Great day at Totham Pit

Great day at Totham Pit today, this little lot by 11am. Went on to land 2 more Tench and about 15 Roach all 8oz+ but lost 4 more Tench and a Carp in the weed :(

Thanks to Paul Kemp for the picture.


Biggest Tench 6lb 8ozish, Biggest Bream 7lbish, Rudd just over 1lb.

Great job on the trees by the way – Kelvin Willis.

Winter newsletter

If you didn’t write your email address on your application/renewal form or send an extra stamped self addressed envelope to the membership secretary you might not have seen our winter newsletter in which case here it is: MASNews30 Jan17

Dan Hilton, one of two half price membership winners in this years photo competition.

One bream short of a ton

I have just received news that the CAA match at Beeleigh on Sunday was won by Chris Dyall with a top weight of 95lbs 4oz, 14 Bream the biggest weighing 10lbs.


Here are three of the Bream – we believe that 95lb 4oz is a river match record for the Chelmer & Blackwater canal, the next best weight that can be recalled is around 69lb.  If you know differently feel free to let our webmaster@maldonas.co.uk know.

Our canal and river sections re-opened on 16th June

Our river sections re-opened to fishing on Thursday 16th June.  Even if you are not a member you can fish the Chelmer & Blackwater canal on a day ticket (cost £6 for adults on the bank, £4.50 for concessionaries and only £2 for juniors).  Adult day tickets are cheaper if bought in advance from JP Tackle in Maldon High Street.  Members of Maldon AS, Chelmsford AA, Colchester APS and Kelvedon DAA do not have to pay for a day ticket (on production of a valid membership card).  The River Blackwater stretches at Wickham Bishops and Langford are also now open and exclusive to Maldon AS members only.

Dan Hilton has once again tracked down one of the big bream in the canal

Not quite as big as last year’s double but still impressive at 9lb 8oz.

Brian Webber’s mixed bag

This was my second place concessionary match bag from Slough House Farm beaten by an excellent 21lb carp by Jack Morley.

Brian’s bag – just pipped to top spot by a carp.

Photo competetion winners announced

To encourage photo submission we’re running annual prizes of half-price membership for photos submitted in two categories of ‘carp’ & ‘non-carp’.  Judges decision is final and it’s not always about the biggest fish, it might be the ‘prettiest’ fish or it might just be a good photo.

The 2015 winner of the carp category is Andy Flower for his magnificent 23lb mirror from Howell’s

and in the non-carp category Shaun Birnie gets a special mention for his fine 16lb Totham Pit pike & Dan Hilton for a splendid 10lb slab from the canal but the winner is Dan Thornett for his perch also from the canal, maybe not the biggest specimen (that’s the perch not Dan) but it’s a great perch photo

Keep those pictures coming and we’ll be pleased to pick the winners again next year.
