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)
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


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.
