The west side north of Norman bay is all ok for fishing, some of the islands are parks I think but unless you have a boat that won’t be relevant

Big fish went 67cm and 3.6kg and inhaled a nomad Madscad in pilchard pattern. The other on one of the float baits.

I'm happy to discuss any aspect of the tactics other than the exact location.

I believe you can fish in Marine parks but not on Marine sanctuaries.

Nice fish Doug, the young bloke still has you by 2cm and 300grams though.
