NAC Report Salthouse 24 September 2018

Booked in we had 32 anglers, but due to work and vehicle issues 4 sadly couldnt attend at the last minute, so with a fantastic turnout we still had 28 anglers on the beach, pegging was left and right of the road. As always the weather men had it wrong as the strong NW wind was more like a slight breeze, but the wind from the day had certainly put a good swell on which made it difficult for many, weed was also prevelant and a few pegs struggled with snags.

Salthouse or “shitehouse” as it is sometimes known can be an amazing venue but it can also provide some gruelling scratchy matches and this was the case tonight with only 8 out of the 28 managing to find a fish. Tonights match was a length only match so every centermetre over 18cm would count to your final tally with all fish being returned as per normal.

Top rod on the night was Peter Simmonds taking full advantage of his end peg to the right managing to scratch out 3 fish for 75cm including a bass at 36cm
Second place went to Russell Taylor with 2 fish for 56cm including a cracking dab of 31cm, final podium spot went to Dene Conway winkling out a rockling early on and then a last cast dab giving him a total of 42cm.

A very tough night for all with some packing up and calling it a night before the end but September is renowned for being a tough month, on a plus note things can only get better, well done to all who attended.

Next weeks match is at Overstrand, and so far the sand venues have certainly been fishing better than the shingle, lets hope this one produces some better bags. Please book in as early as you can especially with bait orders and if you can get to the shop to pick your bait it it would be a great help, those who can’t I will bring baits as per normal.

NAC Match Report Bacton 17th September

NAC Match Report Bacton 17th September

18 anglers turned up for tonight’s Bacton match, a venue we have fished several times over the years, based at Redhouse Caravan park we always fish to the right of the revetments, to everyone’s surprise the beach had changed dramatically, with water filled gulleys close in spreading out to the end of the groins to the sand bar, waders were the order of the day but for some fishing the gulley close in would have to be the option, none of us have ever seen the beach quiet like it is now. Expectations were not high and with a carpet of weed close in we all feared the worst. For some the weed was a major problem, but if you could manage to get close to the waters edge and fish from the sand bank with rod up high the weed further out was minimal, but so were the fish.

Flounders would probably be the target species if you could find them, not everyone made it to the end of the match due to conditions of weed and gulleys, so from the 18 starting only 7 managed to find a fish or two. Top spot this week went to Dene Conway with two fish for 1lb 4 2/3oz, including a smooth hound pup at 37cm. Second place podium went to guest angler Mark Kizzy, with two flounders for 10 2/3oz, and final podium spot went to Russell Taylor with three fish for 10 1/3oz.

All in all a very tough evening and a steep learning curve for some. Welcome to new members Nathan Boughen and Chippy Mortimer hope we will be seeing more of you at future matches.

Next weeks match is at Salthouse so back on the shingle again, please book in early especially with bait orders.

NAC Report Cart Gap 10th September 2018

With a few regulars unable to attend it was still a great turnout with 23 anglers pegged left and right of the slipway on a nice warm evening with a slight roll and a flooding tide. First time the club has fished up and over high tide at this venue and with last weeks poor showing of fish we all hoped this venue would make for some great fishing. As with most venues it can be a bit peggy and if your not on the fish then you have little chance of getting one, this proved to be the case with 8 out of the 23 failing to find fish. 43 fish were caught between the other 15, 33 bass were carded and returned along with 2 dabs , 1 sole, 1 eel, and 6 flounders the biggest of which was 31cm, falling to guest angler Fern Rogers on peg 21, beating her father Chas who failed to find a fish.

Onto the top rods in 1st place tonight and our top junior angler was Jimmy Shaul with an impressive haul of 5 fish for 4lb 10 2/3oz, this included 4 bass and a dab,showing the adults how its done from peg 2 and earning him £23 in winnings. 2nd place went to Andrew Bunn with 4 fish for 4lb 8oz, and finally in 3rd place and his first podium spot went to Peter Simmonds with 6 fish for 4lb 2 2/3oz.

Heaviest Flatfish of the night went to Fern Rogers with a nice 31cm flounder (12oz) winning her £11.50 and the heaviest round fish went to Leon Smith with a bass at 44cm (1lb 12 2/3oz) also winning £11.50.
A warm welcome to those that fished for the first time, John Harvey, Paul Frost, Fern Rogers, Chas, Andy Redfern, and Mark Cox and not to forget a returning club member from a few years ago Richard Craske, hope to see you all again.
All in all it was a great night on the beach in good company and as always good humour and banter, well done to all who fished.

Next weeks match is at Bacton llets hope its as good as this sand venue.Please make sure to book in early especially with bait orders.

NAC Match Report Kelling 3/9/18

First match of the new season saw a great turnout with 20 anglers gracing the shore at Kelling, welcome to our new members, Colin Clifford, Simon Bottomley, Eddie Bowie and Peter Simmonds. We all knew that tonight would be tough with calm conditions and clear water, so it was decided to fish to 18cm and also as with international matches allow mackerel t be caught on bait and pop ups only , with a maximum of 3 allowed. There is not a lot to say about the outcome of the match as the fishing was dire with 16 out of the 20 blanking, but it was a nice evening with some great banter and a chance to dust off the cobwebs of the last two months. Top rod went to Neil Haynes who managed two eels in the gutter and one mackerel, for 1lb 13oz , 2nd place went to Leon Smith with one fish for 9 1/3oz, 3rd place went to Colin Clifford on his debut match also finding a mackerel for 7 1/3oz and the only other to catch was Barry Iseton in 4th with a solitary dab for 6oz. Heaviest and only flatfish was Barry’s Dab and heaviest round fish went to Neil Haynes with a 37cm mackerel.
Next weeks match is at Cart Gap, Beach Rd, Happisburgh NR12 0PP, if unsure where it is please meet at shop fr 5pm. Please order your bait and book in as early as possible, if you can collect your bait from shop this will help me a lot but if you can’t let me know i will bring with as usual.

4th annual Norfolk Sea Angling Festival

The  4th annual Norfolk Sea Angling Festival took place on Saturday the 7th and Sunday the 8th of April, along the coastline of North Norfolk, boundaries were from Cromer Pier to Cley, with 39 anglers competing to catch the single heaviest fish each day, and then combining their daily weights for the two day overall position and a chance to win the top prize of £500 (subject to entries).

Other prizes on the table this year were the heaviest flatfish over the two days and the heaviest single bass which was a catch and release conversion due to current EU laws. 4 juniors and 4 ladies also competed for separate prizes, and with prizes down to 10th place everyone has a chance in this fun family event ran by the Norfolk Angling Club. Sponsorship and Support this year was again from Colmic UK and Rite Gear Angling Centre, so a big thank you to Shaun Stockley and Adam Nurse from Colmic UK.

With spring finally in the air and the last few weeks throwing up some decent codling, bass and dogfish expectations were running high and maybe this year as with 4 years ago some spring codling would make a welcome appearance.

Onto day one we were greeted by a lovely sunny day , light winds and perfect spring conditions, as anglers began returning with fish rumor control had already been rife with talk of a 3lb plus codling being caught by Gary Medlar this turned out to be a nice fish at 41cm but a tad short of the rumors, Helen Molloy had caught a nice dogfish on her first cast and this rumor proved to be correct much to the disdain of her young England international son Adam Molloy who apparently now must wear a wig for the next teams of five match, as usual within our area there is always plenty of banter, with some good friendly rivalry.

Sadly only 18 anglers managed to find a sizable round fish on day one and that included 3 of the 4 juniors, and 2 out of the 4 ladies, showing the men how it’s done, the biggest fish of the day was Helen Molloy with a cracking dogfish of 1.005kg.

Onto the second day and its all to play for those that blanked knew they had to find a sizeable fish to card if they had a chance of getting in the top ten, and the pressure was also on for those who carded on day one as they needed to add to their weight on day two, decisions needed to be made whether to try for the top ten or try for the flatfish or bass prize, or as many would do just go all out for a big fish.

Top fish on the day was Chris Clare with a lovely codling of 1.435kg, and reports filtered in that a sizeable bass had been caught by junior angler Curtis Taylor with a cracker at 45cm, measured, photographed and returned, it was turning out to be lads beating dads as Chris had also beaten his dad Chuff Clare over the weekend, Curtis beating his father Russell Taylor, Fynn Betts also beating his dad Darren Betts, so well done to all.

A big well done to all competitors who brought fish back to the scales, as the care given to these fish with regular changing of water throughout the match meant that more than 60% of the fish caught were in fact returned alive and those that didn’t make went to local families and business owners for free.

Onto the final combined results from each day, we started the presentation with the Juniors, as always we try to make sure all get a prize and this year was no exception, 4th place went to Adam Molloy, 3rd place to Keiron Edwards 2nd place to Curtis Taylor and Top Junior of the weekend and in his first competition was Fynn Betts, well done to all of you.

The Ladies were next to take the stage with Ros Stanley taking 4th place, Nicole Conway 3rd place Stephanie Erison 2nd place and top lady of the weekend was Helen Molloy.

Biggest Bass of the weekend went to junior rod Curtis Taylor with a 45cm specimen

And biggest flat was a 33cm flounder for Michael Gill

Onto the overall winners Gary Medlar managed to add to his day one weight with a nice dogfish giving him a combined weight of 1.555kg taking 3rd place overall , Ian Nelson also in the frame last year managed a dog fish on both days and took 2nd place overall with a weight of 1.585kg and taking top spot this year and the new Norfolk Angling Festival Champion 2018 was Ian Childerhouse again managing to card both days for a total weight of 1.690kg.

Full results are listed below.
Let’s hope next year’s event is even bigger and better once again thank you to everyone who supported the event, including all competitors and all sponsors.

NAC Report Weybourne 26th March 2018

NAC Report Weybourne 26th March 2018

Clean Sweep For Taylor!!

With the distinct lack of fish since the first “Beast from the East” expectations were not high, but we had buckets full of hope as this is the time of year when the dogfish,big pouting, rays and codling should be making an appearance along with the usual dabs and whiting. After last weeks trip down to Gorleston with 14 anglers not finding a single fish, numbers were down this week, with 2 having to cancel at the last minute, meant only 12 would be competing. We arrived at Weybourne to find a couple of pleasure anglers fishing to the left of the pipe, so it was decided to peg around them and give them some space and not make our walk a long one, and of course say hello and see if they had been catching.

The odd dab and undersized whiting started to make an appearance but not any great numbers, so our hopes were somewhat diminished, then next to me Chris Newstead pulled in a codling, sadly he wasn’t in the match or he may well have been up in the top 3, well done mate. This one fish raised the hopes of everyone along the match stretch , and i am sure it will also raise the hopes of many who read the NAC reports.

Russell Taylor fished the full night with ragworm on the bottom hook and the usual lug, blacks, tipped fish baits on the other two hooks, his aim was to find out if the dogfish would make an appearance, and they did in the form of a cracking 65cm taken on the ragworm, he had 3 other fish including a lovely 29cm dab , which gave him the top rod of the night along with heaviest round and heaviest flat, 4 fish in total for 3lb 5 1/3oz. Second place podium spot went to the always consistent Leon Smith with 5 fish for 1lb 6oz and in his second ever club match it was Kevin Wyatt taking the third place podium spot with 4 fish for 1lb 1 1/3oz.

It really does seem like we have had a famine of fish the last few outings but things certainly could be looking up and with the Festival only 2 weeks away we could be seeing some great fishing from now on.Feel Free to share the report and spread the good news.

Next weeks match is at Kelling lets have a good turnout and see if we can entice a few more codling and dogfish out.

NAC Report Overstrand 12-2-18

Overstrand 12/02/18
11 of us turned up hoping to fish overstrand as it’s a beach that can throw up a surprise fish and many where set up for just that with bigger hooks and fresh yellows. Unfortunately when we arrived at the end of the prom our path was blocked by a very muddy landslide, it was deemed to dangerous to try and climb over so we all decided to head to Mundesley and fish.
Pegging was left and right of the slope and with quite a few waves breaking at distance it was clear it wasn’t going to be plain sailing, as usual on the sand weed was a worry but fortunately it was manageable.
On to the fishing, or lack of. After the first hour it was clear that you wouldn’t need many fish for the win in fact you only needed one sizeable fish and it was young Jimmy ShaulI who did what none of us could, he found a 27cm whiting to take the win and also the biggest round for the evening, smaller whiting were caught but very few.

NAC Report 5th February 2018 Kelling

NAC Report 5th February 2018 Kelling

After the teams of five on Sunday and the appalling conditions, many had said Monday night would not be fishable, but as always with our weather fronts in EA, never believe what you read and trust your own instincts, what a difference a day makes, still a rough sea but easily fishable, a light wind albeit very cold under a lovely clear sky.

13 of us turned out for the first match of the new season with several members having to work or swap shifts to manage this weekend’s Two-Day event, even with numbers down, banter was again high, and everyone was eager to give it a go. Pegging was left and right of the gate.

From the off everyone was catching fish, but the majority were under the allotted size limits, dabs 23cm, whiting 27c, etc, but it shows a lot of fish are still available to be caught. As tide picked up on the flood so did the fishing and the larger quality fish made an appearance. Last week’s winner Greg Kiddell drew end peg towards the wreck normally a very productive end and normally where the winners would come from, at the other end of the pegging on peg 1 was Richard “The Coach ” Hipperson, end pegs can be very productive, but we all know Kelling can be hit and miss, your either on the fish or you’re not.

In third place and first time on the podium with the NAC was Richard Ling on peg 9 carding 10 sizeable fish for 4lb 2oz, second place and two weeks in a row on the podium was Gregory Kiddell making good use of his end peg (13) carding 11 fish for 4lb 4oz, and finally taking top rod honour was Dene Conway carding 15 fish for 5lb 14oz. Some cracking fish were recorded with the heaviest whiting going to Billy Rush a cracker at 36cm, there were also several at 34cm, and 35cm so a good showing, and some nice plump healthy fish, heaviest flat went to Dene Conway with a nice dab of 27cm.
An excellent performance from our junior angler Jimmy Shaul managing to keep up with and beat several of the adults , managing a very respectable 5th overrall.

In total 98 fish were caught between 12 of us as we also had one blanker which wasn’t through lack of trying but lack of warmer gear. Total weight was 35lb 14oz.

Next week’s match is at Overstrand, please note this coming Friday & Saturday is the Joc Goudie Beach Masters at Kelling and Salthouse fishing 11am till 4pm each day.

NAC Report 29th January 2018

NAC Report Bacton 29th January 2018

A fine evening with a slight sea, saw us making a return to Bacton for the final match of the winter season.
As with all sand matches the numbers were down on last weeks match, with 14 anglers attending.

The match was a length only match with everything 18cm counting on the cards, as sizeable fish have been less on the sand venues.

A slow start for many but with the sea being held in longer on the ebb than normal due to the wind, we all found ourselves fishing from the promenade comfortable on the concrete until the tide dropped enough to get down on the sand.
Quick welcome to new club member Denver Garry who also managed to find a few fish on his first match.

Taking top spot and his first ever podium position was Gregory Kiddell, who found the fish and kept working hard to build his score, finishing on 14 fish for 338cm, close behind him was that man again Simon Bone also with 14 fish for 315cm, and final podium spot went to Luke Lukeyboy Childerhouse with 9 fish for 204cm.

Biggest round went to Simon Bone with a 34cm whiting and biggest flat went to Ian Childerhouse with a nice 30cm flounder.

And that was that another league over with and cracking straight onto the summer league this coming Monday at Kelling.
