    Club Cod Comp November 17th.

    I see the predictions show almost no tide in Freshwater Bat between 10 am and 4 pm. Is this beneficial or detrimental to fishing? Fishing on the drift?

  13. Welcome to your Sea Newsletter Super trawlers in the Channel: how worried should we be? There has been a lot of noise over social media, and elsewhere, about a super trawler spotted operating in the English Channel off Worthing in the past month. At 150 metres long, the Margiris is huge and presumably fishing for mackerel. Not far away is the Annie Helina, a Belgian factory trawler of a similar size. With both boats hoovering up vast quantities of fish daily, Angling Trust Director and passionate sea angler Tim Macpherson comments on what it could mean for fish stocks and how it could affect sea anglers in the south. Read: Tim Macpherson's view on super trawlers in the Channel Survey reveals sea angling priorities Respondents to our Marine Survey say they would like the Angling Trust to make communication, supporting campaigns, helping to get more people fishing and hosting of sea angling forums as our main priorities. More than a third of the people invited took part, with 747 respondents partially or wholly completing the questions. Read the full story Where to recycle your line Are you recycling your fishing line and spools? There are now hundreds of recycling bins located across the country where anglers can take their unwanted line. And if there's not one convenient to you, there's the option to post it. All the information about how to get involved can be found on the Anglers' National Line Recycling Scheme website.

They undertake great migrations each year. It is currently illegal for anglers to target tuna in UK waters.
