Why Permit Fishing From BA Moorings?

Post by Miles » June 18th, 2018, 1:49 pm

I put a question to the readers and it is simply to do with fishing.
Should it be allowed on the BA Moorings? :roll:
By the Broads Authority's own admission there are not enough moorings for the bounty of boats during the high season, so why actively promote it from the moorings when it's true to say that it promotes conflict between boaters and fisherman. In this case both are the same people.
It is because of issues like this that I would prefer to see Mr.Packman of the B.A. actively visiting the moorings and Broads and speaking to boaters as opposed to remaining incognito to most people unless it is an opportunity to pose like a pseudo celebrity.
I appreciate many fisherman visit this forum andI would not want any to perceive my comments as being anti fisherman but most people like myself look forward to having a chilled out time on the boat without having to have a run in with occasional fisherman and remind them that they are obligated to make way for boats wishing to moor.

Because they believe, just putting up a sign saying Fishermen must give way to boats mooring will do the job..

Well, as I am sure you will agree it doesn't work lol.
A bit like the engine running signs, perhaps they are there to make the notice board look needed

Maybe the sign should say something like ....
“Fishermen must give way to boats. If you do that we will continue to let you fish here free of charge. Otherwise fishing will be stopped. Take your pick”

Coming into Sutton yesterday there were approximately two dozen rods out right across the navigation area and not one fisherman could see boats coming or going.
