Harold,
A good question and a lot of people appear to be using the temperature as a guide. I certainly don't begin to know why but the usual reason I see for fish actually feeding is the presence of food...crabs...baitfish etc. Maybe it's the temperature affecting them which controls the feeding habits?? It's when you get a post like yesterdays (i think it was yesterday) with catches of bass in the north of Scotland of 14 and 17 fish it makes you question things ...but I'm sure there are local peculiarities that work for some people but don't work in other areas. This should start a good debate though.........

So what is turning the bass on to feed up in the North of Scotland?

Are they after the sand eels which might be feeding on something else or the local population of lug worms??

Spot on guys but we were talking much further north than is on those images. Interesting to see the warmth in the Solway though..probably due to the shallow depth around Sheerness and a bit of sun on the beaches maybe.

Apologies if I seem to be questioning everything I'm just trying to get it into my thick head. There are obviously good local guides with temperature which work but I'm trying to understand whether it's the bait food that has the biggest problem with temperature or the Bass. Just seems funny when Bass are caught in the North of Scotland and near me in the East riding (where there definitely isn't any gulf stream) 4 weeks ago in colder conditions??
