  1. It's further confirmation that while individual humans are probably the smartest creatures ever to exist, groups of humans are as dumb as a box of hammers.
  2. Unfortunately, about 30 years ago we started paying ferals to breed. Not surprisingly, they did. This is just one of the many, many undesirable consequences.
  3. Unless you are prepared to confront people on the spot, the only real action to take is to call Fishwatch. No idea how or how quickly they respond, but at the end of the day it's their job to manage it. I guess there's records kept of numbers of calls to them etc, and if there's not enough officers, it will show up in their responses.
  4. Yep, hard to imagine a store owner putting out a report of "nothing much caught here this week" when their whole business relies on people buying stuff from them to catch fish! Of course they embellish.
  5. I was kinda wondering if there'd be a few less boats at the marina than usual on a Saturday. I don't usually go out on weekends, but maybe this time. Or just save it 'till Monday.
  6. So with some really nice weather and conditions coming up over the weekend, the burning question is - watch the Grand Final, or take the boat out? Must admit, I'm struggling a bit!

    Freezing Crab

    Yeah, I know, but nobody home to eat them at the moment. Well, except me, so maybe I'll just have to step up! Cheers.
  8. Hi all, Just after some tips on the best way to freeze blue swimmers? Raw? Cooked? In shell? etc. Any thoughts? Mal
  9. And yet they can broadcast a moron killing people in NZ live, and that's not a problem.
  10. You should have taken it straight back to BCF. As the retailer, it is actually their responsibility under the consumer law. They are not allowed to pass the buck back to the manufacturer (and to be fair to BCF, they may well not have, I don't know). Tough lesson learned by the look of it though. And interesting to hear about the shoddy service from such a big company. Not good enough from them. Thanks for that.
