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.
