    south queensland Hot Bite NPD 23/1/19

    yes starting to see a few fish with it and water is turning green plus quite a few dead redclaw in the pots so it may be an indicator of low oxygen levels Cheers Ray
  2. Well the weather was hot but cannot say the same about the bite, 7 bass 1 yella 1 silver that did not really count as we got it in a redclaw pot. Consolation prize was some redclaw. Cheers Ray ps percy and his mates all back at the ramp.

    Diesel Engines

    Are you aware of dpf issues with diesel motors that are only used for short runs. Ideally around once a fortnight you need to go for a highway run of around 100ks . Dearlers love blocked dpf as they average $1000 upwards. I never use shell they are consistently 8 to10 cents a litre more expensive. I get 10litres per 100ks towing my boat to npd with absolutely no difference between BP ( Also rip off pricing,) puma, reddog, 7/11, liberty caltex and woolworths. I normally fill at reddog at petrie who get their fuel from shell last fill was $ 1.29 per litre against $1.47 at shell at victoria point.and $1.42 at woolies at viccy point.

    south queensland New To The Area

    You have good access to some good dams in your local area. Maroon and Moogerah for plenty of yellas and bass but they get busy with skiers of a weekend petrol motors allowed on both. Somerse tditto. Wivenhoe 4 stroke petrol only and 6 knot speed limit Wyaralong bass,tilapia and carp electric only but you can leave your petrol motor on your boat under restrictions on seq waters websitehas only been stocked for a few years but bass now legal size Bill gun nearly empty last i heard Aitkensons is empty I just saw that you are on Tamborise so i will add hinze to the list electric only but petrol motors same conditions as wyaralong. Hinze is great bass and toga fishery with a few yellas around, Lots of standing timber to practice your casting skills and the bass love live shrimp dropped in among the timber.Be aware that it is not advisable to eat fish from hinze due to elevated mercury levels. Barred grunter can be a pest if bait fishing. I occasionally have spare decky spots on either sundays or wednesdays on hinze Just browse through the freshwater section for plenty of reports and info. Cheers Ray

    south queensland Duh

    Got a bit conchie yesterday and decided to clean out the boat and put everything back in except my rods. Air was a bit blue at the gate at NPD when Mark said where are your rods. Back to basics handlining landing 2 bass and one smallish yella. Fishing was very slow with6 undersized bass and one yella off the float before exploring everywhere and then returning in desperation to the float where we quickly picked up some better bass before they disappeared after 15 minutes. Sounder shot is one of the new fads. Final tally one yella and 14 bass. Cheers Ray

    Have You Seen A Sawfish?

    Copy of email Cheers Ray From: Niall Byrne [mailto:niall@scienceinpublic.com.au] Sent: Tuesday, 8 January 2019 1:40 PM To: 'qafca@bigpond.net.au' Cc: 'Barbara@saw.fish' Subject: Have you seen a sawfish? Dear Queensland Amateur Fishing Clubs Association, Could your members help us find out what’s happening to sawfish? I’m writing on behalf of Barbara Wueringer, the director of Sharks and Rays Australia (SARA). She wants to hear about your sightings – a live fish, a saw on the wall of your local pub, or a photo from your family album Forty years ago, sawfish were regularly seen off Sydney and the east coast, and Perth and up the west coast. Today they’re rarely seen outside of the Gulf of Carpentaria, NT and the Kimberley . Your sightings, no matter how long ago they happened, will help us work out how many sawfish there used to be, how many remain, and how we can help them recover. Here’s a copy of a media release we’ve issued about the call to action. You can report sightings and find out more about the project at https://saw.fish. We’re also discussing the project on social media @SharksAndRaysAu, where we’ve shared some footage of sawfish hunting. Kind regards, Niall ________ Niall Byrne Creative Director Science in Public 82 Hudsons Road, Spotswood VIC 3015 0417 131 977 Or call the office on 03 9398 1416 niall@scienceinpublic.com.au Full contact details at www.scienceinpublic.com.au
