Fixed nets are defined as being fixed to the bottom of the sea in a permanent position by any method such as weights, anchors or stakes and it must be set so as not to be able to drift or move with any current.

Since producing low pitches usually requires a long air column or string, the string and wind bass instruments are usually the largest instruments in their families or instrument classes. Therefore any catches with unauthorised gears and catches with authorised gears over the authorized limit must be discarded. You are not allowed to catch and retain bass with any other gears, including nets that drift with the current or are capable of doing so. If you have been issued an authorisation you will be authorised to catch and retain bass with the gear types listed on your authorisation, subject to the specific limitations for each gear.

A bass musical instrument produces tones in the low-pitched range C4- C2. Basses belong to different families of instruments and can cover a wide range of musical roles.

These rules apply if you are fishing from a boat or from the shore. Bass are renowned as powerful fighting fish and battling one on a properly balanced bass rod can provide great sport.

If you are replacing a vessel that has a bass authorisation a transfer of authorisation will be considered providing the replacement vessel is no larger in engine size and tonnage. Where the single hulled replacement vessel is 8 metre or under in overall length the provision of no increase in engine size and tonnage does not apply. It is the responsibility of any vessel owner to seek relevant approvals from the MMO prior to making a commitment to purchase a new fishing vessel, where they are wanting to transfer any existing authorisation.

In recreational fisheries in ICES divisions 8a and 8b, a maximum of two seabass may be retained per recreational fisherman per day throughout the year.

The current catch uptake by that vessel will also be transferred – i.e. the catch limits will not be reset.

A UK fishing vessel may only carry one authorised fishing gear on a fishing trip when retaining on board. If you fish using more than one of the permitted gears in a single calendar month the lowest of the catch limits for the gears will apply. These are hard lures, generally made out of plastic, and can be floating or diving in design. Some plugs designed for bass fishing can be extremely expensive, costing upwards of £25 each! Other plugs are much more modestly priced and many anglers have success lure fishing for bass using relatively cheap spinners which are designed for mackerel or very inexpensive jelly eels and worms.
