Fishing - Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a licence to go fishing?

No you don’t, but you cannot sell your fish. Keep migratory fish such as sea trout or salmon, or fish in bass nursery areas. If in doubt, ask your local Fishery Officer.

How do I set up my nets?

Either on the beach if you have a large range of tide, or from a boat as either a floating or sinking net. These will need to be anchored and buoyed for later retrieval. Avoid areas where there are swimmers, divers and seabirds.

How do I set up my pots?

Either as singles or several joined together. Set them on rough ground for lobsters or anywhere for crabs. Mark with floats for later retrieval.

When is the best time to use my pots?

Part-time or pleasure fishermen generally only fish during the summer months. Our pots will withstand rough conditions but it is best to check catches at least every other day.

What bait should I use in my pots?

Fresh fish bait for crabs and smelly bait for lobsters. Hard bait such as gurnards, ray backs or wrasse is good if there are lots of sea lice.

Can I sell the fish that I catch?

Unless your boat is a registered vessel you should not sell your fish.
