too much too late?

A recent announcement in South Australia could see snapper off limits to many of the state’s anglers for up to three years. This drastic measure is in response to a long term decline in fish stocks. If something isn’t done – and done soon – the stocks will collapse altogether. The final decision will be made soon after this edition goes to print. Keep an eye out on the Fishing World website for more up-to-date news. The announcement has split the opinions of rec fishos. Some see the measure as far too restrictive. They say it will do irreversible damage to businesses and the pastimes of thousands of South Australian fishos. Of course they’re right! On the flipside, many fishos agree tough measures are needed to save the fishery. Also hard…

top tactics for flatties

As seasons change many anglers turn their attention to flathead. Seasonal variations, new lures and techniques and changes in the waterway make each year’s flattie season a fresh challenge. Flathead seek food in a variety of locations. Some fish following the tide up into the mangroves while others hunt in channels and along weed edges. A few will shadow a bait school and pick off fish or prawns. Although flathead are aggressive predators, they can be selective, sometimes preferring crabs, small eels and mud gudgeons. Additionally, their activities can be affected by a range of factors. Finding concentrations of feeding fish under a variety of conditions, then identifying their lure and retrieve preference is the key to better catches. While anglers can use previous knowledge, each day presents new conditions and requires…

diy release weight!

If you enjoy reef fishing, a release weight is a very handy tool to have onboard. The good news is that it’s very easy and cheap to make your own release weight. So, why would you need a release weight? The main reason is to maximise the survival of fish you release. Popular species such as snapper can suffer from barotrauma if caught in water deeper than 10m and the problem can get more pronounced the deeper you fish. Barotrauma occurs as gases expand inside the fish’s body when it’s pulled towards the surface. The effects and severity of barotrauma injuries increase with depth of capture. Different species are more susceptible than others. Studies have shown that it’s not possible to prevent barotrauma by retrieving the fish slowly and hoping that it…
