Angling: Grimsby's Nangle makes waves
THE whiting still seem to be ruling on the shore – with decent fish now appearing.
The Humber Bank Wall has produced the odd cod but not in great numbers.
East Halton is the best bet at the moment and fish up to 9lb have been landed so far, although Scott Richardson nearly had a good double, but it made its escape just before it was landed.
Humber Sea Angling Club were in action at the Woods last Sunday and everyone caught on what was a damp and cold night.

There was very little tide run and holding bottom was easy.
Even a codling came out to play – it was only 28cm, but a codling never the less.
There was a small turnout so only two places took the money.
Simon Drayton took first place with 14 fish for 8lb 4.5oz while Ady Cooper finished just behind him with 14 for 7lb 7oz.
Simon took both the biggest fish and biggest flat prize with a 43cm Whiting and a 35cm Dab respectively.
This weekend, the club are holding an open match on the Lincolnshire Coast.
This should be a good match with plenty of whiting coming off the Lincolnshire Coast.
The match is a penn points match so it may attract anglers from further afield as well as our local match anglers.
Meet at the Lookout pub between 10:30am and 11.30am. Fishing times are 12.30pm to 5.30pm. £15 all in, weight to measure.
North Shore Road was the venue for the latest Skegness Pier Angling Club (SPAC) match, with the first three anglers all weighing in double figures.
Top Grimsby angler Karl Nangle, pictured, was the winner of the A Smith Cup, with 14 whiting and 18 dabs weighing 14lb 15¼oz.
Karl also took the heaviest flatfish prize with a 14oz dab and shared the heaviest round fish award with a 1lb 1oz whiting.
Not far behind in second place was Alan Steadman, who increased his lead at the top of the SPAC aggregate points table with a 31-fish mixed bag for 13lb 9oz.
The next SPAC match will be held on Saturday, November 24, from 1pm to 5pm, at Winthorpe Avenue.
There is also an open section for non-members. For more information, contact Chas Tibble on 07984 967988.
