With a weekend of North Westerly gales, the sea state was fairly rough and as we were due to be on the sand at Mundesley, a quick committee decision to change venue to the shingle proved to be the right choice.
Although Kelling the sea was still rough , on an ebbing tide it should have been easily fish-able, this was the case but some struggled with the waves, the weed was manageable albeit annoying as mixed in with the weed were lashings of razor fish meat, making cleaning it off your line all the more frustrating. With the fish obviously gorging themselves on razor meat, some resorted to tipping off with bits of razor straight off the weed.
As always Kelling proved to be an “If your on them” match, with some good patches and some very poor patches.
16 of us were out tonight, with pegging left and right of the gate, a very slow start compared to last weeks match here, but this can be the norm after a storm on the shingle.
Top rod on the night was Adrian Bordianu using his end peg to great advantage and finishing a country mile ahead of everyone else, with 26 fish for 10lb 5oz, running up in second place with 15 fish was Richard Hipperson with 15 fish for 6lb 4oz, Third place was a draw with Paul Thorburn and Russell Taylor both finding 9 fish for 3lb 8 2/3oz.
Heaviest Flat of the night went to Paul Thorburn with a cracking 30cm Dab and heaviest round fish went to Barry Iseton with a lovely 36cm whiting. In total 114 fish were carded for total weight pts of 2153
Although the fishing was hard at times with waves and weed causing problems, but these conditions can test your skills and can make you a better angler so well done to all who stuck it out.
Next weeks match is at Cley, please book in asap.
