Angling: Gary's squids-in with league win
CLEETHORPES sea angler Gary Hutson continued his tremendous run of form with a win in the first fixture of the Squids In Summer League at Barton.
Hutson fished from peg one in the well-attended match and made full use of it to catch 278cm, despite being plagued by small undersized fish along with many anglers at that end of the zone.
Mark Taylor did well from an unfancied peg underneath the bridge. He had to go for a coat as he was in the shade and the wind. But he managed 276cm to take second, with England international George Smith in third with 254cm.
The biggest round fish was caught by 11-year-old Hannah Ashworth, who landed a nice 37cm bass.

Croxton's unstoppable Dave Burr continued his winning ways in the latest Skegness Pier Angling Club (SPAC) match at Trunch Lane.

In second place was another in-form angler, Corby's Paul Marshall, whose six flatties tipped the scales at 5lb 2oz. He also took the heaviest round fish prize with a nice 1lb 3oz flounder.
Despite breaking his expensive rod in two, Wrangle's Alan Steadman managed to catch two flounders and a nice silver eel to beat the two flounders caught by Skegness local Dave Bradley in the first round of the 2012 SPAC Knockout.
