It is sorely tempting but the thing is the one thing you will do is get nicked!!!

There isn't half as many bass in there as there used to be. Most of em have been pinched!

When they were first put in there by the sealife centre they were mega skinny, Fish that should be around 8lb would be lucky to scrape 4lb.

Been in there a few years now and got a very good little eco system going on in there.

Loads of baitfish, wrasse, smelt, bream. in there now

The bass are nice and healthy now, Some real fat fish in there.

They have bread and now have loads of baby bass in there,

Those fish will take almost, Seen em take bread, whole ice cream cones, Even malteasers and other sweets.

Went diving in there last summer just to see what was actually in there... only saw a couple of relatively small bass (about a lb or so)... think the bigger ones were hiding from me!.. but also saw pollack, bream, some nice flounders, various species of goby (which were the most abundant fish in there) corkwing wrasse, some quite big ballan wrasse (about 2-3lb) a few goldsinney wrasse and a shoal of smelt (which look absolutely amazing underwater).

There were also a few shore crabs and the odd large spider crab too... its mostly a muddy bottom with rocks all along each side wall, as well as a few old plastic chairs, traffic cones and other usual rubbish that you'd expect to find!

Took a few pics whilst I was in there so have attached a few here for interest.
