NAC Match Report Trimmingham 3rd December 2018

Trimmingham 3/12/18

This week saw 12 anglers all on the same bait frozen blacks and bluey take to the Norfolk sand and with a stiff northerly blowing down the beach it wasn’t going to be a comfortable evening.

Low tide was around 10ish, fishing was to the right of the car park and the match started behind the revetments as the tide was being kept up with the wind and there was breaking waves as far as the head lights could reach.

It was a slow start to the fishing and it wasn’t until you could physically get on to the beach and get a lead out beyond the waves you managed to find some fish, to start with it was only the odd whiting and an occasional dab but as the tide dropped the double and treble shots started with at least one and if you was lucky two sizeable whiting with quite a few over the 30cm mark, if you was really lucky like Billy Rush you managed to find a 39cm which proved to be the biggest of the night.

I was on peg 12 and being kept busy trying to stay in front of Andrew Bunn on peg 11, at one point I was 100 pts ahead of him but eventually he found the fish and managed to catch up and over take me but his lead didn’t last for long as on the very next cast I managed a double shot of sizeable whiting to retake the lead, it would all come down to the last cast and with our bait only being out for 3 minutes it was time to reel in. With both of us eagerly waiting to see what came out of the water it was Andy’s rig that emerged fist, unfortunately for him he still only had his bait on his hooks, I on the other hand had found a 31 cm whiting to take the win with 16 fish for 5lb 11oz 2/3, still with a very respectable 13 fish for 5lb 2oz Andy managed 2nd place.

Further down the beach on pegs 3 and 5 another battle was going on between John Catchpole and Pete Simmonds for what turned out to be 3rd place, it was John who came out on top but only just with 13 fish for 4lb 13oz and only 2/3 oz behind Pete found 12 fish for 4lb 12oz 1/3 for 4th but he did manage to find a 27cm Dab to take biggest flat.
