  6. West Lakes method....Fill up a berly spring with mince/pilchard and semolina mix till tacky,place small pieces of same molded on hooks,cast out and let sink, rip it up and let sink,repeat 4 times and retrieve then repeat process....usually mullet will bite on the sink as they feed on the released burley. cheers b

  8. Its the first step in a long line of changes coming in the new year and just getting Pirsa to realise that there is a problem and they cant sit on their hands and everything will be ok is a milestone(well actually they didnt realise it but the minister has)Because of the timing wholesale changes that are needed couldnt happen but rest assured they will happen and even a significant number of commercials are on board many of which are generational fishers who would like to stay in the game,PIRSA are at fault here allowing the indiscriminate slaughter by not introducing a TAC which has been called for by recs and commercials alike........wait and see but with fingers crossed for a better future not only with snapper but with all the other species that have been fished to breaking point through pathetic fisheries management from PIRSA. cheers b

  19. well the current system has been really shit for us so i'm prepared to give anything a go......read it and done my submission.Give it a go and have your say. cheers b
  20. well someones doing a shit job because plenty of fisheries are a shadow of their former selves,its all down to Pirsa then for allowing their demise? cheers b
  21. you Aussie Dave are one clued up fella and your ability to read between the lines is spot on,ive folowed your posts on this and other forums and you have always called a spade a spade on either side of the political/rec/commercial divide and i don't reckon you have missed a beat in your commentary.Please stay involved or even better get further involved because rec fishing needs people like you. For all the other seemingly considered opinions above i would just like to add that atm sustainability is only Pirsa spin and is in no way relative to their policies implemented or sadly the many and varied recreational and commercial target species,added to this i'm not aware of any species in our country that has been fished into oblivion by recreational fishers....same can not be said for the commercials and never will be. cheers b
  22. well said AD,no matter what the future it has to be better than the past or our hobby is doomed cheers b
