WRANGLE’S Alan Steadman overcame a disastrous start to win the latest Skegness Pier Angling Club match.
The cold snap sent the whiting shoals out into deeper water and it was resident flatfish that saved the day at Jacksons Corner.
In a match of two halves, Steadman missed bites and dropped fish. He then scaled his hook and bait size down for the last two hours, to run out easy winner with 12 flatties weighing 5lb 8½oz. He also took the heaviest flatfish prize with a specimen 1lb 4oz flounder and won the heaviest round fish prize by default with a 14oz dab.
