Norfolk Angling Club Hit The Whiting At Bacton

Norfolk Angling Club LogoA smaller turnout this week with it being fireworks night family commitments and all that, so 16 of us set out to the right of the steps, from the off everyone was into fish, some undersized but some crackers as well. Weed was manageable and some tried the close in gulleys for flounders and maybe a bass but to no avail, as the tide dropped most opted to hit the distance for the bigger whiting and we were not disappointed.

Top rod and still on form was Russell Taylor with 23 fish for 8lb 13oz, 2nd podium spot went to our junior club member Jimmy Shaul Shaul showing a lot of the adults how to do it with 22 fish for 8lb 41/3oz and final podium spot went to Paul Thorburn with 20 fish for 7lb 10oz.

With 182 fish carded between 16 of us a good night was had by all.
