We have a right to fish and a right to collect bait for our personal use. However, there
are many environmental pressures on out bait collecting areas and in order to preserve
the right we currently enjoy, we must as a conservation based federation ensure that we
act responsibly when gathering bait.
IFSA Leinster is asking all clubs and members to adopt this bait collecting Code of
1. Backlill all holes so that the ground can be re-populated
2. Do not dig around moorings
3. Do not dig or lay bait traps in such away that other users of the habitat will be
4.Take account of the bait you are extracting and only remove sufficient for your
personal use
5. Do not dig in sensitive habitat areas
These measures will not only protect the habitat and our sport but will also
ensure that the bait grounds continue to produce into the future

Totaly agree with bait collecting guide lines but if we keep going down with size limits an delibritly target nursery beds as comp venues we won t have fish to catch with our renewed bait beds we ll be fishing for minnows
