Jackson’s Corner was the aptly named venue for Neil Jackson’s win in the latest Skegness Pier Angling Club (SPAC) match. The Lincoln based match angler targeted small fish at medium range, winning the Derbyshire Miners Cup with 4 whiting and 2 dabs for 1lb 3½oz. He also won the heaviest round fish prize with his best whiting, which tipped the scales at a meagre 4oz. Kettering’s Dale Evans had been leading the match from early doors with a specimen 1lb 3oz flounder, but in the end had to settle for second place and the heaviest flatfish award. Wrangle’s Alan Steadman left it very late to scratch out a pair of small dabs to take third place with 10½oz, which regained his position at the top of the SPAC match points leader-board. Neil Jackson made a good day complete by easily beating Croxton’s Dave Burr in the 1st round of the 2012 SPAC Knockout.
The next SPAC match will be held on Sunday 13th May from 10am till 2pm at Sandilands. This will be the annual Species Hunt open, which non-members are welcome to participate in. For further information please contact SPAC Secretary Chas Tibble on 07984 967988 or firstname.lastname@example.org
