NAC Match Report Weybourne 21st September 2020  

Third match of the league and it is a welcome back to Weybourne and the shingle. An earlier meeting time of 17:45pm meant that all were all ready to hit the beach for a 18:30pm cast off. The weather was warm with a little breeze and an incoming tide (22:25pm) spirits were high. Even an instruction to walk off in order (no pegging as part of COVID-19 mitigation) seemed to have passed everyone by as all were keen to set up and fish.

Whilst on the theme of COVID-19 all members are requested to book in on the Facebook or What App application (supports track & trace), having exact monies and socially distancing (supports reducing contamination risk). A bottle of sanitiser is available within the Admin Box for the match.

The beach was popular with a few late holiday makers, so the team set off and pegged up the beach. See the image below showing peg and fish caught locations. Confidence was high and early small dabs started to appear and set the mood for the evening. No blanks! everyone caught. In total 158 fish caught (32lb 2/16oz weight), of which 147 were Dabs. The largest ‘round’ was a 24cm Bass caught by Ian Childerhouse (Peg 8), and the largest ‘flat’ was a 29cm Flounder caught by Pete Simmonds (Peg 4).  

Match Result:

Fresh from his early bath last week Pete Simmonds (Peg 4) achieved his first podium spot of 2020/2021 season with a haul 19 fish with a total weight of 4lb 2/16oz. Second spot went to Leon Smith (Peg 2) with 15 fish and a total weight of 3lb 7/16oz. Third podium spot went to Chick Roper (Peg 3) catching 18 fish with a weight of 3lb 6/16oz. Close to the leaders Richard Hipperson (Peg 13) catching 15 fish with a weight of 3lb 5/16oz deserves a mention. Clearly the Kelling end of the beach was very productive.

On a final note Russell’s luck peg draw went to Ian Childerhouse.

Next weeks match planned to be at Sea Palling – watch out for Facebook details
