    Gotta correct you Mikee, these are the best of days as we are all still above ground and sucking air.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Well drove over princess drive this morning and anything that floats is out chasing the snapper! I can see the limit down to 6 or 3 for those in a couple of years also they will not handle that kind of pressure for long.
    Nil durum volenti !!

    I though about going out but can't seem to find any motivation to actually do it.

    Interesting listening to the Rec's talking about those "commercial guys taking all "their" fish" while I was working on a boat in the marina yesterday. Some of their attitude makes me bloody cross

    They really have no idea of the amount of fish they ("recreational fisherman") take. I recon at least 10 ton comes up the ramp on a good day. Everyong I see seems to have "got their limit" and on one boat yesterday there were 6 fisherman so 60 snapper for that one boat!!

    BUT I do agree there should be no trawling / danish seaining withing 3-4NM of shore in Tasman bay

    I know but not what I saw at the ramp yesterday, there was a shit load of limits caught off Rabbit Island. As an aside most of the fish I saw yesterday were 30-35cms.

    I also know the "commercial guys" are far from perfect especially the smaller operators but its same on both sides.

    when you understand how the commercial and recreational quota is calculated it becomes very clear why this dosent happen anymore
    there is only a fraction of the fishery there was back then
