NAC Match Report Gt. Yarmouth (South Beach) December 2021
Size Matters at Gt. Yarmouth
With a positive predicted forecast from Mr Spalton the weather/tide man (see match day video) all were looking forward to a good night’s fishing. With the Government threatening further shutdowns was this the last match for a while ? . The evening had another special feel as it was the night to draw the Walking with the Wounded raffle. With 9 anglers gathered near the Premier Inn the evening started well with the magical Mr Finch conjuring up fresh sausage rolls. Thanks Mrs F.
Pegging was from the Premier Inn towards the roller coaster. With the tide rising and a clear cool, moonlit evening it was match on, casting off at 6:30pm fishing to size limits. The roller coaster represented the match from beginning to end with lots of whiting being caught in doubles and trebles but mostly undersized. Lots of up/down the beach emptying the bucket but without carding many. The task ahead was to try, and avoid the small ones in favour of the carded over 27cm Whiting and 23cm Dabs. The bigger fish were there, but shy !
However, Nathan and Eamon somehow managed to find their way through the tings to the larger “cardable” fish. The biggest flat was a 28cm Dab to Nathan fishing from Peg 1, the largest round being a 34cm Whiting to Stephen Medlar. John S peg 5 and Simon peg 1 missed out with 33cm Whitings. At the final count up 73 fish carded of which 67/72 were Whiting, with 5 Dabs. Honours for the night went to on form Nathan Drewery fishing peg 2 with 16 fish…..well done !
1st Nathan Drewery peg 2 16 fish 268 weight points (5lb 9/16oz)
2nd Eamon Finch peg 8 13 fish 225 weight points (4lb 11/16oz)
3rd John Catchpole peg 4 10 fish 178 weight points (3lb 11/16oz)
Lucky peg went to Simon Bottomley. Thanks to Mrs B for the mince pies munched during reporting.
