Fraser Island Fishing Annual Closure


Recommended Posts

ANGLERS heading to and at FraserIsland are reminded to make sure they fish outside the closed area that runs between Indian Head and Waddy Point during the annual fishing closure.

Queensland Boating and Fisheries Patrol District Manager Greg Bowness said the closure was in place from midday 1 August to midday 30 September 2017.

“During the closure, all fishing is prohibited on the foreshore within an area from a point 400m north of Waddy Point to a point 400m south of Indian Head, and 400m out to sea from low water,” Mr Bowness said.

“Outside the closed water area, fishers taking advantage of the tailor season should also ensure they adhere to the species size limit of 35cm and the possession limit of 20.

“The closure does not apply to the collection of worms and pipis by hand.”

for a fish species that should be eaten as soon as possible after capture for best enjoyment, around this time of year and for a couple of months, Woolies and Coles `fresh` seafood sections always have supplies of tailor fillets, so for some it`s working well.
