NAC Match Report Overstrand 17th December 2018

NAC Report Overstrand 17/12/18

13 anglers arrived at Overstrand hoping that a possible codling may appear with reports of a few showing along the coast, if that failed then the usual whiting, dabs and flounders would be in abundance. A southerly wind and a mild evening with flat calm conditions what could possibly go wrong.

Pegging was from the zigzag groin to the left, by 6:30pm everyone was on their respective pegs and more or less ready to go. From the off fish were coming out many undersized with a few finding sizeable and others struggling. We fished the last hour of the ebb and the first of the flood, the majority of better fish came on the flood, everyone managed to card at least one fish but the overall expectations were not what we expected, with the whiting fest not appearing.

Top rod on the night was again Peter Simmonds with 9 fish from peg 2 for 3lb 9 1/3oz, 2nd place went to Paul Grothier with 7 fish from peg 13 for 3lb 2oz, and final podium spot went to the ever consistent Russell Taylor with 8 fish from peg 3 for 2lb 14oz. Biggest flat of the night went to Roger Cunnington with a 30cm flounder and heaviest round went to Peter Simmonds with a 36cm whiting. All in all an enjoyable evening with some great banter before and after as always.

Next match is in the new year at Kelling on the 7th.
