Monday 9th January Trimingham to Kelling
Another match on the sand at Trimingham we have had to reschedule due to rafts of red weed on the days leading up to the match, a quick change saw us heading to Kelling, which is probably one of the most productive and consistent beaches our coastline has to offer.
18 anglers were booked in but only 15 made it through the rain and wind and through the gates at Kelling pegging was in front of the cliffs as per the last match and it wou…ld be interesting to se if the hotspots were again up to the left of carpark.
The match started slowly and for many very frustrating with the usual undersized fish coming in, in triplicate, two hours of this and the fish started to play ball, with many carding in the last one and half hours, but some managed to plug away the odd sizeable one throughout the night, even Dean Gibson the chairman was catching fish from the first cast which is an unusual but pleasant sight.
With tonight’s pegging done by Luke Lukeyboy Childerhouse being one of the younger fitter members, he managed to miss a peg out, which funnily would have been his dad Ian’s peg, so a walk back along the beach was needed by Ian to find a spot, needless to say Ian wanted to thrash his boy for this misdemeanor and prove no matter how far I have to walk I will beat you….And he did! as it was Ian Childerhouse taking this week’s top rod honors with 16 fish for 6lbs 1 1/3oz, second place went to the ever consistent Leon Smith with 13 fish for 4lb 5 1/3oz and final podium spot went to Simon Bone with 11 fish for 4lb 1 2/3oz.
A hard night fishing but again enjoyable with some great banter, I think experiencing the different conditions mother nature can throw at us can only make for a better understanding of what the fish may or may not be doing and inevitably make us all better anglers.
Well done to everyone next week’s match is scheduled for Sheringham, BUT if the weed clears we may try and get down to a sand venue as we have now missed two.
