Over the weekend some anglers spotted some non nationals using hand nets to catch coarse fish in the harbour at Virginia. They phoned the E.R.F.B. and an inspector was soon on the scene. He found around 40 hybrids in buckets. Gear was confiscated and on the spot fines issued (first offence). So far this year the board have issued 40 on the spot fines for offences committed on Ramor alone !!!

Well done to the Board. I think that they will need pitch tents on Ramor to deal with the situation there.

The unfortunate thing for other areas of the country is that the other Boards don't care about the waterways unless they hold precious Trout or Salmon.

Further to Ramor, when fishing it recently, we came across about 10 large bulk containers sunk into the reedline at the far end of the lough, cordoned off by 5 litre drums, strung across the bay. These IBC are 1000 litres, and used often for chemical storage. Why would they be in this location? It's the far end of Ramor, past the deep section, between the two large houses that border the shoreline, at the west end of the lough.

I have a photo; thought it very strange. Anyone have an answer?

And yes, the FN's are still poaching the harbour for roach and hybrids!!And some of the bays were stinking with slurry!! Crying or Very sad

The Fishery Board was at hand and made the FN's return their catch, there also seems to be a real problem with commorants that are feasting on the fodder fish in the harbour early morning and late evening.
