2011 Moreton Bay Classic - Boundaries Q&A


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

There have been a few questions floating around regarding boudanries for this competition so to clarify...


The tournament will take place in Moreton Bay (Queensland) inside the following boundaries:

Northern Boundary = S 27° 0"

Southern Boundary = S 27° 50"

Eastern Boundary = South Passage Bar between Moreton Island and North Stradbroke Island

Western Boundaries = 50m up the mouth of any river or creek flowing into Moreton Bay except the Brisbane River. The Brisbane River boundary is the end (furtherest most upstream point) of the rock wall bordering the reclaimed land.

Q: Can you fish in the Bribie Passage?

A: Yes. The passage has been deemed a significant body of water as opposed to a tributory and can thus be fished. Tributories off the Bribie Passage are subject to the 50m rule.

Q: With the Northern boundary up past Cape Moreton , what do would classify the Eastern Boundary at this end of the Bay ?

A: The Eastern boundary is simply no further east than the eastern most point of Moreton Island.
