He’s a sole man! Steadman claims second spot at SPAC meeting

Have your say

WRANGLE angler Alan Steadman claimed second spot at the latest Skegness Pier Angling Club (SPAC) match.

The event was billed as a sole match, and was arranged to be fished at Winthorpe Avenue, over low water and on a neap tide, specifically to target the tasty flatfish.

However, smoothounds muscled in on proceedings.

Alan caught more fish than winner Dave Burr (69lb 9½oz), but their smaller average size saw his haul weigh in at 58lb 10½oz.

Smoothounds are ineligible for the heaviest round fish award, so Wrangle’s Paul Cridland was the winner with a tiny ½oz (17cm) weever.

The next SPAC match will be on Sunday at Wolla Bank (10am-2pm).
