    Went with Arthur today we tried just off the ramp with nothing doing so then moved to next spot and after moving back and forward around the drop off we found a school in 14 feet of water. Ended up with 41 bass by 7.30. The fish were only small with largest around 35cm and about half under 30cm. I decided to check our redclaw pots and then look for some larger fish. Got a feed of redclaw for Arthur but could not find another fish. There were too many redclaw for Arthur and as I did not want any we gave the rest away at the ramp. Sorry no photos. Cheers Ray

Search Moreton Bay Shellfish Recycling Centre officially launched 11 November 2018 Comments 0 Comments OzFish Unlimted's Robbie Porter helping to restore fish habitat one shell at a time in QLD's Moreton Bay. Queensland's Minister for Agricultural Industry Development and Fisheries, Mark Furner, recently welcomed the efforts by fish habitat specialists OzFish Unlimited and their major partner BCF for creating better awareness and funds to help restore fish populations, and to improve the health of Australia's degraded waterways. Speaking at the official launch of the Moreton Bay Shellfish Recycling Centre, Minister Furner acknowledged the retail giant's new national "Give Back to Habitat" campaign; which has already generated over half a million dollars and helped fund dozens of fish habitat projects across the nation. “Healthy habitats mean healthy fish. It’s great to see OzFish and BCF partnering to promoting this message.” “The ‘Give Back to Habitat’ initiative is a fantastic way of getting the people who know our rivers and oceans better than most, recreational fishers, involved and contributing in a meaningful and positive manner.” OzFish Unlimited’s Founder and CEO Craig Copeland said the Recycling Centre, that was built on land donated by the Port of Brisbane, was a practical and productive way to rebuild shellfish reefs after decades of over-harvesting, but also critical in bringing back hectares of fish habitat. “This centre is where we accept oysters from local restaurants and seafood suppliers, which are then cleaned and treated for disease and pests and created into habitat that is deployed into the Bay; an initiative made possible by BCF, our partner organisations and dedicated volunteers.” “Better habitats mean better fishing and that also benefits the wider ecosystem too, but thanks to the increased awareness of our work and how it supports fishing through the “Give Back to Habitat” campaign in all BCF stores, we are helping empower Aussie anglers to get involved in projects like this one.” BCF Managing Director, Anthony Heraghty, underlined his company’s commitment to the important work being done by OzFish. “Australia possesses some of the world’s greatest outdoor spaces, and by encouraging people to restore and improve our waterways, we are helping to ensure it stays that way. Every cent which is donated to OzFish at a BCF store will play its part in habit restoration and boosting fish numbers across Australia.” The opening of the Moreton Bay Shellfish Recycling Centre was also supported by Healthy Land and Water, Caltex, Brisbane Airport Corporation and the Goodman Foundation.

We notched up a quick dozen at the usual drop off near Koala straight after finding them in 15 feet of water.Then a good feed of redclaw before resuming our search. for fish finally finding some more near the far marker.

    Bloody pelicans back roosting on the ramp Got a feed of redclaw but fishing was a bit tough with only 5 bass and 3 yellas. One of the yellas fell in love with my foot. One of the yellas was tagged 11 days ago at the survey event and managed to shrink 1cm probably because it as so randy. Cheers Ray
