    Lets hope some of it finds its way down here cause at present its v. scarce this way. Unless its there and we cannot catch it cause its on sprat or something but we havnt seen many since june now south of Scarborough.

    Then why haven't I caught any baby codling for years, we used to catch & release loads of undersize fish many years ago. Its because they've been replaced by Whiting because the cod that used to eat them arn't around anymore.

    It's a bit nieve ( if that's how it's spelt) to be publicising stories of big cod catches. Every boat that can get out will be hammering them if its true. As already stated when the cod are in numbers closer in I might just believe that cod stocks are back.

    Yeah it must be quota time :whistle:

    We know the state of things. We also know that if there's a good shoal of cod turns up they will get hammered.
    Same old same old.

    could answer this in one word , BULL-----.

    usual crap from the fishermen themselves [or the sff ;scottish fishermen federation; who represent them.
    guess it must be the time of year that greed comes to the fore and they try and get their quotas enlarged ,
    funnily enough the sff didnt have much to say when the boys from north of the border were caught red handed catching millions of pounds worth of over quota mackerel and selling them through the back door .
    wouldnt believe a word from them as they have only one intrest and thats the fishermens wallets.

    frnk.

    Wouldn't have anything to do with this then. I know it's old news now but they certainly know how to look after fish stocks up there!

    thats the one firefly.
    the only thing about that was the fines were a lot less than what they made from the illegal actions,
    couldnt get my head around that one,
    will sure put the next lot off. NOT.

    You're right about the fines Frank, doesn't deter anyone they are still well into pocket.
    This was a great thread I followed with disbelief, I know they have to make a living and get well paid for what is probably one of the most dangerous jobs going, but is this really necessary? http://www.whitbyseaanglers.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=12.0 What's going to be left of anything at this rate in 10/20 years? I probably won't be around but my grandkids might like the odd fish for the table without having to re-mortgage to get one.

    think the skippers that were involved in this should have had their licences taken away and never allowed to fish again.
    same for the fish proccessors ,
    this was greed at its worst ,no grey areas or sorry we didnt know we were over the quotas ,just well organised breaking of the rules put there to protect the stocks and the people who rely on the fishery for there living.
