NAC Match Report Gt Yarmouth North 23rd May 2022

Nathan takes Gt Yarmouth North beach with a 92cm Smooth hound

The afternoon Gus Report showed a gin clear sea, no weed, weather excellent 14:04pm with the comment (clever dog!) “Like a mill pond, see what happens later” so I guess expectations were high as each angler prepared their tackle at home ready for a trip to Gt Yarmouth North Beach. Little did we know, by the time we gathered the squalls had arrived, and everything became a little soggy to say the least.

We welcomed new members Gary and Mel Alexander  who arrived in the middle of a really heavy squall, with little time for introductions and welcome. Nathan volunteered his services to show them the ropes. With the board walk providing direct access to the beach, we pegged either side of the board walk hopefully reducing walking distance for all. So, in the tail end of the squall, we prepared to cast off at 6:45pm, fishing to length with hopefully a few doggies over 38cm or smooth hounds over 51cm making an appearance.

As the squall subsided, everyone made their initial casts, immediately finding that the tide was taking the trace and when that trace was retrieved it was very vegetarian (lots of weed). The “GusOmeter” was wrong cloudy/weedy/strong tide. Then weather began to lift, and we could see the wind farm and quite an impressive rainbow – see photograph.  The older hands mooted that fish would appear once the tide had ebbed further. And so, it happened fish started to appear, and the weed started to drop off.

Target for the night was hopefully Dog Fish and Smooth Hounds, and as the tide ebbed the first doggies started to be caught with a few sizeable Smooth Hounds. By the end of the night 107 fish of size caught and average of 6 fish per angler with no one blanking – well done Gary & Mel (pegs 2 & 3) on your first match. In summary we picked up 20 Dog Fish of various sizes, 2 Smooth Hounds, 80 Whiting – some of a decent size 35cm plus fell to John Harvey. But the biggest Smooth Hound of the night went to Nathan (peg 1) with a 92 cm specimen, just pipping Jamie Childerhouse with an 82 cm on his last cast (peg 20). A special mention to Michael Craske in picking up a 26cm Dab.

A fine night’s fishing (in the end) was spoiled by a cloud burst as everyone was packing up and results were being compiled, so well done all who fished and fought their way through the weed, and finally the rain. See you all next week at Salthouse, lets hope the weather behaves itself.

NAC Match 15 Kelling 16th May 2022

NAC Match Report Kelling 16th May 2022

John Harvey takes Kelling, but Cain nearly gets a clean sweep

With Smooth Hounds and Bass making an appearance at the Bass Festival 14 – 15th May, it was an excited 19 anglers who turned up at Weybourne for tonight’s match. But so had half of Norfolk decided to take advantage of a beautiful evening and so mess up our opportunity to get 19 pegs on the beach without walking all the way to Kelling. So, without further to do venue was quickly changed to Kelling via the Collection. We were joined by Alin Hantig and Michael Craske for their first match, and Max Goodchild returning for his second match, welcome guys hope you enjoy the evening. With the tide peaking at 19:27pm and the last minute switch of venue we decided to kick off at 7:00pm. Pegging either side of the car park path the stage was set……..see photo of the sunset.

As soon as lines were in the water the bites started coming with Andrew Turk (peg 19) and Simon Bottomley (peg 18) picking up Pouting, quickly followed by Hounds arriving (to certain pegs!). But the highlight of this initial flurry of activity was a magnificent Bass caught be Richard Craske (peg 16) –  see photo. Weighing in at an impressive 65cm, 260 weight points (5lb 7/16oz) 6.5lb on the scales. This was quickly followed by John Harvey (peg 17) picking up 76cm Smooth Hound. The Hounds kept coming with Cain Plumb (peg 8) picking up the biggest Hound of the night with a magnificent 88cm specimen, just pipping another Hound from John Harvey of 86cm. With his usual consistent catch record Nathan Drewery picked up 3 hounds between 51 – 76 cm. In summary 12 Smooth Hounds caught (see summary), congratulations also to Ian and Jamie Childerhouse (family hounds pegs 2 & 10) and Eamon Finch (1). Also well done to Michael Craske who opens his NAC account with an impressive 59cm Dog. Woof woof all. !   

The lasting impression of the night goes to Richard Craske with his Bass, who’s photo makes him the new poster boy for NAC. It’s a sorry state of affairs that even with such an impressive fish that he did not get even a Top 3 position, managing 4th. Well done John Harvey for an excellent result, clearly showing how its done. Whilst last week’s winner Cain Plumb on his favourite beach ( Ha Ha ) picked up a decent 2nd position, but picking up biggest flat/round at the same time, and not forgetting lucky peg…..nearly, but not quite a clean sweep. It’s starting to become quite a tussle in the last matches of the league between John/Nathan/Cain and not forgetting Ian Childerhouse and John Spalton. However, John Harvey’s 1st place does come with some reward, the NAC Eamon Finch Monday night trophy (see photo) ……which he’s allowed to keep for 1 week ! (thanks Eamon) … who will win in next week ?

Match Result:

1st          John Harvey                                  peg 17                11 fish                             896 weight points (18bs 11/16oz)

NAC Match 14 Summer League Gt. Yarmouth (South Beach) 9th May 2022

NAC Match Report Gt Yarmouth (South Beach) 9th May 2022

Cain signals his return to NAC fishing with an impressive match win at Gt Yarmouth.

Great Yarmouth as a venue is a bit like marmite, you either love it or hate it, whilst it has been known to throw up big catches it can be snaggy and is very dependent on your peg. So it was with some trepidation that the pegs were drawn with the “short walkers” taking pegs close to the Travel Inn beach passage way with the lower numbered pegs towards the pleasure beach. Numbers fishing at Great Yarmouth can be a bit erratic so it was great to see 14 anglers booked in and fishing the venue, especially with the price of fuel! A special welcome back to the NAC of Norfolk’s own star rod builder Cain Plumb.

With everyone ready to hit the beach early we called a 6:30pm start as with an ebbing tide (LT 22:23pm) we wanted to take advantage of the deeper water. As usual fishing to size – see species and number of fish and their size limits chart. Tide was pulling towards the pleasure beach end with the southerly wind adding to conditions. The big hitters (casting) started to pick up good size whiting 30+cm and started to put fish on their cards, and with some early Dog Fish and Smooth Hounds it was looking to be one of those nights. It was clear early on that the action was at either ends of the beach, see catch summary/peg chart.

In total 111 fish caught, giving an average of 8 fish/angler, with 6 separate species caught. Despite the lateness in the year, we are still seeing sizeable whiting carded. In total 94 caught and carded, the biggest of 35cm being carded by John Spalton (peg 2). Along with the whiting, 3 Dabs, 5 Dog Fish, 7 Smooth Hounds of which a 92cm specimen caught by Cain Plumb (peg 13) picking up biggest round of the night, 1 Ray and a 30cm Flounder, giving John Harvey (peg 4) biggest flat fish of the night. The best fish photo of the night goes to Roger Cunnington’s under sized ray.

But the story of the night goes to the winning return of Cain Plumb (peg 13) to NAC Monday night fishing, whilst only catching 5 fish he amassed 1028 weight points (21lb 7/16oz). Clearly sizes matter !. 2nd place fell to Roger Cunnington (peg 3) who picked up 484 weight points, and was unlucky with his ray. Whilst 3rd place fell to John Spalton (peg 2)  with 400 weight points helped by some impressive size whiting, that helped his bad back. A cracking nights fish with no one blanking and an average of 8 fish per angler. But the results speak for themselves…..well done Cain.

Match Result:

1st          Cain Plumb                                    peg 13                5 fish                               1028 weight points (21bs 7/16oz)

2nd         Roger Cunnington                        peg 3                  15 fish                             484 weight points (10lbs 1/16oz)

NAC Summer League Match Bacton 2nd May 2022

NAC Match Report Bacton 2nd May 2022

John Harvey bags up at Bacton, stopping Nathan picking up a match treble.  

After last week’s disappointing fish show at Cart Gap last week there was optimism in the air for the Bank Holiday Bacton match. With the early afternoon weather report from Gus looking favourable, fingers or paws crossed, it was looking good. As expected, a lot of anglers turned up early so the pressure was on for an early start. 17 anglers assembled for the match (missed Steve Medlar due to COVID) with Max Goodchild joining us for his first match, welcome aboard. Just a reminder that match numbers are confirmed Monday am by match admin, so please flag “going” on Facebook by Sunday night. We need to know names and numbers for angling insurance purposes. Pegs were drawn promptly at 6:00pm followed by a stampede to hit the beach. As there was a number of pleasure anglers on the beach we pegged towards the gas terminal.

As usual we were fishing to size and with a flood tide (HT 20:24) we all cast in hope that last week’s poor showing wasn’t on the cards. As the tide started to come in the early signs were good with some decent Whiting for the long casters, followed by a show of dog fish, and a Smooth Hound. The fish continued to be carded with Nathan fishing on peg 6 picking up the biggest flat 28cm Dab and he biggest round of 60cm for a Dog fish. In total 97 fish caught, no blanks with a fish/angler ration of 6 fish …….6 times more than last week at Cart Gap. Must have been all those extra orders of crabs/rag worm from Dene !. Look out for AJ’s photos later on Facebook……..seems to have spent the night taking photos instead of dangling …….hopefully they’ve all caught our better fish and casting actions

Match winner was John Harvey (peg 9) with a 14 fish to his card including a 55cm Smooth Hound, and total weight points of 280. Just pipping Nathan Drewery (peg 6) by 4 weight points (276) 1/16th of an oz and stopping him getting the match treble, with Marc Lawson (peg 4) picking up 3rd position with 252 weight points (peg 4) including 3 dog fish.

Match Result:

1st          John Harvey                                               peg 9                             14 fish               280 weight points (5lbs 13/16oz)

NAC Summer League Match 12 25th April Cart Gap

The one where Neil finds a new friend and Nathan nudges Cart Gap  

Nice to be back to the beaches of Norfolk, East coast of Scotland spectacular and trout rivers OK but they can’t beat a breezy Cart Gap on a Monday night. 14 gathered to fish, and we welcomed Robert Ford as a first timer to the NAC. There had been a bit of discussion in the week re best venue for fishing an ebb tide, so we shifted from Sea Palling to Cart Gap, fingers crossed. The early weather/tide report from Gus (see photo) suggested a good Bass beach with lots of small breakers, but the older hands (you know who you are) cautioned the optimism when there was a North Easterly wind blowing. Would they be right ?

We pegged either side of the jetty to save the longer walk. Early signs were good with Allan Sexton  (peg 6) a welcome return, picked up a 38cm Bass on his first cast. Eamon (peg 10) then proceeded to pick up a 24cm Dab followed by a 28cm Dab. But then it went all flat. Neil Rowe (peg 7) then met his new friend with a young seal (see photo) deciding to watch the match from a peg 7 viewpoint. That finished Neils night.

The tide continued to ebb, and chances of more fish seemed to disappear with the tide. So, the oldies were right. But there were some notable exceptions with John Harvey (peg 1) picking up biggest flat with a magnificent 35cm Flounder, whilst Mr Consistent Ian Childerhouse (peg 14) picked up the biggest round with a 41cm Bass. But the night was nudged by Nathan Drewery (peg 5) picking up 3 fish for 101 weight points who decided to wade out to Belgium to find the fish. The tide was so low it was no more than wellie depth 30yds out.

Match Result:

1st          Nathan Drewey                                         peg 5                             3 fish   101 weight points (2lbs 2/16oz)

2nd         Ian Childerhouse                                        peg 14                       2 fish   90 weight points (1lbs 14/16oz)

3rd         John Harvey                                               peg 1                              3 fish   82 weight points (1lbs 11/160z)

Match average                                                        1 (was 12 fish last week) / angler

Biggest round                 41cm Bass                       Ian Childerhouse (peg 14)  

Biggest Flat                     35cm Flounder               John Harvey (peg 1)

Lucky peg                        Eamon Finch (peg 10)

Next week’s match will be on the sands of Becton HT 20:29 – fishing the flood

NAC Summer League Match 9 Salthouse

NAC Match Report Salthouse 4th April 2022

Simon B enjoys his birthday in style on the shingle of Salthouse  

After last week’s poor showing on the sands of Walcott it was hoped that a return to the shingle of Salthouse (last fished January 2022) produce some decent fish.  16 anglers met by the roadside parking allegedly upsetting a few tourists and NT wardens along the way due to the lack of formal parking. The wind was blowing a “hoolie” but it was hoped that the shingle banks would afford some protection, they didn’t !. Big thanks for all your birthday wishes (Simon).

Pegs were drawn at 6:00pm with pegs counting down from opposite the car parking area, still tough for the “short walkers.” It’s not an easy fishing beach walking on the expanse of shingle. With a kick off time of 7:00pm everyone made their preparations for a blustery/weedy night. Use this link => Salthouse | Search Results | Norfolk Angling Club to access previous Salthouse match reports.

The tide was to peak at 21:24pm but the tide was racing and expected to be a high one. As the first casts were retrieved it confirmed our earlier thoughts that there would be a lot of frustration with weed, tide pulling to the right coupled with wee Whiting.  The early retrievers started to pick up the typical 24 – 26cm Whiting, a few centimetres more and they could have been carded. Neil Rowe (peg 1) pulled in the first carded fish, so match on. Despite early catches it was tough in the tide with birthday boy loosing 2 leaders and tracers in the surf. Then the wind started to ease a little as the tide came in, and so did the fish.

The move from the sands of Walcott to the shingle of Salthouse proved a wise venue choice with the average number of fish per angler rising from 1.6 average last week to this week’s 4.3 fish average. In total at end of the night 69 fish carded compared to 23 fish last week. Of the 69 fish caught 55/69 were Whiting the biggest being 32cm carded by Leon Smith (peg 5) and Stephen Medlar (peg 12). The biggest round was a 55cm Dog caught by birthday boy Simon Bottomley (peg 2) narrowly edging Nathan Drewery’s (peg 6) 54cm for biggest round (“makes a change”) – see photo provided by Andy Turk (peg 2). The biggest flat was carded by Ian Childerhouse (peg 14) catching a 30cm Flounder (1/69). See images for full breakdown of fish caught.

Match Result:

1st          Simon Bottomley                                      peg 3                            7 fish    170 weight points (3lbs 9/16oz)

2nd         Stephen Medlar                                         peg 12                       8 fish    156 weight points (3lbs 4/16oz)

3rd         Ian Childerhouse                                       peg 14                       8 fish    152 weight points (3lbs 3/160z)

Match average                                                        4.3 (was 1.6 fish last week) / angler

Biggest round                 55 cm Dog                       Simon Bottomley (peg 3)  

Biggest Flat                     30cm Flounder               Ian Childerhouse (peg 14)

Lucky peg                        Ian Childerhouse (peg 14)

Next week’s match will be on the shingle at Weybourne. HT 15:47 – fishing the flood LT 22:35. Nathan / John S will be the bait/organising committee. See you the following week……..thanks  Simon

NAC Match 8 Walcott 28th March 2022

NAC Match Report Walcott 28th March 2022

The one where Andrew T “walks the dog” winning at Walcott  

Last week’s spring sunshine saw many club members pleasure fish and get in a bit of practice on the many beaches in North Norfolk hoping for comparable results at tonight’s match at Walcott and back on sand. Expectation was a sunny evening’s fishing with plenty of fish. But what greeted those waiting in Walcott was sea mist/fog with winter like temperatures and a SE breeze. But despite the inclement weather 14 anglers booked into to fish. At this point it’s worth mentioning those tucked up in their beds with COVID and fishing via WhatsApp messages, virtually – get well soon Jaimee/Marc.

With the tide ebbing (HT 16:46pm) we drew pegs for left and right of the slipway and with everyone ready for a 6:30pm start we hit the beach. The weather hadn’t improved when we set up, but all were still hopeful of good catches. In the gloom we saw Colin Bailey (peg 7) pick up a 50cm+ Dog fish, followed fairly quickly by Leon Smith (peg 6) picking up also a Dog fish (went on to catch another – see photo), 1 cm bigger. Further down the beach Andrew Turk on lucky for some peg 13 also picking up a 61cm Dog, a nice 89 pointer ! . John Spalton fishing on (peg 1) seems to have had a close encounter of the third kind talking to Walcott’s famous star gazer, must have upset his fishing mojo – see John’s WhatsApp post. In an X File moment, he was mistaken for Patrick Moore. Sad but this was one of the highlights of the evening.

When the final check of the fish haul the numbers were low, 1.6 fish per peg average. In total twenty-three fish carded of which 6/23 were Dogs with the biggest one of 61cm shared between Andrew Turk (peg 13) and Simon Bottomley (peg 5), 14/23 were Whiting with the biggest one being 33cm (well done Andrew Turk) and the remainder being 3/23 rockling. But no flat fish caught !. Well done all who fished in not the best conditions (weather and fish). See you next match, fingers crossed. Note: AJ earned special bonus weight points for bringing delicious homemade doughnuts, just a thought ?.

Match Result:

1st          Andrew Turk                                              peg 13                       5 fish    162 weight points (3lbs 6/16oz)

2nd         Leon Smith                                                 peg 6                            4 fish    144 weight points (3lb)

3rd         Stephen Medlar                                         peg 10                       3 fish    96 weight points (2lb)

Match average                                                        1.6 (was 4.5 fish last week) / angler

Biggest round                 61cm Dog          Andrew Turk (peg 13) and Simon Bottomley (peg 5)  

Biggest Flat                     None carded

Lucky peg                        Leon Smith (peg 6)

Next week’s match will be back to the shingle at Salthouse . HT 21:24 – fishing the flood.

NAC Match Report Kelling 21st March 2022

NAC Match Report Kelling 21st March 2022 (Pairs Match)

John Catchpole and Eamon Finch take the Pairs match at Kelling and Nathan Drewery retains the individual Joc Goudie Matchman Trophy  

With the early spring sunshine starting the week and planned for the rest of the week there was a spring like excitement to be back at Kelling, home of many excellent big catch matches.

  • Would ‘Dogs’ make an appearance ?.
  • Would we see the last of the wee Whiting ?.
  • Would Bass appear ?.
  • Or would we see more Rockling and Pout ?.

With 16 booked in, but a late call off from AJ dropped the numbers to 15 planned for the match. Thanks , AJ for keeping in touch via the WhatsApp. So, with 15 planned it meant that we had an odd number for a pairs match. It was good to see Hitesh fishing again after the winter, and a big welcome to first “NAC” timer Katie Hills. Great to see you both, as pairs a good format to get you started and learn from your partner.

With everyone assembled we held the peg draw. John Spalton (or team Spalton) accepted the single peg, and there were some interesting combinations. Hitesh paired with Jaime Childerhouse. Katie paired with Andy Turk. With a cast off time planned for 7:00pm the pairings discussed strategies, who would cast long, short or as is usual let’s see what we catch. With WhatsApp chatter through the week, it felt doable to be a fish to size match.

Fishing a 20:26pm high tide we started to see early wee Whiting and Dabs. But soon all started to hit their stride with cardable fish presenting themselves to the pairs. Firstly a few over 27cm + Whiting then Dabs. Then to make it more interesting occasional pairs started to pick up Dog Fish. Great to see them back, always a challenge. Despite moans that not finding cardable fish the pairing of JC and Eamon (peg 2) picked up a few Dogs. Of the overall 68 fish carded 7 Dogs caught ranging in size from 53cm to 61cm with Jamie Childerhouse (peg 7) picking up a 61cm specimen winning the biggest round, with Nathan Drewery close behind him with a 60cm Dog.
