Well, I am constantly suprised with how this site develops and where it goes each day. In one forum you can have an exciting discussion from concerned people about the state of our fishery and in another we witness why people should be so concerned about the state of play in general.

Thanks for your comment.......We were on a chartered boat..10 of us from Singapore with 5 Indonesian crews on board...we did release some of the fishes that were still strong though.

Commercial or Charter?

Fri, 2006-11-10 13:03

Looks like the deck of a commercial boat rather than a charter boat.

Check out the size of those little fish kept.

Not a very nice sight and like you say, gives an insight into the fishing pressures overseas. If that pic was taken over here all hell would break loose.

Can we get a comment for Rokmansnu on this?

i am pretty sure that it is

i am pretty sure that it is a charter boat my friends.

welcome to the 'no bag limit, no size limit' waters of malaysia, singapore and indonesia =)

many many pics like these, which recieve a lot of 'great catch' and 'nice day out'

wait til you see some of the catches from taiwan... where its 'all keep' because u can sell it back to the markets and recover ur costs, plus maybe a little bit more.

dont forget, bag

Fri, 2006-11-10 14:05

dont forget, bag and size limits are well and good, but X them by 20 on board and it starts to go a little pair shape, it was good when a boat limit was in place but the west coast review changed all that

doesnt look much different to a charter on Reel Affair I went on with my old man about 15 years ago. i won the trip in a fishing comp.

We went up and fished off the bow of the boat so we could let the littlys go ourselves - the deckies would just pounce on anything we caught, kill it and chuck it in your bin. At the end of the day we got a big garbage bag full of fillets, all mixed up together in a big ball of flesh. what a waste.

I went on the same boat about 5 (maybe it was 7 ) years ago with a mate who won the same comp, and we got one norwester between us for the whole day.

I remember someone catching a mackie on the trip 15 years ago. The deckie tailed it and proceeded to swing it like a baseball bat against the deck. Sickens me to remember it. Me and Dad were shocked and we have killed our fair share of fish over the years!

I've only been on a small

Fri, 2006-11-10 16:04

I've only been on a small handful of charters however, the ones I've been on have been pretty strict much so I was quite impressed.

Went on Arafura Blue Water charters in Darwin, 4 big jewies were kept, but that is very acceptaple between 12 anglers (all the smaller ones were released, at the recommendation of the deckie and the anglers did so without question)... about one golden snapper per person kept and a few other bits and pieces but between 12 anglers it was very acceptable. At the end of the day every one had a decent feed.
