NAC Match Report Kelling 11 November 2019 (the Joc Goudie Match Mans Trophy)

NAC Report Monday 11th November KellingThe Joc Goudie Matchmans Trophy21 anglers braved the 30 to 40 mile an hour winds predicted by the forecasters, how wrong they were, yes it was windy but easily fish-able with the wind in a WSW direction meaning it was coming over from your left shoulder, slight drizzle and fairly chilly to say the least, the sea state had a slight chop in close but again no weed and this time plenty of fish for all.Pegging was as normal left and right of the car park but as always with this venue your either on the fish or your not, the whole venue holds pockets of fish at various distances and if you get in among them fish hard and fast. The winter species have certainly arrived in numbers, fishing an unfavorable tide an hour after high we expected a slow start, but as the match went on plenty of sizeable and undersized fish were caught and released. Top rod on the night and a first time 1st place for Nathan Drewery on end peg 21 with 20 fish for 8lb 8 1/3oz and now the 2019 Joc Goudie Matchmans cup winner, well done.Second podium spot went to Richard “The Coach” Hipperson on peg 16 with 17 fish for 7lb 5 2/3oz including a cracking 42cm whiting. Final podium spot went to Leon Smith on peg 8 with 19 fish for 6lb 7 1/3oz. A total of 224 fish were caught for a total weight of 77lb 3 1/3oz, heaviest round on the night was Richard Hipperson with a whiting of 42cm and heaviest flat fish went to Ian Childerhouse with a 29cm dab, well done to all who fished , next weeks match is at Cley please book in early , we should have plenty of rag, lug and yellowtails available.Please note now that numbers of fish are up, everyone needs to fill out their match cards clearly and get them signed off from the person next to you, if unsure please speak to one of the committee and we will happily show you, also please note when its busy its always preferred if you go to the person on your right to get card signed unless they are reeling in, or away from peg, this makes things fair for all involved, please also make sure fish are returned in front of the person signing and you must return the fish yourself if in doubt please ask.Please book in early for next weeks match.

NAC Match Report Salthouse 28th October 2019

NAC Report Salthouse Monday 28th October 2019

27 anglers arrived at Salthouse, with tonights match being a length only match it was decided to have two sections spreading the prize table a bit more, fishing to size limits pegging was left and right of the main drive.

Weather conditions were favorable and dry compared to previous weeks with a slight sea running we all hoped for the bass to play ball, and hopefully get into plenty of the winter species. It soon became apparant that as the tide ebbed there wasn’t much of a tide pull and the sizeable fish were scarce in numbers, with many catching undersized bass,dabs, whiting etc.

14 anglers were in section A to the left and out of these only 5 managed to find a sizeable fish, winning the section with 3 fish for 71cm was Dave Mathers, and second place went to Russell Taylor with 2 fish for 46cm. Section B had 13 anglers and out of these 7 caught ,with the overall winner removed from section results as is the norm, this gave Ian Childerhouse the section win with 2 fish for 67cm, and 2nd place went to Richard Hipperson with 65cm.

Overall winner and first time on the podium spot was Chris Roberts with 5 fish for 126cm, 2nd place went to Dave Mathers with 71cm and 3rd place went to Ian Childerhouse with 67cm.

Heaviest flat of the night went to Leon Smith with a 33cm flounder and heaviest round was shared between Richard Hipperson and Ian Childerhouse both with a 42cm bass. From 27 anglers only 12 managed to find the sizeable fish with 25 being caught, well done to all who fished.

NAC Match Report Sheringham 14th October 2019

NAC Report 14th October Sheringham

18 anglers attended the latest winter league match at Sheringham, a calm evening with a forecast for light rain, as some wanted to fish the promenade and some the shingle past the lifeboat station, it was decided to make this match a rover as long as you were pegged next to another angler for recording catches. As the match progressed it was difficult to gauge how everyone was doing being so spread out but as the results came in another good night was recorded. 33 sizeable fish were carded, again 6 anglers blanked but the 12 who did card had mixed bags with 17 bass, 7 flounders a few pout ,rockling,whiting and another cracking sole at 40cm. Top rod on the night was John Catchpole with 4 fish for 5lb 10 1/3oz 3 bass all over 40cm and a nice flounder at 31cm, 2nd place went to Nigel Spencer with 3 bass for 5lb 4 oz and final podium spot went to Andrew Bunn with 4 fish for 5lb 2 1/3oz, heaviest round was shared between the top 3 all with a bass of 46cm, heaviest flatfish was that cracking 40cm sole which fell to Nick Austen on his first ever sea angling trip. All in all a very enjoyable evening showing that the bass are still here in numbers and with te winter species starting to show it could be a great season, well done to all.

NAC Match Report Sheringham 30th September 2019

NAC Report Monday 30th September 2019 Sheringham

With flood warnings in place and a tidal surge predicted at Cley and various other venues it was decided to opt for a safer venue so we could continue with the match without fear of being cut off, so Sheringham along the promenade was chosen, the weather forecast had predicted persistent rain from about 4pm but as always this came later, we had just enough time to get setup before it came and stayed all night.

Weed in close caused a few issues as the tide pushed in but those that managed to keep their rods up high and their line out of the surf started to catch a few fish.

In total 30 fish were carded between 9 anglers who found the fish, sadly 6 blanked, but with weather conditions the way they were 15 was still a good turnout so well done to all.

The conditions were almost perfect for bass with a fair swell running, the aim would be to cast towards the end of the groins and hope for one or two. We were not disappointed with 20 out of the 30 fish caught being bass, several flounder, the odd eel, and one or two pout and whiting.

This was a length only match so different tactics can pay off, Luke Lukeyboy Childerhouse was top rod this week with 4 fish for 169cm his catch included an eel and 3 bass the biggest of which was 51cm, second podium spot went to Andrew Bunn also with 4 fish for 152cm from a flounder and 3 bass with the biggest being 53cm, final podium spot and first time for new member Nigel Spencer who also had 4 fish for 137cm with 4 bass. Heaviest round fish of the night went to Andrew Bunn with his 53cm bass and heaviest flatfish went to Dene Conway with a 35cm flounder.

Next weeks match we are at Walcott, please book in early.
