I'm not sure but my guess is, assuming you're talking about cod. I think fish migrate due to water temps and food. Cod come this far south as our waters cool. In the Thames they come up for a food bounty of spratt, so we catch them coming in but then catches slow as they gorge on spratt. As the water warms and the spratt run out they migrate north again, this migration north is the spring cod run. I've read of fantastic catches last year the Thames and same for this year. I think the same happens in the bristol channel.
Dunno if this is exactly true based on science but my best explanation!!!
