Share this article

MOGGS Eye was the venue for Chapel Beach Angling Club’s charity open match, fished between 10am-2pm, with anglers turning up from Skegness Pier Angling Club and the Humber Sea Angling Club to support the match.

The weather was fine and the sea was relatively calm, but unfortunatly the fish did not turn up to support the cause, with only one fish being caught.

The overall winner of the match was Bob Foster, from SPAC, with his flounder which also won him the prize for the biggest flat fish.

The prize winners for the second and third places and also the biggest round were selected by a draw of peg numbers, with second prize going to Danny Finch and third prize going to Jim Robinson, and the prize for the biggest round went to Dennis Sterling, also from SPAC.

A raffle in aid of Macmillan nurses took place at the presentation, and a total of £135 was raised.

Thanks are expressed to those who turned out to support the event, and to Sandilands Golf Club for the use of the venue for registration and presentation.

The next match will be held on Sunday, August 21, at Wolla Bank, between 8.30am-12.30pm.
