NAC Match Report Kelling 11th October 2021

NAC Match Report Kelling 11th October 2021  

Pairs match at Kelling doesn’t disappoint !

Eagerly anticipated last night’s match at Kelling, judged by the number of anglers responding to the Facebook invite. In total 20 anglers responded to the invite, great to see the return of Paul Grothier fishing for the first time with the NAC in a few months (years ?). Hopefully, Kelling would wipe out the memory of Walcott’s only 9 fish caught. The draw would be made at the beach car park with 10 paired pegs. So, the big question was who would pair with who.

See stats below for the draw

Kelling had been a successful pairs venue previously, so with an incoming tide, light wind and mild,  it was match on. See Roger Cunningtons’s photo of the view from the end peg and Richard Craske’s sunset.

We kicked off at 6:45pm, fishing for 18+cm, and immediately the bites came with a few Dabs and Bass picked up on the first chuck. As the tide continued to rise more and more Dabs were caught. In total 235 fish carded, of which 215 were Dabs, 12 Bass, the remainder being made up of Flounder, Pout, and a solitary Eel. In total 2570 weight points or 53lb 9/16oz. See fish count by peg. Certainly an impressive haul….well done all.

Individually the biggest Flat went to Russell Taylor with a 31cm Dab from peg 6, the biggest round of a 41cm Bass fell to Neil Haynes on peg 7 …see their cards, a busy night boys !. It was competitive all through the night with a tussle between Peg 6 ( Russell & Pete) and Peg 9 (Nathan and John S) with the winners of the match by a mere 1 weight point or 1/16oz but 3 more fish coming from the boys on Peg 6.

See match result below. No blanks, well done all.

1st          Russell Taylor / Pete Simmons                Peg 6              a total of 37 fish             377 weight points              7lb 14/16oz

NAC Match Report Walcott 4th October 2021  

Walcott disappoints, “but its great venue (see past results), but nobody told the fish to turn up.”

Could last week’s total of 123 fish caught on the shingle at Weybourne be beaten by our return to Walcott.. When we last fished Walcott in October 2020 we caught 292 fish, with an impressive haul of whiting . (see NAC Match Report Walcott 12th October 2020 | Norfolk Angling Club). So, with last week’s successes and previous track record spirits were high as 16 anglers gathered on the prom at Walcott. We welcomed new angler Marc Lawson for his first Monday night match.

Early photos circulated by 1st arrival John Spalton doing his pre match reconnaissance showed a quiet sea, very little movement and so it stayed that way by 6:00pm when we gathered for the peg draw. However, before the rush to the beach for a hopeful 6:30pm start we took a team photo to celebrate the arrival of the 2021 Hoodies. (See photo). A special thanks to Roger excelling in his Quartermaster role. What a team both front and rear views!

NAC Walcott 4th October 2021

With the tide peaking, but little movement there were no early catches to celebrate, and it looked to be one of those evenings, nice views, cool but no fish. First off, the mark was Ian Childerhouse (peg 13) with a 38cm Bass (55 weight points) was this the start of a run of bass? Simple answer No !. So, Ian picked up the biggest round of the evening. Ok so where were the usual flatties, was there a decent flounder to be caught. Simple answer Yes ….Roger Cunnington (peg 7) picked up the biggest flat with a 30cm Flounder. However, the evenings winner was Leon Smith with end peg number 16 catching 2 fish with a Bass and a Dab achieving  also 55 weight points. But the winner on the evening due to his 2 fish versus Ian’s 1.

With only 9 fish caught in total, with a weight points total of 181 (3lb 12/16oz) it wasn’t a fish fest but it was a good evening, and we were kept cosy by the new team hoodies. Hopefully, next week’s match (11 October 2021) at Kelling will be more productive.

Match Result:

1st          Leon Smith                      peg 16                2               55 weight points (1lb 2/16oz)

2nd         Ian Childerhouse            peg 13                1 fish              55 weight points (1lb 2/16oz)

3rd         Roger Cunnington          peg 7                  2 fish               38cm weight points (13/16oz)
