    January Apologies

    Sorry guys, I’m not going to make it tonight. I was going to report that on Dec 17th 2019 the 2020 Bass Regs we’re agreed in Brussels. In 2020 the bag limit will be 2 fish, with the season running from 1st March to 30 November. As in previous years, this hasn’t been ratified yet, but once it has I’ll let you know.

    Junior Comp 10 or 11th August

    Was hoping to beg a ride out with my 2 (last year as a junior for Sam?) if anyone is feeling charitable, please? But, it's currently looking a bit blowy on Saturday. Depends whether it comes in earlier on Thurs/Fri, or ends up lasting all weekend I suppose? Sent from my SM-J530F using Tapatalk

    Poole Bay Oil Rig

    Regardless of whether you think the rig is good or bad, you might expect it to do what it is authorised to do. Well, it does whatever it likes apparently! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-dorset-47380239?SThisFB Sent from my SM-J530F using Tapatalk

    Under 10m fleet consultation

    Please consider responding to the consultation that DEFRA are running on bringing in a requirement for the under 10 metre commercial fleet to record their landings. As they currently don't have to, the MMO are unable to enforce their landing gear regulations. As a result, CEFAS estimate real landings to be 3 to 10 times the MMO figures. To respond, you will need to answer question 7 in the pdf by emailing catchrecording@marinemanagement.org.uk by the deadline of 1 April 2019. Pdf here: https://consult.defra.gov.uk/mmo/consultation-on-the-introduction-of-catch-recordin/

    Oil rig in the bay

    The problem is they quoted 6700 tons of chemicals initially. It’ll be at least double that now. So that’s 16 tons of biocide. It’s for bacterial control, but who knows what else it’ll affect? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    one bass a day from October

    I have received the following from Robert Clark, Chief Executive of the SIFCA (as a member of the RASG) at 17:45 today: Recreational Limit on seabass The European Commission has considered a proposal for a Council Resolution amending Regulation (EU) 2018/120 as regards fishing opportunities for European seabass. The proposal is to introduce a daily bag limit of one fish per day for recreational fishermen applicable in October – December 2018 amending the current restriction. Once that amendment has been published in the official journal the regulation will apply directly. Once published Southern IFCA shall raise awareness of the regulation change. I am advised that the MMO will also update their website. The proposal is as a consequence of new evidence revising down the estimate of bass mortality associated with recreational fishing (as we discussed at our recent meeting) and also because of the socio and economic importance of the species to bass anglers. A positive development! As far as I can see, the document that has been linked to is, as it says on it's title page, the proposal, and not the Official Journal. Sent from my SM-J530F using Tapatalk

    one bass a day from October

    With all the previous regs, the new regs are approved but it takes a while for the enforcement powers to catch up, and until they do the old regs are still in force. There are a few weeks to go before we get to Oct 1st, so hopefully that will be long enough. Until any changes are publicised by AT, SIFCA etc, I would advise members to stick to the old regs.
