You are a naughty chap Iggy, mind you, I'm quite partial to a bit of that pink fleshed Bass myself Wink

Is that a pun, Iggy.
Everything to do with everything is to do with sustainable scale, with fishing being right at the top. Land food is controlled by owning land, sea food is up for grabs. I've never been taught about any species that hasn't over grazed itself into a tight spot, given the appetite. Maybe it's how the planet operates.

Tied up late in Poole, should have gone straight to bed but a few Mackerel for breakfast waved at me.

I used to gill net the Plym, Tamar and Sound off Mountbatten as a lad.

Selective use of mono for Sole sounds OK, but surface nets with small mesh do catch everything.

Last winter the English Channel was awash with netsmen decimating Bass from Dungeness to the far west, miles of nets strewn across the Channel.

Has anybody else been watching "the catch"? Makes you think about the fish you eat, it also explains why the share fishermen are such a hard bunch. The one they showed the other night was a gill netter working out of Newlyn, 15miles of nets, that's what it takes to pay the bills nowadays. Along with fishing in storms that would have any sensible chap tied up in harbour.

A big run of Codling through the Solent ATM, even catching them in the container port at Southampton, I am hoping to grab a few later in the week.

Been a slow start to fishing this summer with Mackerel being in very late had to work hard to catch a couple about a month back but they've been in in numbers now. Had a few Bass to three pounds plugging off the rocks. My mate had a four and a half last night I'm off to Cawsands area to do the same with him now.
One of my boys showed me a vid of someone hammering big channel mackerel out of Slapton beach huge shoal had pushed a big load of whitebait onto the beach with a huge shoal of big Mackerel right on the shore.

Had a nice Bass on the Plug about 3 pounds. I was down on the middle of Penlee but there was a proper head high swell running so could only fish a couple of gullies anything open to the sea was getting pounded, had a coule of proper showers from the waves. Lovely afternoon saw a few Fallow deer, Peregrine and Sparrow Hawks and a quick pint in the Rod and Line at Tideford on the way home cracking little pub.

A friend of a friend caught a double figure Bass the other night on a jelly worm muddled along the bottom, over two foot long! Feckin EA has banned taking any Bass at all for 2018, like we are the problem FFS!

Caught a load of Scad and Bass in Pompey Harbour. No Mackerel amongst them at all.
Tried a wee Scad free lined as a live bait under a big flat bottomed barge. No nibbles.

Was pleased to see a distinct lack of discarded fishing tackle on the rocks I think finally the message has got through to the idiots that used to think its ok to do.

I've caught about a dozen Bass this year spinning but only up to 2lnbs at best, returned all of them. Mackerel have been non existent although I haven't been out on the boat I've chucked a few feathers out and feck all about. All up Scotland apparently they caught no Mackerel 15years ago but are now up to 150thousand tonnes pa. last week I had a first in a lovely 2.5lb gilt head, took a rag bait meant for a Bass but I'll target them now, nicest fish I've ever eaten and fought like buggery.

Small squid and fish baits for the Bream. Caught a dozen mackerel in Millbay last night. Threw the small ones back, kept seven and turned in at midnight.
The dock was full of fish feeding like fook.
All on spinner, some good fish too. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Kill it, fillet and grill it.

I have not been fishing in years. Myself - when I was teen - and my old man used to go bass fishing a fair bit. I can remember digging for rag worms and all that. We used to drift fish on the River Fal, caught my biggest bass ever, a whopping 6 pounder, we also fished from one or two spots around Cornwall that were word of mouth places - one place I recall was where we had to climb down the cliff face using a rope, hilarious. The mackerel that we caught were used for bait, or food for ourselves and the cat. Good memories !!.

I was thinking of taking up fishing again, possibly next summer ?.

Not an expert by any means but took the lad to mountbatten breakwater on the rising tide this morning and bagged 5 mackerel between us with a couple little spinning rods, will be pan fried with a bit of salad very shortly, one of my favourite eating fish.
