NAC Match Report Sheringham 13th January 2020

NAC Match Report Sheringham 13th January 2020

In anticipation of the effects of storm Brendan on the match, and whether the rumoured early arrival of Dog Fish was true,  and who in the top three in the league would take the night, 10 intrepid NAC anglers kitted up for the storm and headed for the shingle at the end of Sheringham’s promenade (Lifeboat station end).   

Setting up in the shelter of the cliffs the wind was only breezy and the sea had a slight swell with no visible weed. The match kicked off  in great style with Nathan Drewery quickly catching a 58 cm Dog Fish on Peg 4. So they were about, it wasn’t a rumour !.

The evening progressed and proved to be ‘Whiting fest ‘ with over 100 Whiting caught the biggest of which were a 40cm caught by Russell Taylor, 2 x 37cm caught by Ian Wells on Peg 3,  and 2 x 36cm caught by Gary Moore on Peg 5. The total number of fish for the night numbered 114 and in addition to the 100 Whiting and the Dog Fish there were few Pouting, Rockling and a 29cm Flounder caught by guess who ? (Mr Drewery was having a successful night !).

All managed to catch fish, no blanks. The only quiet point was when storm Brendan arrived and we all felt the wind and were rapidly drowned with rain, well for those without a bivvy. When 10:30pm arrived there was a quick stroll back along the shingle and promenade to the car park for ‘results’ (speedy admin Russell !) and a chance to dry off.

Nathan Drewery on Peg 4 picked up a well-deserved No 1 podium spot (354 weight points) a clean sweep that also included the biggest Round and Flat. Andrew Turk came in at No 2 on Peg 2 with 17 fish (310 weight points – a personal best), and Simon Bottomley taking No 3 podium spot fishing from Peg 1 (304 weight points – another personal best), close on their heels was Gary Moore on Peg 5 (294 weight points). A quick check by of the Pegs shows those in Pegs 1 – 5 came in the top 5 for the night.

In all a successful night justifying the feeling of anticipation with everyone catching sizeable whiting, storm Brendan’s impact was limited, the Dog Fish arrived (well 1!), and Nathan Drewery took No 1 for the night. I’m sure Ian Childerhouse and Ian Wells will be back on the podium soon. Finally congratulations to Russell Taylor for winning the Team of 5s match held at Salthouse on 12th January.

Next match will be 20th January at Gorleston

NAC Match Report Waxham 6th January 2020

NAC Report 6th January 2020 Waxham

10 anglers turned up for tonight’s bait pack match, for a bit of fun a half pint of mixed maggots was added onto the bait pack specifically to target flounders, by the end of the match most had caught fish on maggots either by tipping off worm or 30 plus on a hook.

An unseasonably warm evening with a light breeze made for a pleasant evening with a slight swell early on and very little weed.

Top rod on the night by a long way was John Catchpole on end peg 10 with 14 fish 3lb 3 1/3oz including a 26cm flounder caught on maggots, second podium spot went to the ever consistent Ian Childerhouse on the other end peg 1 with 9 fish for 1lb 8oz and finding his form in third place was Andrew Turk, with 6 fish for 11 1/3oz.

Biggest round fish also went to John Catchpole with a whiting of 28cm but his flounder was pipped by a 27 dab for Ian Childerhouse taking biggest flat of the night.

A tough evening fishing for most being plagued by under sized pin whiting and dabs.

Next weeks match is back to Sheringham which fished really well last time.
