New Minimum sizes
Southern Sea Fisheries have introduced new minimum sizes, all can be found here. The one that will affect us is Grey Mullet both Thick and Thin, the new minimum size is 42cm, it was 13 inches (33 cm) for both! Effective immediately (10 August 2021) the new size limit will be used.
Bass Regulations 2021
These are currently the same as 2020, catch and release during January, February and December, all other times you may keep 2 per day. Further information can be found clicking here.
Please ensure if you are fishing our competitions you have signed on BEFORE the start time of the competition and NOT at the weigh-in!
Entry fee is £5 plus a £5 optional pool, please inform when signing on if fishing for the optional pool.
The £5 entry fee is split £2 for the nominated fish and £3 to the prize fund (paid back at the presentation).
The optional pool will be paid out on the day (no carry over) and split 50% (Heaviest Weight), 30% (Best Specimen) and 20% (2nd Weight). If you have Heaviest Weight and Best Specimen you would win 80%, if you have Best Specimen and 2nd Weight you would win 50%, if only one person weighs in he wins the lot! If no one weighs in the optional pool will be paid back to everybody.
Please send me any photographs and I will try my best to include them in the Rogues Gallery.
If you catch a Tope from the boat (or shore) please can you measure (in inches preferably) the length from the tip of the snout to the tip of the tail and can you also record the girth at the widest point (usually in front of the dorsal fin). If possible can you get an approximate weight on the boat/shore so that I, the fish recorder, can compare some Tope formulas.
Smoothounds & Bass
Specimen points will be awarded for all measured fish (tip of snout to tip of tail)
THIS ALSO APPLIES TO FISH WEIGHED ON CERTIFIED SCALES AND RELEASED, PLEASE RECORD LENGTH OF SMOOTHOUNDS/BASS, THIS WILL THEN BE USED FOR MERIT POINTS AND NOT THE ACTUAL WEIGHT!
