Just watched Countryfile on BBC 1 where part of the programe was filmed in Jersey, and the use of Trot Lines demonstrated By Bob Tompkins a so called "fisherman". They showed a Bass that he said he would eat, if it was legal it was only just legal. When will these people realise that Shore trot lining and netting destroys juvenile fish.

Rant over :bangin: :bangin: :bangin:

I watched as well and thought the same as you, that fish was small and undersize, then the knob had the cheek to remark on how beautiful a fish it was, he needs to get a proper job like the rest of us.

Keith showed me and Tom the lines of rocks from decades past where static lines and traps were set in the gutters - really opened my eyes as you take rocks for granted without really looking for a pattern ...
Hi Alex,

Its not funny when you are working backwards when wading (as you know the tide in that area really storms in) and you start stummbling into rocks that are not supposed to be there. They also net these marks, bloody scarry when wearing chest eaders. Thats probably why I am going to buy a wet suit this spring, I am also going to start plugging these marks this year in the dark.

Hi Steve,

Bob Tompkins used to have a propper job in the 1970s, he was a "motor machanic" the inverted commas are because he was called Bob Dewhurst (after the butchery chain).
