Fendyke continued with his recent run of good form to take third place with two flounders for 1lb 2oz.
The next SPAC match will be held on Sunday, July 10, from 11.30am-3.30pm at Moggs Eye.
It will be a festival open event and non-members will be welcome to participate.
