Sea Fishing: Tuck leads the field in Holt match

There were certainly more fish to be had on the shingle and in east Norfolk, where a few whiting, school bass and flatfish showed.

In Holt SAC's match at Kelling on Sunday a lot more fish were carded this week than last. Rob Tuck led the field with 8lb 10oz, a full ounce ahead of Sam Attew in second. Tony Thomas finished third with 32 fish for 7lb 7oz. Dabs predominated with a few good flounders and a couple of school bass, there were also a few whiting caught.

There were whiting and school bass reported from Cromer down to Yarmouth, Mundesley and Trimingham yielding a few, though there were fewer school bass than recently. The Yarmouth area has produced stacks of sizeable whiting which all bodes well for the Mark Alsop memorial match this Sunday, tickets and details from John on 07773 389121. There are a lot of sizeable whiting from Lowestoft with a few of the resident codling along Lowestoft north. From Southwold and southwards whiting are still the mainstay but I've seen a fair few codling to 6lb reported from Aldeburgh and Orford and the first shore caught double I've seen off the Ness too, a cracker at 12lb.
