Unhooking mat found at Bog Grove

One of our members was fishing at Bog Grove yesterday 31st Oct and found an unhooking mat hanging in the trees. It would be nice if the owner gets it back.  Please contact the membership secretary or email webmaster@maldonas.co.uk if the unhooking mat belongs to you.

Totham Pit stocking policy

A few members have asked now that we have a new ten year lease on Totham Pit what our stocking policy is.  Based on previous experience we are proceeding cautiously and with this in mind we have moved two dozen carp from Bog Grove to Totham Pit with the owners consent to monitor how they fare next spring.  If all goes well we have purchased thirty carp averaging low doubles to stock into Totham Pit next autumn.  These are a good strain of fish that have grown to 25lb+ in some of our other waters so hopefully they will do likewise in Totham Pit.

New Totham Pit and Bog Grove licence secured

Good news, after two years of negotiations we have been successful in securing a new ten year licence for Totham Pit and Bog Grove.  This at last puts any rumours to bed regarding the future of these two lakes within our portfolio.  Maintenance works have continued on both of these fisheries during the last two years including the repair of paths, bridges, steps and swims plus numerous trimming up exercises.  This new ten year agreement allows us to extend this to include fish stocks and gate upgrades.

All night permits for this season are now sold out

Standard night permits for the 2016-17 season are now sold out as all 120 have been sold.  These will go back on sale for the 2017-18 season in December 2016 and will be valid from Christmas day with night fishing until 31st March 2017 included at no extra charge.  Howells night permits have been sold out since May.  Any free spaces for the 2017-18 season will go on sale on 1st April 2017.

Please treat our biggest asset with care

Members and guests are reminded to treat the fish they catch with the respect they deserve and always use a suitable sized landing net and an unhooking mat.  Current rule (6.9) states that an unhooking mat is only compulsory when fishing for carp and pike but this will change on the 1st April 2017 to try and prevent fish of any species being laid on the ground.  This rule change does not take immediate effect to allow everyone plenty of time to buy a mat that is suitable for both them and the fish they catch.  Please ensure in hot weather that your mat is sufficiently ‘wetted down’ or covered with a wet weigh sling to further protect your catch.
