Guys let me try n put it another way then.
the reason the channel was fishing crap was because the irish box was getting trawled heavy every day etc thats the reason the channel didnt have many cod. the goverment put a quota on trawling the north sea once tha quota was full they couldnt go and trawl the area or if the did then they would face a heafty fine.
thats another reason why dungy chesil fished so well a couple of years ago.
 
i dont agree with what you said about the trawlers al tbh yes they know when the fish should be in but they wont go out trawling the area unless its worth there while
 
once the shore anglers and boat anglers start putting reports up of plaice comming out from those areas thats when the trawlers will also come out.
 
3 years ago in mid feb there was loads of reports comming out then what happend ? the trawler came out and had xxx amout of plaice in other words they rapped the sea bed of all fish and think it was something 365 kg of plaice that they took in 1 hit,hence why the fishing at eastney aint been the same since then and i dont think it will return to its better days for a number of years tbh.
 the trawlers wont try and net brandown cause of the rocks further out to sea which will destroy the nets hence why they do it at eastney.
 
ive sat over the years watching all the forums and waiting and waiting and its been proven by anglers reporting that the trawlers have been out all along eastney smashing the sea bed up killing th efish holding features,distroying there habitats etc.
 
Now i no i aint wrong in this what so ever its now the end of feb and this is a fact that there aint been hardly any reports of plaice comming out there has prob been only a hand full of plaice that have been caught and that there has been no reports of any trawlers trawling eastney plus the boat boys are struggling,the blocks are even fishing crap.
we use to get the plaice in mid feb every year and they would be gone by mid march its not going to happen this year as there bu**er all about.
 
ray you say 2 years ago the channel was fishless ? nope the channel has never been fishless as there has always been rays congers,huss,sole,bream,tope,etc etc in the channel.
if its fishless ray have a look at my report back in april 2009 when i had 10.2lb cod from the channel lost another as well and had a few smaller fish. the channel has never been void of fish this year the channel has came back to what it use to be like years ago and may it long continue,plus with the added bonus of more fish comming further up the channel.
 
If i was to fish the channel everyday and i have done that many times before i wouldn blank as there is always somewhere i could go on any state of the tide that would produce fish for me,rays,congers,cod,sole,brill,turbut,huss,giltheads.wrasse,pollock,etc etc its knowing the area and knowing the venues and i guess im kinda lucky as i know the channel better than most i guess peob to the point i could tell you when to fish batterypoint what state of tide what bait will out fish the other baits being used etc
 
ive fished the top end of the bristol channel for prob 25 years week in week out month n month out etc thats why my catch rate is so high on the bristol channel
 
but thats a different story all together.
Where are those fish!!!

Perhaps the lack of reports on forums is so that the trawler boys don't know when to go fishingLOL
If you think that trawlers have only fished eastney for a few years you are very much mistaken they have trawled this area for in excess of 100 years yet every year decent fish are caught by someone. Explain!

Al i know they trawl the whole of pompey waters,selsey,witterings,iow etc etc as thats how thye get there dosh ..
 
your missing the point once again Al (must be an age thing LOL) i said in brief that the trawlers have smashed up the sea bed at eastney. that thye wont come and trawl untill there is more reports of plaice comming out to make it worth there while trawling . the reason for the lack of plaice fishing is simples 1 trawlers they  catch and kill everything in there nets even undersize fish wont stand a chance in the nets they will be gettign crushed under the bulk weight of the rest of the fish.
 
If they could put a 2 mile bann on the trawlers then perhaps we would of had better sport from the beaches.
 
Ray lmao see once again your wrong AGAIN typical

No they were still catching cod 3years ago and have always been catching cod from the bristol channel ray just over the past 10 years it wasnt that good to compare to 15 years ago when it was fish a cast,and the reason its getting back to its formal old days is the goverment have put a quota on trawling the irish sea were the bristol channel get there cod from and the north sea is where you get your cod from simples.

the channel has been superb for cod this winter but i can see that changing soon aswell. the mount of reports ive seen where people are keeping 1/2lb codling is unbelievable. ive proberly seen 50 reports where they are bagging up on "pot noodle" codling and keeping them all, photos to prove this is the case. how long can that survive?

in my opinion its down to weather, sea and air temp etc why the fish turn up late or early, or not at all! plus along eastney sea front by st georges rd might get trawled but apprently the blocks dont get netted at all due to the blocks getting blown up and scattering around the sea bed. ive heard that they put pots down not nets so it shouldnt have to much of an effect around the blocks anyways.

Hugh the channel is fishing its nuts off for cod most people are catching loads of 3-5lb'er and putting them back,only fish that are being gut hooked are being kept.
I know of at least 40 doubles comming off from around the channel from Battery point to minehead beaches and this is not come by forums before i came i had 5 doubles from the shore a couple of mates have had doubles the biggest ive seen was from a mate of mine from brixham who caught a 17lb from battery point but he posted it as he caught it from sand point lmao and fair play to him for doing that.
Ive had a call from a mate who claims he had 1 of 22lb from norht devon on crab but i never got to see the pic tho so it might be b/s but what fish ive seen my self being caught have been decent doubles in the 10lb to 17lb range yep there has been loads of smaller 1s comming out and yep loads of anglers have been keeping them as well. i will only keep gut hooked fish that are bleeding other than tht they go back in to hopefully grow bigger

The bristol channel is getting cleaner as each year goes by only last year there have been plaice caught of clevedon pier and someone even caught a mackeral from there as well,smooth hounds are getting more an dmore common as well as spurdogs all starting to appear from the upper reaches of the bristol channel. to confirm this have a look at clevedon pier web site at the catch reports
 
The channel will never have clear water like pompey or chesil cause of the tidal current being the 2nd highest and fastest tide in the world. portishead marina they have been catching more and more mullet and pollock and there has even been some rays of different types being caught from there,only cause the boat anglers have been putting the fish into the marina

I see your point in the two mile limit make the trawlers go out and work for there living that will then give sea anglers a bit of inshore sport
