CHAPEL Beach Angling Club’s second Penn Points open of the year was fished at Chapel Point at the weekend.

There was a northerly wind and it was a dull damp day, and while the sea was calm to start off with, it slowly started building up and was choppy towards the end of the match.

Anglers from all over the area came to fish the match, and four England international fishermen were among them.

The winner of the match and also the club’s Vine cup was Chapel member Phil Aston with his flounder and mackerel, weighing in at 1lb 6oz. Phil also won the prize for the biggest round fish.

In second place was George Smith, who fishes for SPAC, and is also an England international, with a catch of two flounders weighing in at 1lb 1/2oz.

In third place was Chapel member Mark Robinson, with his catch of a flounder weighing in at 1lb, which also won Mark the prize for the biggest flat fish.

In total, 13 fish were caught; mostly flounders and the one mackerel.

Despite the low number of catches, everyone had a good day, and thanks are expressed to Richard and Sylvia from Fat Wally’s for providing anglers with sandwiches and a warm place to hold the presentation.

Next week, club members will be fishing in the Lincolnshire open at the Lookout, which has been organised by the Humber Sea Angling Club.
