If the trawlers are up and down they will be taken the best of the sole (ba*****ds) there should be a law stoping them comming within a certain distance and up rivers like the bottle neck at Lloyds, the fish have no future.
The Medway can produce some cracking fish, but has declined every year.

Hi Dave, not sure but they were trawling all last year. I came back from a night session at Sandwich and decided to use up some black opposite the Sunn pier next to Scotts timber yard around 7am and a trawler passed 3 times in 2hours.
how many fish are discarded by these guys.

They have been stopped in the Thames from coming past Cliff creek, so they can't net the light house bay any more so that should produce some good bass and sole results over the next few years.
