Items found at Little Parks and Howells

We have a few found items, a set of 2 keys with ZOO embossed on them found over Little Park , also got a section of a bed chair leg left over Howells and there is a pair of glasses that were found over Little Park a couple of weeks ago.  Pictures of these items can be found on our lost and found page.  Please contact Jamie if any of these items belong to you.

Al’s big silver

This rather nice roach (or hybrid?) fell to two sweetcorn haired to a size 12 under a locslide float.  Here’s the obligatory ‘fish on a landing net and unhooking mat with float and rod for scale :-D ’ photo.  Didn’t have my scales with me (again!) runs about 31/32 cm long, the locslide float is 15cm long so there’s a measure.


Other than some pesky perch and a few more hand size roach a quiet day…. apart from the carp going doolally spawning and thrashing about.
 

As an aside this is my first year back regular fishing since I was a lad of 13/14 :-) so far this year I’ve had a 13lb pike the other week, a 5lb+ tench out of Rook Hall and a 10.6 common out of Little Park (that’s one of my personal goals for this year done a double carp, am still up for the 20lb pike) – Al.

Possible traffic disruption on Sun 25th Sep

Members are reminded that the Maldon Half Marathon is being run on Sunday 25th Sep and this might disrupt the flow of traffic near some of our fisheries such as the Railway Pond, Howells and Little Park.  Any member looking to drive through Maldon or Heybridge could get delayed.  For more info and a map of the route please see http://www.maldonhalfmarathon.com/.  Members heading back towards Maldon after the Howells carp match might need to find an alternative route.   Thank you to Dennis Sherwood for drawing this event to my attention.

Please don’t dump leftover bait on the bankside

Members are reminded that dumping unwanted bait on the bank at the end of a session is breaking rule 7.3 – ‘Surplus bait must not be left on the bank’ as this encourages rodents around our fisheries and most of the rats are large enough already.
Our bailiffs are on the lookout for the couple who fished peg 16 at Little Park and departed leaving this pile of bait behind:

Dennis Penn Trophy will be re-scheduled

Due to dreadful weather on Tuesday 31st May the Dennis Penn Trophy at Little Parks was cancelled and will be fished on another day.  Once Keith has decided when the date will be posted here.

Little Park boosted by small Commons from Howells

We had a good day over Howells, the figures are a total of 462lb of small Commons moved to Little Park.  49 Commons totalling 442lb went into Little Parks main lake mostly averaging 10lb, some slightly smaller, and 20lb of small Commons went into the top pond.


Four of the 49 Commons moved from Howells to Little Park main lake.
