There was a close result in the latest Skegness Pier Angling Club (SPAC) match, held in perfect conditions at North Shore Road.

Croxton’s Dave Burr had a ding-dong battle throughout with Wrangle’s Alan Steadman,

With a late triple shot of dabs giving Dave his first win of 2015, with eleven fish measuring 267cm.

In addition to winning the Ex-Servicemens Cup, he also won the longest round fish prize with a 28cm (6oz) whiting.

After being in the lead for most of the match, Alan eventually had to settle for second place with seven dabs for 180cm, also winning the longest flatfish prize with a 30cm (12oz) dab.

In a reduced entry due to some SPAC members fishing a big open match on the Yorkshire coast, nobody else managed to catch a fish.

The next SPAC match will be held on Saturday, March 14 from 3.30 to 7.30pm at Moggs Eye, with Club members fishing for the Stan Marvin Cup.

There is also an open section, which non-members are welcome to participate in.
