Steve Wins NAC Overstrand Match

NAC Match Report 2nd January 2023 - Overstrand

by Simon Bottomley

nac-logoHappy New Year 2023 – hope all your catches this year are cardable and are to size.

22 anglers fished, with a warm welcome to Duane and Daniel Lockwood, and to Andy Bunn returning to NAC fishing fresh from management training, we could all do with positive framing and reinforcement in 2023.

In total 126 fish caught with the additional of the usual plague of undersized dabs and whiting. Tough night for many, including me. While over 80% were whiting it was good to see a few rockling, dab and a lone flounder. Biggest flatfish was a 34cm flounder picked up by Andy Turk, and the biggest round fish was a magnificent 36cm whiting picked up by match winner Steve Medlar.

New summer schedule to kick off shortly, so if anyone has any venue ideas feel free to let me, Cain, Roger, Nathan or Ian know.

I thought last night we managed to not have need for any VAR for results last night, but looks like I missed Will Sprule who crept in with 170 points piping Pond Pete (168 points) and Nathan (167 points). It wouldn’t be a NAC match without a reporting gaff, apologies all.
