helping hands

I recently returned from a week on the Pacific atoll of Christmas Island. This small island in the middle of nowhere is one of the fishiest places on earth. Inside the vast lagoon, swarms of bonefish, GTs and triggerfish swim the shallow flats and provide exciting fishing on fly and lure. Just offshore there’s an untapped fishery for sailfish, yellowfin, wahoo, and who knows what else... The island has been on the radar of travelling fishos for over 30 years and is widely known as one of the best places on earth to target bonefish. Americans and Aussies frequent the island and help keep the fragile economy ticking along, employing guides and service staff across the fishing lodges on the island. Being a guide is a prestigious job in these parts. Just like…

battle tactics

I made a long cast up onto a shallow flat. The tide had filled the edges of the sand flat, and in the narrow window of water I knew there was a good chance that a few big flathead would be hunting whiting in the shallows. It was an experimental trip, where we were trying to perfect a few new tactics in preparation for an upcoming tournament. The lure was a Mega Bass eel, a strange looking articulated lure that had so far proven to be a completely fish free purchase. We’d already caught a couple of monster flathead, and it was time to put this expensive piece of Japanese plastic to its final test, but my confidence in this lure was very low. I retrieved the lure in a series…

major changes to queensland fisheries regulations

THE Palaszczuk Government has announced some major changes to Queensland fishing legislation effective September 1, 2019. These include a number of changes to rebuild snapper, pearl perch and scallop stocks. Which are all considered depleted by the Queensland Department of Fisheries and Agriculture, with stock levels reportedly under the nationally recommended 20% biomass level. Changes for recreational fishers include: • A new annual seasonal closure for snapper and pearl perch from 15 July to 15 August. • Increasing the size limit of pearl perch from 35cm to 38cm. • Removing extended charter catch limits for snapper and pearl perch. • New boat limits for mud crab, prawns, snapper, black jewfish, barramundi, Spanish mackerel, shark, tropical rock lobster and sea cucumber, which hold the operator of the boat responsible for ensuring no more than 2 times the possession…

FISH FACTS: PIPI TAGGING Bivalve molluscs are the unsung heroes of our inshore ecosystems. Consider the humble cockles or pipis living in soft sediments in our estuaries and beaches. Or the “ecosystem engineers” in the form of the oysters which formerly formed large shellfish reefs in virtually every estuary and bay. ● By Dr Ben Diggles ENVIRONMENT: PROTECTING PLATYPUS (& OTHER IMPORTANT ANIMALS) Ever been fishing really early on a bass pool or trout stream and seen a platypus pop up? It’s a great bonus to see these eccentric animals in their natural habitat but there are increasing concerns about their long-term viability. ● By John Newbery…

houtman abrolhos national park declared

WA Premier Mark McGowan has said that the creation of the Houtman Abrolhos National Park off Geraldton 400km north of Perth will both protect the area and make it more accessible. The island chain is famous for its coral, crystal clear waters, wildlife and its fishing. It includes North, East Wallabi and Rat Islands, which each have red dust airstrips to allow for day trips, but little infrastructure for tourism. To better provide for visitors to the park, the WA government has committed $10 million to building new jetties and installing toilets, shade shelters, trails and signage at East Wallabi and Beacon islands. It’s hoped that creation of this terrestrial park will support access to and management of the surrounding, already existing marine park and in time allow tourists to…
