27 anglers arrived at Salthouse, with tonights match being a length only match it was decided to have two sections spreading the prize table a bit more, fishing to size limits pegging was left and right of the main drive.
Weather conditions were favorable and dry compared to previous weeks with a slight sea running we all hoped for the bass to play ball, and hopefully get into plenty of the winter species. It soon became apparant that as the tide ebbed there wasn’t much of a tide pull and the sizeable fish were scarce in numbers, with many catching undersized bass,dabs, whiting etc.
14 anglers were in section A to the left and out of these only 5 managed to find a sizeable fish, winning the section with 3 fish for 71cm was Dave Mathers, and second place went to Russell Taylor with 2 fish for 46cm. Section B had 13 anglers and out of these 7 caught ,with the overall winner removed from section results as is the norm, this gave Ian Childerhouse the section win with 2 fish for 67cm, and 2nd place went to Richard Hipperson with 65cm.
Heaviest flat of the night went to Leon Smith with a 33cm flounder and heaviest round was shared between Richard Hipperson and Ian Childerhouse both with a 42cm bass. From 27 anglers only 12 managed to find the sizeable fish with 25 being caught, well done to all who fished.
A tough night on the beach for the 19 anglers who braved the conditions, wind, rain, surf running and the dreaded weed, all made holding bottom and connecting with a fish very difficult. Out of the 19 only 7 managed to find a few fish. Top rod on the night was Alan Tew finding two bass for 2lb 6oz, second place went to Ian Wells with 5 fish for 2lb 2oz and final podium spot went to Ian Childerhouse with 5 fish for 1lb 14 2/3oz, heaviest round fish went to Alan Tew with a 39cm bass and heaviest flat went to Russell Taylor with a 24cm dab. All in all a very hard match with testing conditions so well done to everyone who fished and to those that stuck it out til the end. Next weeks match is back on the shingle and will be at Salthouse.

18 anglers attended the latest winter league match at Sheringham, a calm evening with a forecast for light rain, as some wanted to fish the promenade and some the shingle past the lifeboat station, it was decided to make this match a rover as long as you were pegged next to another angler for recording catches. As the match progressed it was difficult to gauge how everyone was doing being so spread out but as the results came in another good night was recorded. 33 sizeable fish were carded, again 6 anglers blanked but the 12 who did card had mixed bags with 17 bass, 7 flounders a few pout ,rockling,whiting and another cracking sole at 40cm. Top rod on the night was John Catchpole with 4 fish for 5lb 10 1/3oz 3 bass all over 40cm and a nice flounder at 31cm, 2nd place went to Nigel Spencer with 3 bass for 5lb 4 oz and final podium spot went to Andrew Bunn with 4 fish for 5lb 2 1/3oz, heaviest round was shared between the top 3 all with a bass of 46cm, heaviest flatfish was that cracking 40cm sole which fell to Nick Austen on his first ever sea angling trip. All in all a very enjoyable evening showing that the bass are still here in numbers and with te winter species starting to show it could be a great season, well done to all.
