    one bass a day from October

    A load more free lunches and another set of guidelines I expect.
  3. A notice from the Marine Conservation Society: Dear Friend, Overfishing and damaging fishing practices have reduced many fish stocks and harmed the seabed, threatening marine wildlife and coastal communities. Now we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to fix our fisheries and make sure our seas are full of life long into the future. The UK government has opened a public consultation asking how we think they should take care of fish stocks after Brexit through a new Bill. We have a unique chance to tell decision-makers that UK fisheries must be sustainable. CLICK HERE TO ACT NOW Tell the Secretary of State for the Environment, Michael Gove, why we need sustainable fisheries: the whole marine ecosystem, the fishing industry and our coastal communities all depend on it. We’ve made it easy for you to participate. Our pre-filled response covers all of the areas we think should be at the core of the new Bill. Please act now - you only have until the 12 September!

    Hopefully catch you out there Dave. Not sure if we'll head East or West yet, flip a coin I guess!

    Is Alderney fished out?

    Compared with a beam trawler which could be out every day of the week? I’d have thought recreational anglers wouldn’t touch the sides (much like the bass ban).

    Is Alderney fished out?

    I’d say nothing much at all to do with bigger and faster boats (this last trip I didn’t see anyone fishing other than club boats and maybe one small Guernsey boat - and that was on a perfect forecast and bank holiday!) and more to do with trawlers. That’s a pure guess though!

    Just spoken with them - they are open all weekend from 8am but with the tides he reckons the latest we could get in for fuel on Sunday would be 2pm and the earliest Monday morning 10am.

    Charlie, did Mainbrayce give any insight into their opening hours being a bank holiday weekend? Ideally we'd look to fuel up at some point Sunday afternoon/Early monday morning (tide permitting) but what with Sunday being Milk-a-Punch day I'm not sure there will be many sober people on the island!

    That definitely looks promising.

    Not a lot of detail on Silver Spray's monthly email which has just gone out but it does say at the top **Spaces left for Alderney in June and July, flattie fishing was good the first trip across this year** Which is promising.

    Anyone have any idea what the rules on bass caught in Alderney are with them not being an EU state?

    Bass Regs 2018 - C&R

    Presumably if we deep hook one and it unfortunately doesn’t survive we are expected to throw it back dead? I’m not sure how that sits with me really - a real waste.

    Alderney 2018

    Most places on the island are quite understanding about postponing and cancellations which happens more often than not but check with wherever you book that they are too. I’ll be staying on board but have stayed in the Simerock before (probably would look to stay somewhere else if I stayed in the island again). Aiming for same dates as Charlie. Crew are living it up in the Braye Beach hotel

    Some big (12inch+) wrecking booms like these https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-5-HEAVY-DUTY-WRECKING-Anti-Tangle-Clear-extra-strong-booms-13-long-45-bend/282880204157?hash=item41dcf95d7d:g:kZMAAOSwicpaebPA and some 6inch sidewinders will do you. If you get a pack of the “Cod Squad” and the “Bass Pack” they’re assorted so you’ll get 6 colours to play with https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sidewinder-Sandeel-Lures-Sandeels-Bass-Lures-Cod-Fishing-Lures-6-or-4/221849631045?hash=item33a744b945:m:m6fHjXO1uIW74-RJ0ChJQQA As Martin said - you couldn’t be going with a better skipper. Edit to add - could be worth taking a heavier rod too, 20/30lb for the Tope fishing off speedy rock out there (plus of course if Charlie gets his “conger fever” on the way home)
