NAC Match Report Sheringham 30th September 2019

NAC Report Monday 30th September 2019 Sheringham

With flood warnings in place and a tidal surge predicted at Cley and various other venues it was decided to opt for a safer venue so we could continue with the match without fear of being cut off, so Sheringham along the promenade was chosen, the weather forecast had predicted persistent rain from about 4pm but as always this came later, we had just enough time to get setup before it came and stayed all night.

Weed in close caused a few issues as the tide pushed in but those that managed to keep their rods up high and their line out of the surf started to catch a few fish.

In total 30 fish were carded between 9 anglers who found the fish, sadly 6 blanked, but with weather conditions the way they were 15 was still a good turnout so well done to all.

The conditions were almost perfect for bass with a fair swell running, the aim would be to cast towards the end of the groins and hope for one or two. We were not disappointed with 20 out of the 30 fish caught being bass, several flounder, the odd eel, and one or two pout and whiting.

This was a length only match so different tactics can pay off, Luke Lukeyboy Childerhouse was top rod this week with 4 fish for 169cm his catch included an eel and 3 bass the biggest of which was 51cm, second podium spot went to Andrew Bunn also with 4 fish for 152cm from a flounder and 3 bass with the biggest being 53cm, final podium spot and first time for new member Nigel Spencer who also had 4 fish for 137cm with 4 bass. Heaviest round fish of the night went to Andrew Bunn with his 53cm bass and heaviest flatfish went to Dene Conway with a 35cm flounder.

Cley next the sea

NAC Match Report Sea Palling 23rd September 2019

17 anglers made the journey down to Sea Palling for the latest NAC match, as always with this venue it was a rover as long as you fished near another member for signing of the card etc, many of the club members have never fished this venue before so it would be interesting to see what came on the score cards.

With rain forecast for later in the evening we all hoped it would not be torrential as the majority had not bothered to bring a shelter as is the norm on the sand venues. From the off we were plagued by tiny pin whiting not even reaching 18cm especially in the center parts of the bays, but this venue can always throw up some surprises and good sized bass, and flounders are often caught.

Top rod on the night was Ian Wells fishing to the left with 4 fish for 3lb 2 1/3oz, 2nd place and first time on the podium was Emma Princess Roberts thrashing her husband Chris yet again, with 3 fish for 2lb 1oz, third place went to Chick Roper with 2 fish for 1lb 8 2/3oz, heaviest round went to Andrew Bunn with a 37cm bass and Heaviest flatfish went to Dene Conway with a cracking 34cm flounder, sadly 6 of the 17 failed to catch but that’s fishing, next week we are back on the shingle at Cley.

NAC Match Report Cart Gap 16th September 2019

Cart Gap was this weeks venue, with a great turnout of 29 anglers, pegging was to the right of the slipway as fishing over high tide the revetments to the left would have made for impossible fishing. It was decided to mix things up a little tonight with 2 sections so a few more prizes to be won. Firstly welcome to all new members and it was great to see some old members back on the beach as well.

Weed was a problem for many but some pegs struggled all the way through and others only towards the end of the match, we had been warned that some bays were fairly snaggy but everyone hoped we would avoid the snags. The wind was minimal and the evening provided us with a lovely sunset and a beautiful full moon. For the most part fishing was hard and with so many of us fishing its difficult to report individual activity throughout the match, well done to everyone for sticking it out.

Top rod on the night overall was Barry Iseton who in the dying hour found a cracking thorn back ray at 4lb 7 2/3oz to go with his eel, giving him a total weight of 5Lb, well done Barry.

Because of two sections the overall winner was taken out of the section prizes, Section A 1st place went to Luke Lukeyboy Childerhouse showing he hasn’t lost his touch, carding 6 fish for 4lb 10oz, second place went to Clive Parker with 2 fish including a lovely 56cm bass for a total weight of 4lb 1 2/3oz. Section B saw a father & son double act, Ian Childerhouse take first place with 5 fish for 3lb 10 2/3oz and second place went to Andrew Bunn with 4 fish for 2lb 8 2/3oz. Heaviest flat fish went to John Catchpole with a sole 30cm and heaviest round fish went to Barry Iseton with his ray.

Overall positions for league points are as follows.

Barry Iseton 240 30pts +5 pts

Luke Lukeyboy Childerhouse 222 29pts
