The Angling Trust are urging people to apply for licences. They say that if they can demonstrate that there is over-subscription for licences, it strengthens their hand in getting Defra to grant more.

The license will never be over subscribed as you have to clearly demonstrate what non lethal measure you have taken. Most people give up at this stage as they cannot be bothered to provide the evidence based required.

You need to keep a detailed log of what number of cormorants or goosanders are doing, e.g. roosting, fishing, swimming etc.

There is of course another side of the argument whereby in some part of the country the numbers are significantly down so your request for a license will be declined on that bases.

This is not really about Pikelines any more, so lets move it to 'Pike Fishing'.
