The channel isnt getting a chance to breathe this year, its very sickening :nonono:

Send me a pm with the area you saw the nets if thats ok mate.

Sorry to hear your bike got half hinched too.

I was going out in my boat today and rapped that net around my prop opposite smite, it was low tide 3 foot under my keel (restricted movement) and the net was right across the channel.
Had to cut the net free, not easy and not helped by an irate net owner saying he was in the right to block the entire channel!

Please can we have no more posts about doing damage to nets. If anyone considers a net to be illegally placed then it should be reported to the authorities.

thats weird dukey. if he isnt selling fish him and his friends must be eating a hell of a lot. the other option is, the fish are going into crab pots?. the fact of the matter is, if a boats screw is likely to get fouled it could result in a nasty accident to any one of dozens of you lads launching from the slip.

Back in the seventies we went to fish the yatch club at Roe Island. Sat there waiting for the tide on a foggy morning we heard the sound of an engine. A trawler came slowly up the channel from seaward and disappeared in the fog. An hour or so later as the tide began to fill the channel he came back with his otter boards scraping either side of the channel. We all blanked that day. Wonder why?

Yep ..seen a few small boats trawling right up to the shore down at hilpsford ...one of them was lucky not to get snagged (or worse) on the old breakwater stakes.

That is actually true. I've enquired in the past to the fisheries.

Ludicrous in my opinion.

Nope. Heretofore means up till now. so the old ones are killed off and new ones now apply.

it mainly means gobbledegook, and its more complicated by the fact that when you are below the dudden area, the byelaws change. but if you want to simplify the barrow channel situation, the notice board by the slipway makes good reading:thumbs::thumbs:
