  1. Dear Stakeholder, As you may be aware, Defra has today published a consultation on the third tranche of Marine Conservation Zones (MCZs), in which 41 new sites and the addition of new features to 12 existing MCZs have been proposed. This is an ambitious and comprehensive tranche which will substantially complete our contribution to the ecologically coherent network of Marine Protected Areas around our coasts. If all of these proposed MCZs are designated, around 40% of English inshore and offshore waters will be protected, and the total for the UK as a whole will be nearly 25%. This will provide vital protection for the diverse array of wildlife in our seas. The consultation is now underway and you can give us your views here: https://consult.defra.gov.uk/marine/consultation-on-the-third-tranche-of-marine-conser/ Please respond by Friday 20th July for your views to be taken into account. We look forward to hearing from you. Yours sincerely, Marine Conservation Zone Team --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Do check this out, especially the Purbeck, Southbourne Rough & Studland Bay sites! Respond if you want to. Dave

    Black Bream project

    If anyone is interested this blog and videos show how Black Bream go about preparing to get a mate, spawning and the males looking after the nest http://www.mattdoggett.com/the-black-bream-project/ Would it be such a bad thing to ban catching Black Bream between April and June to allow the fish stocks to increase to allow us all to enjoy the sport for years to come?

    Black Bream project

    Agreed any ban must involve everyone RSA’s and commercial To look at very rough figures if there was a 3 fish limit take the average charter boat with 8 anglers = 25 fish (to round things up) out say 5 days = 125 a week x say 5 charter boats = 625 fish per week! Add all the private boats and you will soon be up around 800 fish per week You just need a trawler to sweep through and I suspect the number could easily double. Without knowing what the current fish stock levels are no area could sustain that number of losses.

    Mick Had a search on various forums but nothing similar symptoms as yours. Thinking about it, it could well be a sensor failing when it gets hot as it had cooled down by the time we got into Cobbs and worked ok.

    "Understanding Men" is a lot less bulky so I am told!

    Poole Bridge

    Just think of the environmental issues with all the traffic at a standstill, perhaps someone will sue the council in raising the pollution levels in Poole & Bournemouth They say buy an electric car but where to charge it locally and I expect they will charge you to park it let alone pay for the electricity to recharge.

    Poole Bridge

    They have got to spend the excess money before the end of March I think it is about time councils were run as a business and if they have saved some money by the end of the year it can be rolled over to fund something extra in the following year. I am sure that most counsellors would not have a clue about income and expenditure otherwise how come most departments overspend their budget? If I overspend my budget my business would have gone bust

    Photobucket pictures

    With Photoucket having disrupted the whole concept of sharing pictures onto forums I thought I'd try to find an alternative which works. Try this if you use Google Chrome. I've just followed these instruction and all the photobucket "upgrade" invisible image placeholders have gone back to images again, other than where folks have deleted their PB accounts! Open Chrome Click on the rows of small horizontal lines located in the top right hand corner or the white on orange up arrow top right if you have a later version of Chrome Then click on "more tools" Then on "Extensions" Then "Get more extensions" if you already have some, e.g. Ad Block. Type in "Photobucket embed fix" and hit the return key A link to "Photobucket embed fix" extension should appear. Click on it and you are done. Hope this helps some people Dave

    Photobucket pictures

    If you use Firefox try this fix Photobucket image problem. There is now an 'add-on' for Firefox users. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... ucket-fix/ seems to work fine. The photobucket hotlink in Opera browser is also working

    How are YOUR anodes?????

    I was surprised that the anode on the tilt ram rod is still there, could be that the rod is stainless steel similar to the prop

    Rod Repairs

    One of my boat rods required a new reel seat and when asking around I was pointed in the direction of Gary Allner. Garry lives up in Wallisdown and I took my rod to his home, he does collect rods from most local tackle shops. Garry rang me to say that he was having a problem in obtaining the same make reel seat but another make would fit ok. So went ahead with the repair and collected on Thursday night. What a superb job and cheaper fix than first quoted. Would recommend Garry to anyone who wants a quality repair Contact details are Gary Allner on 07944101577 Dave
