  3. Deep dropping with Team Bait Catcher

    Got an invite from the team to fish out wide for yellowfin and deep drop for some ooglies and boy what a great day with Adrian,Bernie and Nathan. The boys did a superb job of finding the fish and ended up with 4 monster blue eye cod a few perch and a small gemmie and some great blue swimmer crabs 🦀 can’t believe we did score some of those jumbo fin that were out there but there is not one thing wrong with the quality of top table fish we caught. Thanks heaps fellas .... what a top day out

  22. Raiders have recently been reporting that anchor ropes have been severed by persons unknown, suspected to be divers. I contacted NSW Maritime Authority and spoke to Mr Marcus Cahill. He stated that this practice of anchoring and allowing divers underneath anchored vessels is not illegal. It is regarded as a courtesy issue. Cutting of anchor ropes is a criminal offence and is reportable to the NSW Maritime body within 24 hrs. The link below is the downloadable forms available to report. From the application link below find Miscellaneous Forms and download the VESSEL INCIDENT FORM and the WITNESS STATEMENT FORM. CLICK HERE FOR FORMS Gather as much information, including pictures and description of the vessel, registration number etc. All forms received will be investigated. Send completed forms to Marine Investigations Unit NSW Maritime, Locked Bag 5100 Camperdown, NSW, 1450 OR fax to (02) 9563 8699 Mr Marcus Cahill suggested that if enough letters of concern are received by the Authority, the laws regarding distances between anchored boats and divers may be reviewed. Should you wish to voice an opinion on this issue, send a letter to Mr Brett Moore General Manager Recreational Boating Locked Bag 5100 Camperdown, NSW, 1450 Cheers swordfisherman
