i ask the question to all? if you hook a metre plus barra this time of the year whilst targeting other species (i.e. jacks) with a lure with trebles, do you attempt to unhook it boatside whilst the fish is in the water (especially using trebles).  freakin dangerous to angler and fish to my knowledge.

Well, according to the wording of Rayke's reply, you should not have been fishing in an area where there might me barra as fishing anywhere you might catch one is "taking' them.
That's one reason why the wording / legislation is often ignored, it does not make sense. You'd be closing all near shore or inland  fishing north of the sunshine coast for the entire barra season.

And what chance do we have to educate the general public with irresponsible journalism such as this
http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/barramundi-reel-deal-for-coast-fisherman/comments-e6freoof-1226549441067.
The paper were fully aware that its closed season and yet they still go ahead and publish.
 Cheers

Both reports advised anglers of the closed season dates. 

According to DPI Barramundi do not exist below The Mary, so they could not possibly prosecute.  These fish must be feral and probably should be removed.  Wouldn't it be illegal to knowingly release Barramundi south of their known area?   If its not, why the hell aren't we releasing them into Wivenhoe?

Dont know if your serious about Wivenhoe Dale?
Would you want the pain of a cold winter barra kill off?
Can of worms, the whole thing, but its certainly across quite a few boards at the moment, good to see people asking some questions, answers mite not allways be there, but little steps to start

Back to the original question is not the problem the lack of enforcement rather than the legislation itself?
If there was more enforcement and its subsequent publicity would not more people be aware of the law and if there are loopholes the legal eagles would take advantage of these and then the pollies would be forced to act to close the loopholes.

Why didn't the fish in the photos die off last winter?
If all this is really about two Barra captures on the Gold Coast being reported in the local paper, don't we think there may be more important things to worry about?
If it's about fish frames in bins in Mackay, then yes, ring the Fisheries Hotline on 1800 018 116.  Every member here should have that number in their phone anyway.

For the last couple of years barra have been regularly caught in Noosa, Maroochy,Brisbane,Logan,Coomera and Nerang rivers too many to be pet fish releases. I would assume that they could be post flood dam escapees who have been living in cooler dam waters making their way south looking for cooler waters.
 Will have to wait for some tagged fish recaptures to see where they are coming from.
I too would like to see barra stocked into local SEQ dams.
Lenthalls has proved that they co exist with bass and yellas and maybe they could reduce the forky and banded grunter local populations.

I dunno mate, why dont the fish die in lenthalls every winter - some seasons are more severe than others, or they had a nice little salt water hidey hole maybe?
I think the GC barra is a real sticking point because it has been openly, can I use the word "flaunted", in public - its a non spoken go ahead to the public that targetting, and killing a no take species is accetable.

From the latest Queensland Recreational Boating and Fishing Guide the 2011-2012 edition.
Closed Seasons.
Barramundi. "Throughout the Queensland east coast, a closed season applies to Barramundi from midday 1 November to midday 1 Febuary."
Pretty sure the Gold Coast is on the Queensland east coast, pic of a very dead Barra  in the Gold Coast Bulliten yesterday from the Coomera.

Yep, saw that. They are promoting them, virtually congratulating him on it. Then 1 small sentence about closed season

No. They are just reporting that some clown has taken a barramundi in the Coomera River - Nothing unusual about that. They just made the point that it was closed season for barramundi on the east coast. The media are the media - they didn't catch the fish!!! Why so much angst???
