Hinze permits.
« on: February 07, 2011, 04:57:28 PM »
I have already posted this in another thread but thought I would start a newey.
There has been a bit of discussion re rangers selling  permits for Hinze so Lasst night I sent an email to SEQ water and got the following response today. Pretty good service concidering all the flood stuff they have on their plate.
 Cheers
Ray.

I wonder if it is possible for the "local fish stocking association" to enforce the requirement to have the permit?  If the system is managed by the association, that must include enforcement.  Maybe there has been an act of Parliament that I missed.

Ray that is an interesting reply you got back, but certainly opens up a can of worms for early starting visiting anglers.

I believe that Miami Bait and Tackle has closed.
 The enforcement is carried out by the rangers and the charge is a tresspass charge. Ie you are on SEQ property without permission.
Another anomoly brought about by the merger of all the dams.
I purchase a yearly permit so that I can do an early start.
It is one of the cheapest permits at only $40 for a year and goodness knows the stocking assn need every penny that they can get.a
 Even when the rangers sold the permits you could not get one before 7am and you had to go out of your way to get to their office.

Don't know if that requires an act of parliament, but its pretty benign compared to this.

When the PRFMA decided they wanted to set different safety rules for North Pine Dam than those set by Maritime Qld, I wrote to the relevant ministers (there are two of them who oversee SEQ Water) questioning the wisdom of allowing a fish stocking group with no expertise in the area to set such policy for SEQ Waters asset. The answer I got was that the PRFMA not only have the right to set the safety standard for all on water activities for the dam, (Thats what it said, not sure what the sailing and canoe club think about that)  but that they also have the responsibility to enforce those standards.

Go figure on how that works under the current legislation.

Agree with you aussiebasser. Wonder how the stocking association feel about enforcing the permit or how a fisho without one would react to another member of the public telling him he needs one!

How would you go in a court of law if you purchased a permit in the afternoon following a morning fishing session. The date on the permit would state you were within your rights to fish that day. There's no time on the permit.

I purchase a yearly permit & have done so for many years now. I fish Hinze very regularly & often chat to the Rangers, have seen the Boating & Fisheries guys on the water a couple of times (have been checked for safety gear, etc once), fished the majority of comps up there & even assisted the stocking boys distribute fingerlings years ago. The only time I've ever been asked to produce my permit has been at comps. Maybe they think, "he's up here all the time so he must have one"!

Having said all that, I encourage all anglers to purchase a permit to assist the stocking boys to maintain the excellent fishery that it is.

Cheers,

Doddsy

Doddsy agree with you in supporting the stocking group, and I also use a yearly permit for the same reasons.

Have spoken to the rangers many times over the recent years and all are good blokes to yarn too, and will often see them at the ramp.
