Can you clarify something.    Brackish water such as Polkey's Mill towards Breydon and thereabouts can you fish as near to sea fishing?     Just asking.

It's more to give the banks a rest and let the vegetation recover, the close season has never been able to safeguard fish as the species breed at different times to help stop interbreeding, if it's been a really mild spring lots of fish will already have spawned

I doubt its anything to do with giving the banks or vegetation a rest as the lakes and pits etc are hammered all year round. Seems a shame to me as March to June is prime nesting etc for the wildlife. Personally, I would be in favor for a close season on still waters for that reason.
The close season always used to be applied to still waters years ago so I dont see the logic as to why its just tidal waters now?
I know that the temperatures have a lot to do with spawning etc but again, no one seems to worry about that on still waters.
I know you wont catch spawning fish as they have other interests rather than eating, but after they have spawned they are hungry but probably out of condition and therefore more vulnerable so should be left alone.
The trouble is you cant tell fish to spawn between certain dates.
