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.

Little Parks turn for a trim up

With a big thank you to Jamie and Ryan the swims and pathway around Little Parks have now been trimmed up as they were getting quite overgrown.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before and after the trim up.

Some more good news is that the gravel hump on the access track where the landowner has laid an irrigation pipe has now been smoothed off.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and the leaking dam wall on Little Park Top Lake has been relined with clay and the whole area tidied up

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Further trim ups are already underway at Slough House Farm and Totham Pit and others are planned for Slough House West and various sections of the canal.

Aerial photos

I have added three aerial photos to our waters page, many thanks to Jamie for sending these through to me.

A hard match was fished at Totham Pit

A hard match was fished at Totham Pit with only two able to catch fish, Russell Samuels managed to land two nice Tench of 6lbs 3oz and 5lbs 3oz but he also lost three fish of a good weight. Following close behind him was Bill Woollcott with a massive Perch of 1oz 8drms which took him all of 5 seconds to land. Three other matchmen were unable to find any fish!!

Totham Pit treated with Siltex

Totham Pit was treated with Siltex over the weekend to try and improve the water quality and growth rates of the fish.  There are further plans to remove the weed that clogged up the shallows last season, if it returns this year, as the thick silt and de-oxygenation caused by the weed at night in the shallows are believed to be the main threat to the carp as the water warms up in the spring

The end of the season fast approaches
