Re: Lakes entrance run 28/7

Winter fishing off Lakes Entrance. 2/0 and 3/0, fish slack line with a mix of squid and Pillies. The advantage of this is that you get jackets and mowies as well as pinkies Let the fish take a bit of line before you hit it. If it is quiet for 15 minutes or so move short distances till you find the p...

Re: Lakes Entrance in September

Bullock island to try for salmon best around the change of tide from ebb to flood. Metal lures. Chance of a Taylor there too. Night time Post Office Jetty for Taylor cast into the lit area near the Thunderbird. Footbridge is worth a go. Not much bream around the town at that time of the year, they a...

Re: IT'S TIME TO END COMMERCIAL NETTING OF FISH IN THE GIPPSLAND LAKES

Couple of points. Fish in the lakes are regularly tested for mercury. The longer living fish such as bream have higher levels than short lived species such Taylor, however the levels are no greater than , shark, Tuna and many other species. The main man made source of mercury is from the old gold mi...

Re: IT'S TIME TO END COMMERCIAL NETTING OF FISH IN THE GIPPSLAND LAKES

One more thing. When the discussion turns to environmental issues, of which there are many. The depth of the entrance bar is put fwd. It is a fact that spawning of bream takes place in specific salt levels and the levels in the lake have gone above it. However the flow of water in and out of the lak...

Re: IT'S TIME TO END COMMERCIAL NETTING OF FISH IN THE GIPPSLAND LAKES

I have to say this whole campaign is a misinformed load of tripe. It will most probably end in the lakes closed for commercial fishing and then to the dismay of the campaigners no change to bream catches. Then you will have wasted many years and destroyed the lives of 10 fishers for no gain. Address...

Re: IT'S TIME TO END COMMERCIAL NETTING OF FISH IN THE GIPPSLAND LAKES

If you want to long line fish then be prepared to have ten times as many commercial fishers and ten times the price. You simply cannot economically harvest most species with long lines. If you could they would be doing it. Net making and repairs is an arduous job. I know I have spent thousands of ho...

Re: IT'S TIME TO END COMMERCIAL NETTING OF FISH IN THE GIPPSLAND LAKES

I see yet again uninformed comment. Re. Outside the continental shelf. 95% of Australian caught commercial species are caught on the continental shelf in depths less than 400 metres. So all your flathead shark mowing whiting etc would no longer be available to those that don't fish.

Re: VFA Media Alert: HANDS OFF VICTORIAN TUNA

It is two now x ??? trips in a year. So for some it could mean they go 20 times a year and keep 40 fish. Others may go twice and keep 4 fish. If it is cut back to 1 but everyone goes twice as often and then a few extra people take up Tuna fishing then the total number increases. This is a big probl...
