Thanks. I'll buy some & pop them on the plugs I have. I pike fish as well so be interesting to see the difference.
The latest on the bass situation is that from January to June:
1. Sport anglers will not be allowed to keep any.
2. Commercial fishing for them will be stopped for 2 months then normal service will resume for them.
This is a letter to George Eustice MP from the Cornish Federation of Sea Anglers:

Quite what will happen during the 2 months to those caught as bycatch by the commercials in view of the discard changes I don't know.
