NAC Match Report Bacton 28th January 2019


With windy and cold conditions, the match was moved from Bacton to Weybourne, 9 brave and hardened anglers with no common sense what so ever, set out to Weybourne for the last match of this part of the season, and it soon became apparent that it was going to be a hard night. 8 fish were carded, 3 of these falling to the rod of Matt Lawes , for a combine weight of 13 1/3oz, he also bagged a 27cm whiting for the largest round, and a 24cm dab for the largest flat, earning him top rod and the clean sweep. 2nd was Paul Grothier with 2 fish haul and combined 8oz, joint 3rd Russell Taylor and John Catchpole with a 1 fish haul and 23cm dab each. The final fish fell to Peter Simmonds with a targeted 24cm Rockling.

NAC Match Report Weybourne 14th January 2019

NAC Report 14th January 2019 Weybourne

A smaller turnout than normal saw 12 anglers compete at Weybourne, after a decision was made to move the fixture from Mundesley.

Conditions looked OK but with the recent days rough up it would either fish well, or terrible, sadly it was the latter with the winning bag only being 3 sizeable fish.A total of 13 sizeable fish were caught over the 3 hours, and it was noticeable the lack of fish in general with not as many undersized as previous weeks.

Onto the results top rod on the day was John Catchpole with 3 fish for 15 1/3oz, 2nd place went to Keith Shaul with 2 fish for 11 1/3oz and with ten minutes to go 3rd spot went to Paul Thorburn with 2 fish 10oz. A proper grueller of a match and you did well if you saved the blank.

Heaviest round went to Keith Shaul with a whiting of 30cm and heaviest flat went to Paul Thorburn with a 26cm dab.

Next weeks match is at Cley please book in early.

NAC Match Report Kelling 7th January 2019

NAC Report Kelling 7-1-19

With the holiday season now over, many were keen to get back on the beaches and a good turnout of 19 arrived at Kelling eager and ready to get started, the forecast for the evening was strong WSW winds turning W and then eventually WNW, luckily the wind changed for the worse long after we had finished the match, making the night easily fishable albeit a tad uncomfortable if you didnt bring your shelter. Pegging was again left and right of the car park.

Fish were coming in from the off with some good sized whiting and dabs making an early appearance, along with the odd flounder and pouting. High tide was at 7.21pm so we were fishing just over the top, slack and then the first of the ebb. Big bows in line was one of the issues as the Westerly wind blew line down to the right on each cast, but most managed to steer away from tangling up with the angler to their right.

Top rod on the night went to Andrew Bunn with 20 sizable fish 6lb 15 1/3oz fishing on peg 9, second podium spot went to Dene Conway with 18 fish for 6lb 7 1/3oz fishing from peg 2, and final podium spot went to Keith Shaul with 16 fish for 5lb 15oz fishing from peg 15.

Heaviest flat of the night went to Paul Thorburn with a nice dab of 29cm and heaviest round fish was shared between Keith Shaul , Billy Rush and Dene Conway all with a 34cm whiting.

Lots of good sized fish came out and the majority in prime healthy condition, this can only bode well for the upcoming matches as the winter league draws to a close.

A total of 196 sizable fish were caught , but you can probably double that with the undersized about aswell.

Well done to everyone who fished, next weeks match is at Mundesley please book in asap once post has been put up.
