NAC Report 16th December 2019 Eccles Beach
The Simon “Luggy” Simon Farrow Cup
11 anglers arrived at this new venue for us all (Eccles-on-Sea, Norwich NR12 0SE – just down from Cart Gap) after the driveway from hell we all managed to park up safely in the gap and ready for our latest adventure, pegging was left and right of the slip. Flat calm conditions greeted us with a small swell in close should have meant whiting galore but as the first hour passed and the tide kept on flooding only undersized fish were making a nuisance of themselves with many catching triple shots of what can only be called micro whiting , even an 18cm match we would have struggled.
The night didn’t get much better as high tide came and the ebb started a few sizeable fish were being caught but top rod on the night went to Richard Hipperson on end peg 11 managing to winkle out 4 fish for 1lb 2 2/3oz , 2nd place with 3 fish on peg 8 was Ian Childerhouse with 14oz, and final podium spot went to Nathan Drewery on peg 10 with 2 fish for 10oz, heaviest round fish went to Neil Rowe with a 30cm whiting and heaviest flat was shared between Richard Hipperson and Chick Roper both with a 26cm dab.
In summary it was a pretty dire night with only 16 fish caught between us and two blanking lets hope next weeks match at Cley produces some good fish.
