Skegness Rover 2011

The penultimate Skegness Pier Angling Club (S.P.A.C) match of the year was a biggest fish rover fished anywhere between Mablethorpe and Gibraltar Point, with anglers weighing in their single heaviest fish only. Unfortunately once again the cod did not show, with whiting deciding all the top placings. Match organiser Chas Tibble booked in all of the competitors at the Lakeside Leisure complex, Trunch Lane, then fished the beach straight in front of the complex throughout the 6 hours event. Fishing big chunks of frozen peeler crab on a 2 hook pennell rig at distance, he caught a 1lb 1oz 8dram whiting early in the match, which was just enough for first place. Kettering’s Jim Robinson continued his recent run of good form by taking second place with a 15oz 8dram whiting. Croxton’s Dave Burr caught 9 whiting to win a Chapel Beach Angling Club match run concurrently with the S.P.A.C event and made a good day complete by also taking third place in the rover with his best fish, which weighed in at 15oz 7drams.

The final SPAC fixture of 2011 is a Xmas Fayre match, which will be held on Sunday 18th December from 9am till 1pm at Jacksons Corner, with Club Members fishing for the Carlsberg Trophy. There is also an open section, which non-members are welcome to participate in. The match HQ is the Lookout Pub, where a festive buffet will be laid on after the match, along with a grand raffle. For further information (including bait requirements) please contact SPAC Secretary Chas Tibble on 07984 967988 or
