NAC Report Salthouse 24 September 2018

Booked in we had 32 anglers, but due to work and vehicle issues 4 sadly couldnt attend at the last minute, so with a fantastic turnout we still had 28 anglers on the beach, pegging was left and right of the road. As always the weather men had it wrong as the strong NW wind was more like a slight breeze, but the wind from the day had certainly put a good swell on which made it difficult for many, weed was also prevelant and a few pegs struggled with snags.

Salthouse or “shitehouse” as it is sometimes known can be an amazing venue but it can also provide some gruelling scratchy matches and this was the case tonight with only 8 out of the 28 managing to find a fish. Tonights match was a length only match so every centermetre over 18cm would count to your final tally with all fish being returned as per normal.

Top rod on the night was Peter Simmonds taking full advantage of his end peg to the right managing to scratch out 3 fish for 75cm including a bass at 36cm
Second place went to Russell Taylor with 2 fish for 56cm including a cracking dab of 31cm, final podium spot went to Dene Conway winkling out a rockling early on and then a last cast dab giving him a total of 42cm.

A very tough night for all with some packing up and calling it a night before the end but September is renowned for being a tough month, on a plus note things can only get better, well done to all who attended.

Next weeks match is at Overstrand, and so far the sand venues have certainly been fishing better than the shingle, lets hope this one produces some better bags. Please book in as early as you can especially with bait orders and if you can get to the shop to pick your bait it it would be a great help, those who can’t I will bring baits as per normal.
