Monday 3rd October NAC league match Sheringham Boulevard

Monday 3rd October NAC league match Sheringham Boulevard
Another good turnout this week with 20 anglers with high expectations. With the sea roughed up a bit people were hoping for whiting , dabs and maybe a lucky bass and even a early cod if they were here yet.
As the match went on though it turned out to be a lot harder with a lot of red weed about and the attack of the flies. There were a few early bass caught unfortunately they were undersize Charlie coming close with 35cm and andy bunn with a 24cm flounder. In the end there were only 4 sizable fish caught all bass. Now onto the results pete hansell had 1 bass for 68points 1lb 6oz2/3 giving 4th place Richard chapman had 1 bass for 92points 1lb 14oz2/3 giving him 3rd Paul Rickard had the biggest bass of the evening 57cm giving him 174 points which was 3lb 10oz and 2nd place now on to the winner who never manages to catch here and snapping his rod at the start was Russell taylor who managed 2 bass for 214 points 4lb 7oz1/3 well done.

Cobblacre Roadside Lake OCT 2ND

Cobblacre Roadside Lake OCT 2ND
11 anglers tune up on a wet and blustery morning pegs were picked and we set of to the lake to get ready for the match. The wind started to drop and the sun came out. The anglers nearest the road had sun the whole day while those on the further bank were shaded and cold the whole time. Fishing was going to be difficult because of the amount of overnight rain. Eamonn Finch took top spot with a total of 9lb 6oz followed by Gavin Nichols with 8lb 10oz and third place went to Darren Black 5lb 11oz
Next match is at Cobbleacre Match Lake on Sunday 30th Oct

26th September NAC Report for Mundesley

26th September NAC Monday night league report from Mundesley

Another fantastic turnout with 22 anglers at Mundesley, expectations were not high, with flat calm conditions and crystal clear water, and to add to that you could see the weed close in, but everyone was still keen to get started, even the chairman managed to stay until nearly the end and on a sand venue that’s pretty impressive.

A few new faces tonight joining the NAC ranks, Steve Farrell, Stuart Gotts,and Ian Childerhouse who has fished the estuary league but first time out on a monday with us, welcome to you all.

As the match progressed surprisingly a lot of fish were being caught, with reports of bass, flounders, dabs,sole, couple of smooth hounds and a sprinkling of pin whiting. The match was fished to a length only format with everything over 18cm counting towards your end tally.

65 Fish were caught and returned these included some nice bass the biggest being 58cm.

Another relatively new member Ben Nicholson on peg 3 managed a nice sole at 31cm and a smutt pup at 31cm, but it was Stuart Gotts on his first day with us, who managed a podium spot with 5 fish for 170cm, knocking Billy Rush into 3rd place with 5 fish for 149cm including a 57cm bass, but in the last 30 or so minutes it was that man again Neil Haynes who pulled it out the bag with 6 fish for 202cm, including a cracking bass at 58cm the biggest of the night.

The match was close throughout with the majority managing to get over the 50cm mark, which at this time of the year can be difficult. Well done to all who fished.

Points raised on the evening: A fly fishing instructional day will be organized by Leon Smith and assisted by Richard Chapman, giving all club members who wish to learn the basics a chance to do so, and hopefully give us some knew skills to apply to bass fly fishing next season, every club member is welcome to attend, dates , times and pricing wiil be posted up as soon as possible.

Next weeks match was scheduled for the Old High, but this will now either be at Heacham ( if no weed and a few fish about) or Sheringham Boulevard to the left , confirmation will be posted on Saturday.

19th September 2016 NAC report Kelling

Match Report: No 3
19th September 2016
Venue: Kelling
Weather: Dry and overcast wind Northerly 7/10 mph
High tide circa 21:00 circa 4:00m
Water: Clear / 17.9 C (2.2 C above average)
Sunset:18:59
Moon phase: 94%
Predicted fishing: fair

Eighteen anglers plus Andy Bunn turned up to fish, full of hope and expectation. I was the first to head down to the shingle via the usual route to park as close to the gate as possible to save my energy for the fishing, to be greeted by the owner of the site who was waving at me from distance and being the gentleman that I am I politely waved back and carried on only to find out later that they were shooting along the road and Gibbo had failed to share this important information with me which I can only conclude as being an attempt to take me out of the running, nasty man!
Many first casts yielded fish up and down the beach which were mostly undersize filling us with what for most turned out to be false hope. Oddly there were a number of large mackerel that were taking worm baits which was unusual together with flounder dabs and too many tiny pin whiting. The crabs were also ever present no doubt encouraged by the warm water. However the saving grace for some of us was a flush of sizeable bass who showed after dark
Let’s hope this Northerly wind kicks in for a bit longer which should improve our chances for next week at Mundesley

NAC Report 12th September Bacton

Ok 2nd attempt at match report 12/09/16 winter NAC league….
It was a nice summers evening as 20 anglers from NAC pitched up to pity their wits against the bacton sand
The evening was very plesent smooth hounds dorsal fins showing foraging for some late female peelers, bass chasing the mackrel into the shallows and a pod of dolphins playing in the background to a majestic sunset….
Now for the reality… it was a stuggle as usual for most as it has been of late.
Water was clear apart from some weed when the tide pushed through after dark
Plenty of pin whiting and weevers making a show for themselves a few anglers did manage to card with the following results:
5th Richard Chapman 1 dab 24cm
Joint 4th Adrian Charlie Needham 1 dab 25cm and Gary Moore 1 flounder 25cm
3rd Simon Bone 2 flounder 29 and 28cm
2nd Leon Smith 1 dab 24cm and a billy bass 44cm
1st place showing it how it’s done is Will Sprules 2 flounder 27 and 25 cm, one sole 25cm one dab 24cm and another billy bass 40cm
Andrew Bunn did have a smoothie pup at 39cm but undersize maybe if he talked less to Russell Taylor he might of done better.

Well done to all that attended and let’s hope Kelling fairs better

NAC Report 5th September 2016 Old High

NAC WINTER LEAGUE, MATCH 1, 5/09/16 OLD HIGH

25 turned out for the first match of the new season. Was great to see so many anglers keen to get back into the competitive side off fishing with some new faces as well.
With the added incentive off the super pools this seasons with some big cash prizes up for grabs at the end of it, so keen was Pete Durkin to get fishing even the 6.15 train from Sheringham wasn’t going to stop him from getting on the beach nice and early.
The conditions where perfect for a nice pleasure fish on the beach, not so for a match, very mild, flat calm sea, crystal clear water and a touch off weed.
We all new it was going to be hard with most opting to fish close in with the hope off picking up some nice flounders.
Early on reports where coming in off small Bass being caught including myself with a 32cm. Couple off pegs down from me Leon managed a 20cm wrasse, sadly too small to card but nice to see they can be caught from our beaches.
Crabs where being a real pain, stripping baits within minutes, not just crabs as Billy Rush discovered as he pulled in a lobster just before the end.
2 and half hours in the chairman Dean James Gibson was getting bored ( to be honest he was bored within the first 20 minutes) and decided to take a walk, on his return the news was that Kimberley Lawn had had a nice 58cm bass with a couple off smaller ones coming out to other anglers, apart from that it was just the odd flounder here and there. Was looking like Kim was sitting pretty for the win until 10 mins from the end when both myself and Adrian Charlie Needham landed a 57 cm Bass each, unluckily for Kim, Charlie had allready carded a flounder giving him top honours with 4lb 4 2/3, Kim took 2nd spot with 3lb 12 2/3 and Russell end up with a jammy 3rd place with 3lb 10oz.

Trimingham March 7 2016

Trimingham 07/03/16

16 anglers arrived at Trimingham to a rather large sea. It was decided that in case there was a lot of tide pull that it would be a rover as long as you were close to someone to get your card signed. A few went for a hike to the left and some stayed right. From the start it there was no troublesome weed nor was the any tide pull so we were hopeful for some bigger fish. Unfortunately the fish didn’t come to play but there was a few undersize for some people. Towards the end of the match there was a bit more pull and a little weed. Once everyone had returned it was clear that it wasn’t an easy match and only one angler had manged to card and did so in style with 3 fish not just the one. Well done to Russell Taylor for winning with 3 fish for 14oz.
Next week we are at Kelling (meet at gate at 6) so if you are attending please let me know asap as well for bait as on my own next week.

Sheringham March 1 2016

A great turnout once again for Norfolk Angling Club with 20 anglers eager and keen to fish Sheringham promenade, not an easy venue to fish with previous matches giving plenty of blanks, but a great venue to learn scratching techniques and it can also throw up some surprises. Fishing a flooding tide up to high water, we pegged left and right up to and just past the lifeboat station, with 3 to 4 anglers per bay.

From the off we knew it would be a tough one but hoping for the odd flounder and a possible dog towards the end of the match.

Tactics varied but for those who have successfully caught at this venue would no doubt draw on experience and not fish at a massive distance as the fish can be very close in. Out of the 20 anglers who fished only 5 blanked which is a good result in itself, but top honors went to Dave Mathers clinching his first podium spot with 3 fish for 2lb 8 2/3oz, including a cracking flounder of 39cm closely followed by one of 31cm, when this large specimen came ashore it was very light and was debatable if it was indeed a plaice, however photos later in the evening showed it was a flounder, well done on a cracking catch.

2nd place went to Andy Andrew Turk who was up past the lifeboat station on a good area of this stretch and he managed to winkle out 4 fish for 1lb 6oz, finally 3rd place went to Simon Bone who also found a specimen for our coastline in the shape of a 38cm Coalfish and two others giving him 3 fish for 1lb 5oz.

A great match with the usual friendly banter and great to see newer members getting in the frame. Next weeks match is at Trimingham and is a pairs match, if you do not yet have a partner and wish to fish please let us know. Book in via the shop please.

A Committee meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday 9th March at the village in 7pm please let Simon Bone know if you have any issues to bring up or if you cannot make it.

Mundesley 22/02/2016

Mundesley 22/02/16 Bait Pack

10 anglers arrived at Mundesley expecting weed and slightly rough conditions. The weed wasn’t to bad and although for most there was a bit of tide pull there was only a few tangles that occurred. It was under the moonlight that the banter started as there was a distinct lack of fish. The match was started up on the prom but everyone was on the sand in the end. In total there was only 2 fish carded. Taking second place with a lucky last cast Slug was Kimberley Lawn for 2oz. Overall winner with the only other carded fish was Billy Rush also with a Rockling weighing it at a massive 2oz 2/3.

Although the fishing was a bit dull the company wasn’t and as always we had a bit of a laugh. Next week we are at the ever testing Sheringham. Book in on here or via the shop please.

Kelling 15/2/2016

Kelling 15/02/16

19 anglers arrived nice and early at the gates ready to go along with a few new faces that had travelled a fair old way for the match. There was a chilly Northerly wind and no rain predicted. How wrong that was, with a heavy rain shower shortly followed by a hail shower as well. The sea was rather rough and to begin with holding bottom wasn’t an issue but as the match wen on and the flood was well under way it became very difficult. Weed wasn’t too bad but was enough to stop the leader knot from going through and even managed to trapped other stuff (thanks Paul for removing whatever it was off my leader). The fishing wasn’t easy with most able to find a few undersize fish and even less being carded it wasn’t going to take much to win it. In third place with a grand total of 2 fish for 13oz1/3 was Big Pete. In joint first place was Russell and Simon both getting 1lb 2/3.

Next weeks match is at Mundesley. Meet at the car park at top of the main slip by the amusements and as always please book in on here or via the shop.
