Rough conditions – but there are rewards for the hardy
A wild week with seas unfishable for large parts in the north and east of the region – those that did brave the conditions were rewarded with some nice school bass and codling.
Weed made fishing the shingle difficult and there were few catch reports as a result. East Norfolk was a little better and there some good bass catches from Cromer, Trimingham and Mundesley.
Christian Bulch of Team Sabre Tackle had some superb flounders to 1lb 8oz and a nice plump bass at Cromer in between the storms.
Small codling continue to show below Yarmouth. Jamie Bale had four in a nice session at Cromer, the biggest around 3lbm although he said that anglers fishing nearby seemed to miss out, indicating they can be quite tightly shoaled.
Below Lowestoft and there's a little more consistency – small codling and whiting have figured in catches from north beach down to Aldeburgh. I fished Aldeburgh with Justin Grapes on Sunday evening. Conditions were good as we arrived with the sea coloured and rolling. Unfortunately the conditions soon died back as the wind went south westerly and apart from a 2lb codling for Justin, it was occasional whiting for most of the anglers fishing.
