NAC Report 25th November South Beach Yarmouth
As always with the further afield matches numbers were a bit down, 15 booked in but only 13 managed to make it for various reasons. Fishing over high water we pegged left and right in between the pleasure park and premier inn. Not a long walk and fairly comfortable fishing if you like sand getting into places you never knew you had places.
Anyway onto the match for most from the off the fish were there but the majority were undersized with many whiting coming enticingly close to 27cm and the same with the dabs, trying to find the better sized fish in amongst the hoards of kamikaze tings did make for hard work, but everyone did manage to find at least one. Andrew Turk also managed a bass close in but again under the size limit. in the end 48 sizeable fish were recorded but you could probably triple that with the small ones. Again the start of the match we set up in a light drizzle and a slight chop on the sea, but luckily the rain eased off and this made for a a tough but enjoyable evening.
Top rod on the night was Ian Childerhouse with 7 fish for 2lb 4 1/3oz, joint second place was Dene Conway & John Harvey both with 6 fish for 2lb dead, which meant 4th place went to Simon Bottomley with 5 fish for 1lb 12 2/3oz.
Heaviest flat was Ian Childerhouse with a 27cm dab and heaviest round was shared between Neil Rowe & Nathan Drewery both with a 32cm whiting. Onto the filling out of cards correctly, please make sure you get your card signed off at the end of the match and weight converted, if unsure please ask, in the club we are not strict but we want everyone to get into the habit of this because if you fish a bigger open you could easily be disqualified, this also helps us at the end of the match getting the results done quickly, if unsure please ask we are here to help.
Next weeks match is at Weybourne please book in once post has been done in Facebook group.

Cley/Sea Palling 18/11/19
This mondays match was scheduled for Cley but due to the wind direction creating quite a swell on the shingle beaches it was decided to move the match to Sea Palling as we had only fished this beach on an ebb tide and was keen to find out how it fished on the flood, also the lagoons should provide a bit of shelter from the on coming waves giving everybody a better chance of finding and recording some fish.
Once at our usual parking spot it soon became clear that we would not be able to fish, as with 4 hours before high the water was allready up against the rocks so we moved down to the slip way and 12 of us fished to the left.
The match was allready scheduled to be a length only but not knowing how it would fish we decided to make it an 18cm.
Conditions where far from ideal with rain, hail and some vey strong gusts of wind at times it made fishing very difficult but the fish where there and it was just a case of persaverance.
With the match in full swing and for some plenty of fish coming out word came down that the water was starting to break against the slip way and there was a good chance we would not make it of the beach so after just
1 3/4 hours of fishing the match was halted and we made it of the beach just in time.
On to the results, in 3rd place was Neil Rowe with a total lenght of 316cm,
2nd was Mr consistant, Ian Childerhouse with 400cm and winning for a 2nd time in a row was Nathan Drewery with 510cm also finding the biggest flat, a 28cm Dab. Biggest round went to Andy Bunn with a 32cm Whiting.

NAC Report Monday 11th November KellingThe Joc Goudie Matchmans Trophy21 anglers braved the 30 to 40 mile an hour winds predicted by the forecasters, how wrong they were, yes it was windy but easily fish-able with the wind in a WSW direction meaning it was coming over from your left shoulder, slight drizzle and fairly chilly to say the least, the sea state had a slight chop in close but again no weed and this time plenty of fish for all.Pegging was as normal left and right of the car park but as always with this venue your either on the fish or your not, the whole venue holds pockets of fish at various distances and if you get in among them fish hard and fast. The winter species have certainly arrived in numbers, fishing an unfavorable tide an hour after high we expected a slow start, but as the match went on plenty of sizeable and undersized fish were caught and released. Top rod on the night and a first time 1st place for Nathan Drewery on end peg 21 with 20 fish for 8lb 8 1/3oz and now the 2019 Joc Goudie Matchmans cup winner, well done.Second podium spot went to Richard “The Coach” Hipperson on peg 16 with 17 fish for 7lb 5 2/3oz including a cracking 42cm whiting. Final podium spot went to Leon Smith on peg 8 with 19 fish for 6lb 7 1/3oz. A total of 224 fish were caught for a total weight of 77lb 3 1/3oz, heaviest round on the night was Richard Hipperson with a whiting of 42cm and heaviest flat fish went to Ian Childerhouse with a 29cm dab, well done to all who fished , next weeks match is at Cley please book in early , we should have plenty of rag, lug and yellowtails available.Please note now that numbers of fish are up, everyone needs to fill out their match cards clearly and get them signed off from the person next to you, if unsure please speak to one of the committee and we will happily show you, also please note when its busy its always preferred if you go to the person on your right to get card signed unless they are reeling in, or away from peg, this makes things fair for all involved, please also make sure fish are returned in front of the person signing and you must return the fish yourself if in doubt please ask.Please book in early for next weeks match.

NAC Report 4th November Mundesley
17 anglers for tonight’s Mundesley match , pegging was as always left and right of the slip, we had high hopes for tonight’s match and the majority were not disappointed, with 123 sizeable fish recorded and plenty undersized. Conditions for this time of year couldn’t have been better, no wind, no rain and no weed for the most part, fishing a flood tide saw top rod on the evening Billy Rush card 16 fish for 6lb 2 2/3oz , closely followed by Ian Wells in second podium spot with 12 fish for 6lb 1 1/3oz, final podium spot went to Nathan Drewery with 13 fish for 4lb 8oz. Heaviest round went to Andrew Bunn with a 44cm bass and heaviest flat went to Leon Smith again with a flounder of 29cm, well done t o all who fished, as the results show if you were not on the fish then you struggled, finding gulleys and using watercraft can sometimes make a big difference to your results.
