This is an honest question based on something Mike33 told me the other night. Apparently the last time he was in Scotland fishing a sea loch he was told by a local that he should not be fishing without a license. I have heard of no such law but obviously dont want to end up in jail in Scotland. So if Im fishing for sea fish such as bass, pollack, mackerel, conger etc in a Scottish Sea loch, do i need a licence ? Obviously If I caught a sea trout or Salmon I would return it and will not specifically set out to target these fish, but if one jumps on my new surface popper, how can I prevent that ?? Please dont guess the answer, as there is nothing worse than being fed duff information.
