Fitzy,

Why are you so adamant that bass did not occur north of the Burrum? Locals I know in the wide bay Burnett area claim they went as far north as the Elliot historically (i.e. long before stocking) - not trying to argue just interested in your source of information?

Also this may sound very 'un conservationist' of me but I personally don't support the need for a barra closed season for recs  - few reasons mostly selfish - summer is the best sweetwater barra fishing season time there is, people will continue to fish and 'disturb' breeding run fish anyway (for tarpon, sooties what ever you want to claim), I don't think the rec take actually adds up to a significant impact on barra stocks (cf gill netting breeding runs/aggregations - would support a reduction in the daily take at this time tho), I think the closure was largely bought in to appease the pros (share the pain), the NT does not have a rec closed season and their barra stocks (SUPPORTED BY HEALTHY CATCHMENTS AND CONECTED HABITAT) - are doin fine...whatdayareckon....??

Enquired yesterday how the Freshwater Review is progressing. Too late for any more proposals/submissions or to amend those being considered. The public comment period (no date for this yet) gives an opportunity to respond to proposals, all public comment will be considered.

Oddly no one has come up with a comment on a closed season for Murray Cod in the MD System. I cannot see any good reason why the closed season on Cod should not extent throughout the entire MDS. These fish do travel and that has been proven repeatedly. It would also solve problems regarding fish caught in waters "linked" to the NSW boundary streams.

MURRAY COD CLOSED SEASON
Suggestions?
I'll throw one up. Murray Cod to have a closed season from 1 August to 31 October in all Murray / Darling drainage waterways.

I thought that would have covered it.

From 1970 to the first entrainment of stocked Bass I never caught a single Bass in Tin Can streams or the entire Mary catchment Jim. 3 generations of locals known to me in a good spread of the catchment say the same ie Cooran, Pomona Traveston, Obi, Connondale, Bauple etc, etc. in my pre teen and teen years Bass were called Kin Kin Perch or Noosa Perch by these locals. Have also heard of the odd one though no proof.
