the moon and tides are linked .look a your tide book and look at spring tide s they always are on full or new moon.bigger tides are normally better fishing and they fall on full moons.
i dont think that its he moon itsself but maybe that bigger tides cover ground not covered on neep tides and stronger push of water might disturb ground more washing up more food for fish to eat ect......
as for wind any wind is ok bar THE EAST wind witch fish dont seem to feed on,never met any one how knows why?????

i suppose the reason for south/southwest winds fishing better is that these type of winds are warmer and bring the warmer currents up with them. it's possible to catch bass on north/north westerly winds also but as barry said the easterlies seem to just kill it completely. It's also worth sayin that they can be caught on any strength of tide it's just that the big ones seem to increase the chances.

Bass ban starts Saturday so i'll be givin it a crack tomorrow, more than likely have a post up tomorrow evenin bout blankin Embarassed

The Bass ban starts on the 15th of May to the 15th June Bass are protected during this time frame and you cannot fish for them if you are caught fishing for or have a Bass you are breaking the law and will face a heavy fine and your fishing gear confisated.
The ban was imposed to protect the Bass from over fishing and this is the time they spawn.

This is the time when all anglers should know the number of their local bailiff, we all know that there are those amongst us who regard Bass as easy money by selling them to shops and restaurants and now they will be out more than ever as most anglers will be respectful of the month ban. Keep an eye out for nets along the coast or any anglers with BASS in their possession.

if im fishing at night on tramore beach with crab with size 1 hook is this ok or not? i havent caught a bass yet so would not be too sure on what will say to the bailiff that i am fishing for bass, in about a week or so my other half will be going away so i plan on fishing alot so whats my best chance to get fishing without targeting bass or how do i not target bass???

well you will still get flats and the odd cod on the beach in tramore on crab but could knock into a bass try fish baits and fish for dogfish.you can also fish for conger and dogs off the rocks as well as wrasse and pollock.plenty of flounder to be caught in the eastury too.and on the off chance you do catch a bass by mistake take care and relesse it in the water if you can.still a lot fishing in the saleens today?

Bait Fishing

Post by gerrywalsh on Sun 16 May - 22:26

To be fair if you are bait fishing the front beach this is not targeting bass as there is a big range of fish that can be had there. As barry said if ya do knock into one be careful to return it as quickly as possible
