Last week I took a group of regulars to a reasonably well know mark to target Rays, we had a few while we were there and here's a nice picture of these three all caught at the same time, biggest was 26lbs.. All these three fish we returned in the spirit of 'Catch and Release'. The anglers were delighted with their catch and equally happy to watch these magnificent fish swim away,,, So then I expect you can understand how absolutely furious and gutted I was to hear that shortly after this trip a commercial boat set tangle nets on the same bank and caught approx 100 Rays!!! The result has now completely destroyed that mark now!!! What chance do we have??? Another example, last year we were sole fishing, a local commercial boat started trawling all around us, in front, to the sides and behind us, so close... within 10 yards of my boat!!! I for one do not feel sad when I hear that Commercial inshore fishing is on the decline, the sooner the better as far as I am concerned, the effect and damage to the sea and fish stocks that it has is so disproportionate, its about time someone stood up and voiced the reality!
