NAC Kelling 31st March

Kim’s report :

16 anglers arrived Kelling the venue this week with the weather being warm and the sea fairly calm it was anyone’s guess as to what would be caught.

Before we even managed to get started a shout came that first aid was needed. Chris Palmer had managed to cut the back of his hand quite badly and could have been the end of his match before he had even started, after a bit of handholding he was back to it (any excuse for holding my hand).

No sooner had everyone chucked in at 7pm there were fish up amd down the beach lots of the dreaded pins but a few sizable too including several dogfish.

A call came down the beach of a large fish that was caught which turned out to be a 7.5lb thornback a rarity off the beach caught but Ian Gennery. Most of the carded fish were caught within the first hour and as the tide turned the fish went with it. Considering one of his fish scored him 350 points it was obvious who had won it with 2 fish for 9lb 4oz Ian Gennery took top spot. In second place with 3 fish for 4lb 10oz1/3 was David Lake. Final podium went to first timer Ben Barnes with 1 fish at 4lb 0 oz2/3.

The amount of dogfish caught along with pouting up to 37cm and the Thornie on a venue that is not renowned for these species in any great number I think we can all agree it was brilliant match with plenty of fish and lets hope this trend continues. stats: 34 fish caught between 16 anglers, 11 dogs biggest 74cm (Ben Barnes), 13 pouting biggest 37cm (Dene Conway), welcome also two new members Ben Barnes and Chris Palmer
