NAC Match Report Weybourne 27th September 2021

NAC Match Report Weybourne 27th September 2021  

No blanks at Weybourne and a rocket ! (What more could you ask for)

After last week’s match at Sea Palling with only 13 fish caught anticipation was high that Weybourne would be more productive and that the fish gods had moved the fish up the coast. Pre match conversation was not about the fishing but more about trying to find petrol stations open and the lack of fuel locally. Hopefully, with the weather fine, light breeze and an incoming tide the scene was set for a competitive match. Great to see a good turnout (18) with some new and old faces joining the merry band.

With the numbers the beach was pegged from the pipe (peg 18) towards Kelling (peg 1), and given all arrived by 18:00pm (thanks) it was decided to kick off at 18:45pm, and with a low anticipated fish size it was agreed to continue to fish 18cm +.

Early activity set the scene as Dabs started to appear, hopefully maybe a few Bass once the tide came in and the light levels dropped. But the Dabs they kept on coming along with a few Pouting at the Kelling end of the beach. In total 123 fish caught (compared to 13 last week) of which 90/123 were Dabs. Bass did make an appearance, but none were of good size 10/123. A tally of 9 Pouting, 5 Flounder, 5 Eels, and 2 Rockling made up the remainder.

Before we reveal the winners, it might be interesting to note that we were treated to a local lightning show over the wind turbines – see Nathan’s video. Bit of more interest was the bright light which looked to be a satellite (?) but it turned out to be the Landsat 9 launch rocket out of California. Not every day you see that (thanks to our own Patrick Mower – Mr Craske for finding that out.)….see photo

So back to the fishing, winner of the night was Stephen Medler (peg 7) with an impressive 14 fish collecting 224 weight points, beating Neil Hayes (peg 10 ) with 204 weight points, and Pete Simmons (peg 4) on 164 weight points. Biggest flat of the night went to “Mr Reliable” Leon Smith (peg 3) with a 33cm Flounder, whilst on form Nathan Drewery (peg 9) picked up biggest round of the night on his last cast (as per usual) with a 56cm Dog Fish. All in all, a good night what with no blanks, 123 fish, 36lb 3/16oz and a rocket !.

See you next week (4th October 2021) at Walcott – back to the sand.

NAC Match Report Sea Palling 20th September 2021  

Prepared by Russell Taylor

No Simon last night but still an excellent turn out with 19 fishing including 2 new members, father and son Stephen and Jamie Medlar, welcome to the club chaps, also 2 returning members Gregory Kiddell and Neil Haynes, good to see you both back on the beach and we had a special guest appearance from Richard Craske

Pegging was to the left of the long stay carpark steps and with high tide around 8pm it meant a long trek for most to the second bay but was it worth it?. For nearly all no it wasn’t, even fishing to 18cm the fish were hard to find.

With only 13 fish recorded it was the returning Greg Kiddell who not only managed to find the biggest fish of the night, a 54cm Bass but the most fish carding a whopping 3 fish for 172 points,

Second spot went to Ian Wells who found 2 Bass for 100 points and only 8 points behind him was myself with a solitary 45cm Bass for 92 points.

Richard Hipperson obviously couldn’t be bothered chasing the Bass instead opting for a bit of flounder fishing which paid off as it landed him biggest flat of the night, a 27cm .

Lucky peg went to Eamon Finch.

1st Gregory Kiddell                      30pts + 5pts biggest round

2nd Ian Wells                                29pts

3rd Russell Taylor                         28pts

NAC Match Report Waxham 13th September 2021

NAC Match Report Waxham 13th September 2021  

Nathan nails Waxham !

For the 2nd match of this 2021 – 2022 Winter League it was a return to Waxham, the last time was January 2020 with a bait pack which included maggots. Waxham is one of those typically Norfolk villages that takes some finding but is very much worth the search, but don’t tell anyone! (Note: parking can be difficult in the peak of the summer). With 12 booked into fish the match the waiting and pre match banter was quick and easy in the last of the summer sunshine. Nice to see Clive Parker again and a welcome back to Norfolk.

The pathway to the beach leads you through the dunes onto a very open and clean beach with some large stone groynes. We pegged from the 1st groyne (peg 1) to the next groyne on the right (peg 12). With the tide in ebb and about to bottom out there were a few waves highlighting the various sandbars offshore. Pegs 4/5 seemed to find the only snaggy bit of the beach. Fish off was 19:00

Early successes went to Billy Rush (peg 2) with a 48cm Bass, Richard Hipperson (peg 1) with a 28cm Flounder. But the successes then switched to the other end of the beach with Nathan Drewery (peg 11), Ian Childerhouse (peg 10),  Russell Taylor (peg 9) and Neil Rowe (peg 8) starting to consistently bag a few bass.  

With less numbers fishing than last week (it was worth the trip down the coast for this special venue) a total of 34 fish caught converted into 1831 weight points (38lb 2/16oz). The 34 consisted of 31 Bass, 1 Dab and 2 Flounders. Congratulations to Nathan not only winning the match (see numbers below) but for catching the biggest round of a 51cm Bass, and to Richard Hipperson for catching the biggest flat a Flounder of 28cm.  

See you next week (20th September) at Sea Palling, always an interesting venue.

Match Result:

1st          Nathan Drewery            peg 11                5 fish               431 weight points (9lb)

2nd         Russell Taylor 9              peg 9                  4 fish              307 weight points (6lb 6/16oz)

3rd         Neil Rowe                       peg 8                  6 fish              277 weight points (5lb 12/16oz)

NAC Match Report Bacton 6th September 2021

NAC Match Report Bacton 6th September 2021  

1st Match of the 2021-2022 Winter League at Bacton

After a variable summer of pleasure fishing it was great to be back at Bacton for the start of the 2021-2022 Winter League. Big thanks to Nathan Drewery for organising the pleasure fishing sessions using his random venue wheel of fortune.

With the weather more like the start of summer than the end 16 anglers met very promptly in the Bacton car park ready to fish. After last week’s presentation evening it clearly felt like a new start. Would anyone, could anyone take on Mr Childerhouse and win this Winter League. Admin took a while due to membership fees and hoodie fees, but all concluded in time for 6:00pm peg draw. Yes, back to pegged fishing and catch sign off! It was clearly a start of the new term!.

From opposite the car park (approx peg 8) we pegged left to right (thanks Russell). Given it was high tide at 19:23pm we managed to set up on the bar in front of the gully, which was just starting to fill. Anticipation was high and with the tide coming in and fishing to 18cm + conversion, everybody was ready for an early start at 18:45pm. Early signs were good with Leon Smith (peg 2) picking up a brace of early flounders, but then it went quiet at our end of the beach. Further down the beach a few hounds and bass made an appearance.

With 16 fishing it was a sparse/dire night with only 20 fish caught converted to 1159 weight points (24lb 2/16 oz). Biggest flat was a 30cm Flounder caught by Ian Wells (peg 14), whilst the biggest round was a 73cm Smooth Hound caught by an inform Nathan Drewery (peg 5). As mentioned at the presentation evening the plan is to award a trophy for the biggest flat and round at the end of each league, so watch this space for hopefully some big catches. But all said and done it was a nice night to be out fishing, nice to be back.

All venues/results can be found by searching Norfolk Angling Club website for latest information and match reports.

Match Result:

1st          Nathan Drewery            peg 5                  2 fish               290 weight points (6lb 1/16oz)

2nd         Pete Simmons                peg 8                  2 fish              192 weight points (4lb)

3rd         Eamon Finch                   peg 13                2 fish              172 weight points (3lb 9/16oz)
