The British Conger Club has recently laid down regulations regarding the weighing of Conger Eels caught at sea. 
The Club has adopted this regulation and it will appear in the Club Rule Book under General Angling Bye Laws.
CONGER EELS CAUGHT AT SEA

For the purpose of weighing specimens Conger Eels only may be weighed at sea and then released.

A photo of the captor with the fish and a photo of the fish in a sling, on the scales, showing the weight must be shown to a club official upon coming ashore. They will then enter the fish in the specimen book.

For the purposes of competitions Congers should be brought ashore, alive if possible.

Should an angler wish to retain a conger for eating , they are free to do so.

BASS REGULATIONS

Recreational fishing for bass

For recreational fishers from 1st January to 31st March 2019, and from 1st November to 31st December 2019 only catch-and-release fishing of bass is permitted. From 1st April to 31st October 2019 not more than one bass per person per day may be retained. Any additional bass should be returned immediately to the sea. In addition, the minimum conservation reference size of 42cm applies – any bass smaller than this must be immediately returned to the sea. These measures apply to fishing from vessels and from shore.

We have workshops for boat maintenance and fitting of keels by yourself if required, and secure storage areas for outboard engines and fishing gear. The area around Hastings uniquely offers a very wide variety of fishing, see our club records and photo gallery. You will be in good company in this very friendly club.  Our members come from all walks of life and can offer help and advice if required. Our membership fees are very reasonable.
