    Only had the heavier gear available Rob, what surprised me was that they wouldn't take feathers that had silver foil in them! Whatever the gulls were taking were very small and silver.

    Well I " forced " myself to get out of bed and get motivated to go fishing!😴😴 First stop a fuel up and then I'm off out to chosen area see whats about. No whiting, just doggies, straps and couple of pouting was all I could find. Was watching a big flock of seagulls diving and coming towards the boat to within about 20 yards, catching whitebait I think. Could see fish swirling on the surface , put down maccie feathers but no good so changed to sabikis and bingo!!!! I caught around 60 bass , it was like catching mackerel as the bass were coming up 3 or 4 on hooks at a time, the biggest was about 1.5lb , no biggies but what fantastic sport was had! .......And then it just stopped and not another fish caught!! Back in for 3.30 and a wash down......worth getting up after all!😁

Thank you for providing input in the consultation process. A high level and quality of additional data was received by the Authority following the public pre-consultation on net fishing management, held between October and December 20181. Members, through an Authority Working Group, have considered the additional evidence, and have subsequently been working on revising their recommended measures and the Authority, at its meeting on 13th June 2019, has resolved to; i. Introduce new net fishing restrictions across harbour and estuarine areas and in the vicinity of piers; and ii. Increase the minimum legal size for grey mullet species. The Authority is currently in the process of engaging at a representative level with potentially affected parties to outline what changes have been made and the evidence used to reach these determinations. Under Defra’s IFCA byelaw guidance2, all IFCA byelaws must be accompanied by an Impact Assessment. This assessment should set out the anticipated costs and benefits of the proposed measures, including the identified fisheries, nature conservation, sustainable development, environmental, social, and economic implications. The Authority has a duty, within protected sites, to manage fisheries in a manner that meet the conservation objectives of those sites. The Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) is a designated feature of the River Avon Special Area of Conservation and the River Itchen SAC. The species is also included as a notified feature in the Sites of Specific Scientific Interest (SSSI) that underpin these designations, and the Atlantic salmon and the brown/sea trout (Salmo trutta) are referenced within the citations of further SSSIs in the district. The effects of any planned activities, including the proposed change in management, are assessed through a Habitats Regulations Assessment or a SSSI assessment (within a SSSI) to establish whether the conservation objectives of designated sites can be met. Natural England, as the Government’s statutory nature conservation advisors, are being consulted on the conclusions of these assessments that have been undertaken by the Authority. We are also working closely with the Environment Agency in this process. 1 www.southern-ifca.gov.uk/consultations 2 http://www.association-ifca.org.uk/Upload/About/ifca-byelaw-guidance.pdf Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authorities will lead, champion and manage a sustainable marine environment and inshore fisheries, by successfully securing the right balance between social, environmental and economic benefits to ensure healthy seas, sustainable fisheries and a viable industry.
