THE sudden cold snap sent the whiting shoals out into deeper water and it was resident flatfish that saved the day in the latest Skegness Pier Angling Club match at Jacksons Corner.

In a match of two halves, Wrangle’s Alan Steadman had a disastrous start, with missed bites and dropped fish.

He then scaled his hook and bait size down for the last two hours, to run out easy winner with 12 flatties weighing 5lb 8½oz.

He also took the heaviest flatfish prize with a specimen 1lb 4oz flounder and to make a good day complete, won the heaviest round fish prize by default with a 14oz dab.
