bream now have to be 25cm minimum (new)

tailor now have to be 35cm minimum (new)

dusky flathead are 40cm minimum and now are 75cm maximum (recent)

other flathead are 30cm minimum

school mackerel are 50cm minimum

spotty mackerel are 60cm minimum

spanish mackerel are 75cm minimum

snapper are 35cm minimum

these are the species on the list this weekend and good luck to those entering

Not shooting anyone down here, but any fisher person should know these rules and if they don't they should make it there business to.

Plenty of places to find this information,tackle stores have the pamplets and as said earlier the fishweb site..

Also a reminder to all that the lights are working on the boat, I know the water police have been checking out all safety gear so beware..

Alot of guys have been getting $200 fines for not having an all round white light whilst under way..

Have a good weekend fellas, il be working unfortunatly..
