    A few snaps

    A few snaps??? I was hoping to see snapper Jon! Lol. Sorry mate, hate pelicans! Too many on the water and at the boat ramp! 😂😂😂 Great photos though! Cheers scratchie!!!
  5. Most people would struggle to reach their bag limit based on knowledge and angling ability. The ones that do, generally will release more fish than most rec fishos catch! (Snapper) That is my experience of my area Port Stephens! The question is........... What impact does, commercial and recreational fishos have on the snapper population???? IMO, we’ll never know unless we could drain the oceans and do a proper count! If bag and size limits are set by authorities, then that is all we have to go on! We can argue and debate all we want but that is the law! If you enjoy your angling, then abide by the rules set by the DPI and get out there and enjoy yourself! Cheers scratchie!!!

    The Entrance mixed bag

    That’s great to see that at the young age of 81yo she still enjoys fishing! I’m sure she would have been excited by that mixed bag! Well done 👍 cheers scratchie

    G’day raiders, Firstly, these type of incidents are more common than we care to imagine. They are not isolated to any one race and point blank they are breaking the law! The only thing we can do is lead by example and report any illegal activity to the appropriate authorities! Thanks for your input. This thread is now locked. Regards scratchie mod team
  8. About 5 years ago I remember a good run on trevally and haven’t encountered them since! Good point!
  9. That was from 2017
  10. Quite an interesting topic! I have found that this snapper season to be one of the best in years! Almost every trip has been in the double digits and two weeks ago we had the best trip I’ve ever encountered with approximately 100 fish boated. I’ve never seen them so thick in this area! We still have trawlers, fish traps and probably more rec anglers than ever before! I’m at a loss to explain why! But let’s hope the great fishing continues 👍 cheers scratchie
