Hooks

As long as it's not stainless any hook suits me. I reckon stianless hooks should be banned. If I lose a hooked fish I want to know that my hook will rot out pretty quickly and let the fish live on.

Hello again hauller, Please don't apologise for Scottish blinkers, you should wear them with great pride. I lived and worked on the island of Unst in Shetland for 3 years back in the late 70s, and they were the best years of my working life, (I'm retired now). My wife and I loved Shetland and everyt...

Hi again Euge, I don't know what the Byelwas are in your sea fisheries district, which I presume is regulated by the Eastern Sea Fisheries Committee. I've been on the Net and found their phone number which is 01553 775321, so why not give them a bell and ask the simple question....."Could you please...

Shellfishing Byelaws

Hi there hauler and hi there Euge, It's great to find another shell fisherman here, hauler and another member whose interested enough to enquire about it. I'm afraid I have to correct you though hauler on the legal side of things. You advised Euge that you could use 12 pots and land 4 lobsters per d...

Worms!!

mrix is dead right. in fact I would go further and say that most fish rather than a lot of fish have worms in them, both in the gut and in the flesh. My experience is that pelagic species suffer from worms far more than demersal species. The pollack, cod, mackeral and bass I catch, ( the last of whi...

Weather and fishing

Hi there, Down here we call an east wind a 'Beastly Eastly' and I know lots of my sea fishing buddies will not bother to go fishing if the wind is in the east. And sure enough, the days I have bothered to go out in my boat on an east wind I might as well have not bothered. Why? well I haven't got a ...

Holes in the sea bed!

Hi there, I don't know your bit of sea at all, but I can certainly sympathise with your problem about local fishing marks. There are reputedly several "cracking spots" around my bit of sea that the old hands will mention after a couple of beers in a quiet corner of the bar, but try to get out of the...

Shrimp bait rigs

Hi there..... I've never fished in Ireland, but I use Mustad shrimp bait rigs all the time, and yes, they do deliver. The Mustad shrimp bait 4 and 5 hook rigs are absolutely the tops for getting bait fish on the boat, and round here that's almost exclusivey what they're used for. Mackerel, launce, s...

Sea Fishing - Big rays

Hello everyone, Reading through this post reminds me of the time I worked in the Shetland Isles from '79 to '81. A good friend of mine there, typical of the Shetlander, had a small croft with sheep and ran a fishing boat, in my friend's case longlining commercially for common skate. I mentioned to h...
