NAC Match Report Sheringham 19th October 2020  

After last weeks fish fest at Walcott, 15 very keen fisherman gathered at the Sheringham esplanade for hopefully a similar fish count and an exciting nights fishing. After some discussion it was decided to fish along the promenade with 2 -3 anglers per set of groynes up to the Lifeboat station. With High Tide expected at 21:14, anticipation was high. Would be still fishing on the cobbles/beach or fishing from the promenade. Luckily the weather was fine, a light swell on the tide so hopefully all would be able to remain on the beach.

Initial signs were that it would not be a fish fest, and the decision to score over 18cm was a good decision. In total 64 fish caught with a total weight of 32lbs (1537 weight points). In the fish haul there was a real mixture ranging from Bass, Coal Fish, Pouting, Eel, Sole, Flounder, Whiting and a couple of Rockling (see fish caught table). The largest round was shared between John Spalton (Peg 3), Andy Bunn (Peg 15), and Ian Wells (Peg 7) who all caught 40cm Bass. The largest flat caught went to Leon Smith (Peg 1) with a 34cm Sole. Please see the graph showing the peg numbers/name and weight points a useful guide to anyone fishing Sheringham promenade.

Match Result:

Winner on the night was our famous fishing drummer Ian Wells (Peg 7) with 11 fish weighing a total of 6lbs 8/16ozs (311 weight points), including a 40cm Bass. Second was Leon Smith (Peg 1) with 9 fish weighing 4lbs 7/16ozs (214 weight points), including that magnificent 34cm Sole. In third place was Nathan Drewery (Peg 2) also with 9 fish but weighing 3lbs 13ozs (182 weight points). Interesting match with a wide variety of fish caught, well done all, see you next week……stay safe.

Finally, the lucky peg draw went to Leon Smith.
