Folks Dale is really running the ball up here, who is going to back him up?

This reinforces the need for everyone to keep this (and other access points) spotlessly clean. take your rubbish home with you, and if you see some lazy mongrel has left rubbish, pick it up for them.
In this case, the complaintant is using any opportunity to whinge to all and sundry, bad mouthing anglers, and kayakers alike. Council staff are now considering having a lock put on the gate due to the constant whinging.

If every person that has accessed this location, and every magazine writer who has shown up here to take advantage of the often easy fishing and big fish so they can get pictures to sell actually made the effort to put pen to paper to council and state govt this would be an easy win. But many users are bludgers, pure and simple and probably don't deserve access.
Those that have taken action, well done.  :Clap) For those that haven't there is an opportunity here for you to take a positive role in your own fishing future.

So the question is, are you a bludger or not?

Politicians recognise templates and prewritten letters and treat them as they deserve to be treated.  If you can post on an internet forum you can write a letter expressing your feelings to a politician.  The links to the email addresses are on the first couple of pages of this post.

Fished Harpeng Rd yesterday with a mate, was our first time to this spot, heaps better to launch from than Shines Rd.  I'll be sending an email off to Ms Freckleton very soon! 
We were greeted by the landowners two foxy puppies, very friendly, wish old mate was as nice to us fishos! The gate was ajar when we got there. Fished from 8.45ish to around 1.15, got 12 bass between the two of us, biggest went 49cm.  Did lots of paddling, right up past Shines rd and back. Still muddy down the bottom launch area, found one half empty can of Great Northern beer, took it with us, not to drink  :thumbsup   Made sure to close gate securely!

Cheers
