Nathan Finds The Fish At Kelling

by David Proudfoot

nac-logoThe one where Nathan takes No 1 slot with 28 fish/486 weight points, and Simon catches a unicorn.

After the slim pickings of last week’s match at Gt Yarmouth (South), as a stand in for Walcott, hopes were high with a back to the -2 degrees C, shingle, clear night and the high tide of Kelling. 23 fished so a lot of pegging for Neil. Best wishes go to John Gent who missed last night due to planned surgery, and a big welcome to Jason Wrona who fished his first match last night.

With only one more match after this one the winter league is in its final stages. Stats will be scrunched for:

  • Overall 1st/2nd/3rdfor the winter league
  • Greatest number of fished blanks (Barry Iseton trophy)
  • Biggest winning weight score of the league
  • Biggest flat of the league
  • Biggest round of the league

kelling-beach-01It became obvious early on that there were more fish about with everyone seeing early catches to size limits, meaning cardable. In total 290 fish caught between 23 anglers, giving an average of 13 per angler carded. In addition, there was the inconvenience to those pesky undersized ones. With everyone catching the cold temperatures were not really noticed, we must be a hardy bunch.
