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.
