Elusive Little London Tench

It’s been a mission of mine for some time to have caught at least one tench out of every Maldon water that holds one. All of the other lakes came fairly easy but the Little London Tench has eluded me for some years. Until this week when fishing at long range on a sliding waggler I got one at 4lb 1oz along with a decent Bream at 6lb 2oz (see gallery) and some nice roach.

Mission accomplished! 

I’d be interested to know if anyone has more than one Tench out of Little London in a sitting as they are very elusive, this one was totally unmarked and looked like it had never been caught before.

There’s no stopping Kelvin

All from Totham Pit today (Wed 13th Jun) from the swim directly behind the container on method feeder and 6mm white chocolate wafters. 8 Tench, including an 8lb 1oz monster (also my PB), 3 @ 6lb+, 2 @ 5lb+ and 2 under 5lb.


Also 3 Bream, 2 @ 6lb+ and 1 @ 5lb+ and a 1lb 3oz Roach

Kelvin’s latest catch

This weeks catch is from Little Park Main lake this time 2 decent Bream at 8lb 1oz and 6lb 9oz, 4 more at about 2lb 8oz each and a decent Roach.


Nice to see that the big old Bream in Little Park obviously had a successful spawn a few years ago, as I’ve never had small bream from the lake before.


Kelvin’s 8lb 1oz Little Park Bream.

Kelvin’s great year for Tench and Ide continues at Slough House Farm

Continuing a great year for Tench this time at Slough House with these six, biggest 4lb 9oz including (pretty sure) my old mate “Chin Tench”.


Also weighed these two Ide at 2-6-4 and 2-10-8 s two for just over 5lb.

 

I was after Roach but…

Thought I’d go down to see if I could get some Slough House roach on the long range light waggler, ended up with no roach, 2 bites, this carp and an ugly 3lb tench (see gallery) on single red maggot. Not quite the day I had expected but a good one nonetheless. Worryingly there were 2 Cormorants having a field day down there today.

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.
