  3. Bump, this is on tomorrow Wed 18th August. Always a fun night. Jeremy
  4. Just been going through my stash and looks like I will have an old Bomber game lure, a Blue pillie, some 300g jigs, couple of sand anchors and kayak anchor for auction myself.
  5. Don't know what months are proposed as yet. Possibly yet to be determined. There is a working group which have been nutting this out for the past year or so. My position is that we should not have the closed season on snapper and we should not have any green zones. As for snapper, no strong evidence as yet that they are overfished. Most snapper fishers would prefer to see an increased minimum size to a closed season. Green zones - Queensland has some of the toughest size and bag limits to protect the fisheries in the world so our fisheries are already protected. Green zones are designed to protect biodiversity, but the only thing they prohibit is fishing (extractive activities) and they do nothing to protect the habitats from the real threats such as pollution, urban runoff, fertiliser runoff from farming, etc etc.

    The annual auction night will be held on Wed 18th August 7.30pm. This event is hosted by the Brisbane Sportfishing club. Bring along any fishing and boating gear you want to sell. All items will be auctioned (you may set a reserve price) and club keeps 10% of the sale price. Good place to pick up some bargains as there is usually lots of gear for sale, some good quality and near new, and not many buyers, so lots of bargains to be had.Venue is:Brisbane 16 ft Skiff Sailing ClubQuay StBulimbaWednesday 18th AugustStarts 7.30pm.Come early if you have items you want to sell so that can be registered.

  8. was going to post this in the thread on snapper bag and size limits, but decided to make a new post. Word is that seasonal closures are coming for snapper. No take species for 3-4 months of the year. Possibly for recs only, not charter or commercial boys. Look out for the RIS next year and 'consultation' meetings to follow. Jeremy
  9. FACT 8: Labor and the Greens have a preference deal. Bob Brown has announced that they want 100% of the Coral sea closed to fishing and a minimum of 30% of all Australian waters closed to fishing. THEY WILL GET THIS IF LABOR GETS ELECTED. FACT 9: Fishing is not a significant threat to biodiversity. Only a small proportion of all fish species are of commercial or amateur fishing interest and these are protected by some of the toughest size and bag limits in the world. The major threats to marine biodiversity are stormwater runoff carrying pollutants and fertilisers. FACT 10: Vote for labor or the Greens and we are stuffed!

    Leader Line

    4 lb leader is asking for trouble with flathead. Even 8 lb is not enough to be confident with a good flathead. Bollocks that your lures will not swim well using 8 lb leader. Jeremy
  11. I agree with most other posts. I use Black Magic tough trace (black label) for 40 and 60lb leader when bait fishing. I use fluorocarbon in 4lb up to 20lb for plastics. I either make up traces with hooks on one end and swivel on the other which are stored in zip lcok bags, or sometimes I will run a double and tie a double uni knot to the leader, mainly for trolling and lure casting. But might not work for you as I use mono main line, so the double uni knot is a mono to mono connection.
  12. looking for someone to join me chasing snapper and kingies tomorrow. Will be leaving inner Northern suburbs Brisbane around 9.30 am and back about 7.00 pm. Trolling lures and casting soft plastics or metal jigs. No bait this time. Deckie must have all own gear, absolutely no chance of getting seasick as I will not be coming back early. Sorry, but obese people will not be considered due to restricted room. Share costs will be about $60. Small boat and final call on whether I go will be made first thing tomorrow. First in gets first look by private message. Jeremy
  13. my last boat was a 4.3 m heavy duty Stessl tinny that I converted into a centre console. Boat the forward and aft cross-thwart seats were removed by a marine engineer and additional bracing was welded in, so I had a full flat floor. I managed to get most of the floatation back under the floors. You are taking a risk of weakening the hull by removing the seat which also acts as bracing, and you may get cracking problems as a result. You will also lose floatation, but there is no law I know of stipulating floatation in boats. Make sure you know what you are doing and why if you go ahead, because it costs money and much harder to put it back the same!
