Weybourne 6th January Report

The first match of the 2014 season took place at Weybourne on the 6th January, 20 anglers were spread out from the pipe towards the wreck, fishing was fast and furious with loads of undersize pin whiting and dabs, fishing to size limits it was going to be a struggle to find the sizeable fish before the ferocious pins did their suicidal attacks on your bait. With the wind over our left shoulders it was fairly comfortable fishing and with a flooding tide and flat calm conditions expectations of a few good whiting and possibly even a codling.

As the match progressed it looked like everyone was registering fish and anyone could be in with a chance of success, at the end of the match it was Richard Chapman registering his first ever podium spot with a great performance from peg 3 with 10 fish for 3lb 1oz, 2nd spot went to young Henry Randell from peg 15 with 7 fish for 2lb 11 1/3oz and finally 3rd place to David Lake on peg 17 also with 7 fish 2lb 6 2/3oz, a few hefts were also reported along the stretch but nothing too serious, still a small amount of weed coming in on the leader knots, and some nice sized rockling also showing. Trevor Barnes did manage a cracking whiting of 38cm and several others were also caught above the 30cm mark along with some good sized dabs of 29cm+.
All in all a very enjoyable evening and shows that the newly formed Norfolk Angling Club is the place to be to learn, compete and socialize, remember everyone is welcome to come along, help and advice is always given for those that require it. Next match is at Salthouse next Monday evening and we will be having a short meeting before the match to discuss extra weekend matches and venues please try to be there.
