NAC Report Monday 14th April
19 anglers attended tonight match at Salthouse the first time since the dreaded surge and storms that we have ventured onto this ve…nue, pegging was to the left of the car park and with a high tide around 7pm, north westerly winds and a good sea running everyone pitched up a bit further back from the sea in case of a rogue wave or two breaching the area. The sea looked perfect for a bass bonanza but with it being very early in the season no one was sure if they would oblige in any numbers, sadly as the match drew on it became apparent that the bass were not there and very little else apart from the pin whiting, micro codling, rockling and the odd undersize dab. It was difficult to hold bottom in the first hour but as the tide receded those that remained managed to fish, Andrew Turk was one of the first to catch and promptly set about winding up young Jake Cooper, who as usual took the banter extremely well and left 30 minutes before the end singing as he went and no doubt planning his next match with even more determination, keep going mate you will get there. Anyway back to the main event, top podium spot must go to Steve Smith who persevered and managed to record a very respectable 4 fish given the conditions , second place went to Andrew Turk with 3 fish , and finally new member Shaun Wright managed one dab to claim the final podium spot, only one other managed to card and that was Leon Smith who just missed out on the prize money and bragging rights.
Well done to all who fished in tough conditions and well done to the 4 who managed to find a fish or two sizeable.
Next weeks match was due to be Trimingham but has now been changed to Kelling, please book in early so we know how many to expect.
1: Steve Smith 30pts 2: Andrew Turk 29pts 3: Shaun Wright 28pts 4: Leon Smith 27pts
all others receive 5 pts
