Gunnamatta 04/12

Postby 4liters » Sun Dec 04, 2016 11:16 am

Headed down to Gunnamatta this morning as the wind looked nice for it. Pity the tide was low and getting lower by the time I got there and that was probably why there were no fish.

Having walked to the end without a single hit I decided to keep walking and check out down towards Cape Schanck. There's some interesting rock platforms along there that might have been worth a shot if the swell had been a bit lower.

The only thing of note was finding a shopping bag full of live sea snails tucked away behind a rock along with a couple of portable stoves, and a couple of zip lock bags of abalone scattered along the sand. It looked a pretty suss so I gave fisheries a call, then released the snails and one abalone that was still alive.

Nice work Ian.
Had planned an early am slide session this morning, but a 13 hour shift yesterday knocked that into touch.
Might have a peek kater, but if the swell is up a bit..maybe not.
Got couta..?

Nice work mate. Today I was walking along the foreshore in Altona with my partner and noticed many people taking illegal shellfish in water only about a metre or less. Fisheries were catching many but couldn't keep up. Went down further and there were a lot more. Reported as many as I could.

Bad luck Ian but thanks for the report. I'm interested to see if December proves to be successful as previous years :thumbsup:
