    sure is they have placed a ban on pro and rec fishing till after the 8th feb to allow huon to keep recapturing their lost stock...jeff Thomson mentioned in the article is my mate scratchie as he is known was catchin them on bare hooks and chewing gum..check youtube clips..they have recaptured quite a few and are continuing to catch as many as they can they are using their food pellets to attract then jigging them using poling and rope line and returning them into pen the majority are hanging round the pens as they keep feeding them then using purse seine net also hopefully after the 8th we can still try n catch a few...rick
