Thank you to all for a good morning. It was good to put some faces to names.
As it was a slow morning I managed 1 yella and 1 grunting catfish. But the paddle was well worth it.

I'm keen for to give  Moogerah a crack!  :thanks

I went to the horse paddocks quite a lot of fish scattered around but no real schools got 6 trolling none casting or jigging. Silver Hot Lips and black and silver Boomerang deep.

I headed in the opposite direction and hit the buoy line for nothing. Neither on the troll or jigging in the one decent school that I came across near one tree hill (well that's what I'm calling it anyway. More of an island with a single tree on it).

Top day on the water and good to meet some fellow sweetwaterians. (yeah just made that up)

I must say my old school Viking Predator really impressed me today. First paddle in it after owning it for 5 months. That's what happens when you have too many yaks to choose from!

Apologies for not showing up guys  :Oops). I made a last minute decision to try to recover my baitcasting outfit I lost across from Lumley Hill a couple weeks ago. Needless to say, that was a waste of time. All I managed to dredge up was one old, algae covered Redclaw pot. Still had one shrimp kicking around in it though. I definitely should have given up on the idea and joined you guys - would have learned plenty I think.

Anyway, I dragged some of my home-made deep divers around the mouth of Logans and out towards the CSIRO buoy for zip. A lot of fish on the sounder in 20-30 ft of water, but none interested in chasing lures. Clipped on a TN60 and trolled it back to Lumley for 1 possible hit, but that was it.

Stopped by the newly opened Spillway Common launching spot on the way home for a look. Of course, I spotted about 6 people fishing inside the no fishing zone across the other side.  >:( Definitely within the 100 metres as stated on the signs there. AND during closed season. One dude landed a good size Bass while I was watching from the far bank. Called the Fishwatch hotline only to leave a message. Haven't called me back yet.

Keen to catch up next time.

Cheers,
Beetle.

I have spoken with B&FP officers this morning, they did get your message but had already moved downstream & had their  hands full down there.  C:-) They were out there Sunday & issued over $8000 in fines between Wivenhoe & Mt Crosby Weir including Shines Rd, Twin Bridges. For offences including having bass in closed season, illegal apparatus & fishing in closed waters.  :Clap)

I''ve got to say, that currently the B&FP team is being very proactive on this region, far better than at any time in the past that I'm aware of.  :Clap)

BTW- a couple of the B&FP officers are members here on sweetwater, so don't hesitate to leave posts here about suspect activity, but always ring the hotline first. Won't say any names, but they are good people who really do care about our fisheries and doing a good job. Thanks fellas  :youbeauty

That's great to hear! Maybe with the funding boost from the fines the powers that be can see the benefits of continued policing. Pretty bad that people try it on, deserve everything they get imho. Good on the guys for policing it, means better "legal" fishing for all of us when the season reopens.

A pity they don't get the fines back to their department, the fines go to treasury dept, into consolidated revenue. But it all helps to pay off Qld's depts.

Any idea what the illegal apparatus was. Only thing I can think of is a castnet?

Thanks for the info Fitz. Great to see that they are on the ball. It still amazes me that people will fish only a few paces away from a sign saying NO FISHING!

I did a little test thanks to google maps this morning. Doing a rough trace of the path I followed yesterday, trolling most of the time (Hobie Trawler coming through!) it looks like I did about 10.5k's for the morning!

Now that is by far and away the most peddling I've ever done in the yak! I'm not a fit bloke, and wasn't going fast, only have the standard fins on my mirage drive, legs are holding up pretty good today. Now, if you told me I was going to go out and do 5 hours of exercise, they wouldn't find your body...but fishing? You bet  :thumbsup

Still nothing on Dave who was last seen heading out to the middle of nowhere at a rapid rate of knots only to return hours later. I personally think he went to the kiosk for a cuppa..but he insists he was fishing..  :popcorn)
