Kettering’s Jim Robinson ran out easy winner of the latest Skegness Pier Angling Club (SPAC) match, held at Jackson’s Corner.

Jim caught a small rockling, an even smaller whiting and a specimen lesser spotted dogfish, measuring 103cm in total.

This was more than enough to give him his second win on the trot and added the Ex-Servicemens Cup to his season’s trophy tally.

He also won the longest round fish prize with his 60cm dogfish, which weighed in at a level 2lb.

This puts it as front-runner for the SPAC Fish of the Month competition.

Some way behind in second place was Friskney’s Mark Holmes, who cut back on his long distance back-casts to take two flounders at close range for 53cm.

He also won the longest flatfish prize with a 32cm flounder.

Skegness local Dave Bradley managed to beat his superstar daughter for a change, to take third place with two small flounders measuring 44cm.

It was a close run thing though, with top lady angler Helen continuing her current good run of form by coming in fourth with a 28cm flounder.

The next Skegness Pier Angling Club match will be held on Saturday, March 29, from 2.30-6.30pm at Moggs Eye, with club members fishing for the Stan Marvin Cup.

There is also an open section, which non-members are can take part in.
