Bass Show Up At Sheringham

by Dene Conway

Norfolk Angling Club LogoWith 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. 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 nine anglers who found the fish. Sadly six 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 four fish for 169cm his catch included an eel and three bass the biggest of which was 51cm. Second podium spot went to Andrew Bunn also with four fish measuring 152cm, a flounder and three bass with the biggest being 53cm.
