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.
