Ok chaps....this is a very sensitive issue we all face. Its happening all over the country and if it hasn't happened to you....rest assured it will.

I've created this thread for ALL of us to post photo's of Otter attacks...you may add the lake, area, size, cost any vital information that will help...

DON'T post words that will paint a bad picture of us Anglers, that wont help us at all.......

Baden Hall has now been affected by it, all kicked off on a Facebook post with vids of diving otters and dead specimens. Hopefully they act!

I live I the midlands and have fished in the Trent valley for a number of years my fav water in the midlands being Attenborough pits and they have a huge problem on there which leads me to have to admit that all the lakes I've fished north and south of these pits are looking right into the storm of killings in the future as there is no way of fencing these waters! such a sad time for the fishing in Notts its never going to be the same again. I also had a 30 lber carp from the river last season with all its tail and fins mauled. im afraid the only way moving forward is to fish a fenced fishery and maybe some of the mystic and magic is going to be lost in the sport.

otters are only doing what they are born for hunt and eat fish the money we pay for our fishing should be used to combat this problem and the fishery owners should get grants to help them to keep there stock from this happening carp fishing is quiet expensive and a lot of care of the fish has to be second to none but this problem is killing our sport and killing otters is not the answer fences need to be put up in all waters and rivers monitored and ditches its a major problem and help and funding is overdue its time to help our fishing instead of lining there own pockets fish are getting attacked and the good quality fishing is getting harder to find my fishery has erected a otter net and monitored all the time but this needs to be in every fishery especially the little quiet ones

A large percentage of fishery/syndicate owners are in it for MONEY only, all they care for is bottom line profit. There are measures of prevention that raise a word they despise COST. Maybe the past will come back where Carp Anglers Fishery owners are in it for the real reason I started in the late 80's The love of CARP Fishing

Apart from being a criminal offence all your doing is making space for the next family of otters to move in. It's certainly not something that I'd be going around telling people I'd done.

Perhaps read the last line of Joss' post #1 - "DON'T post words that will paint a bad picture of us Anglers, that wont help us at all......."

me and a mate got told a story the other day whilst fishing by a bailiff...that someone who owned a lake got a load of silverfish and pumped them full of paracetamol and left them all round his lake for otters and apparently it wiped the otters out..!!..apparently the otters insides cant cope with the paracetamol in their system

Sad news i heard today mate,a small syndicate water by me has been hammered by otters,my mate who fishes it said EVERY carp in it is now dead
My friend reckons they had been telling the owner to install fencing for the last 3yrs,citing experiences yourself and i have already suffered,its now 3yrs too late
The owner even had the audacity to say that a 100 increase in membership is to go on top of the 400 the anglers already pay
Needless to say he wont be getting many renewing their tickets

I saw a picture if that fantastic Northern common that Simon crow recently had at 39lb. A fish estimated to be 50 years old. Now dead, savaged by otters. Very sad.
