 Well done , I just happened too be looking at the new rules , and fyi the  moles are fair game till 15th oct. but I also noticed a rule about 

 transporting snaps caught outside ban area can only be transported thru ban area if no line fihing takes place ( within ban area , the expanded one), so i am reading if I get a pinkie this week outpast 

 the 5 , ( probabal) I then cannot stop inside area on way home to catch some skippy or squid ( which we do quite often) , seems a tad harsh and easy to get caught. 

 Thoughts? as surley its in our system for them to prove you did wrong , not beholdant on us to prove we are right.

Stupid. I do same have a good day ( early Finnish) catch squid or tailor on way in. It would be obvious to most that your doing no wrong. I wouldn’t chance it . Rule is rule .also take 2 litre cordial bottle to urinate in ( pee while moving) you never know

Ha, that line of thought doesn't wash with fisheries regulations

That premise is how things used to be, now it is up to you to prove that you have done no wrong, at least that's the way I see a lot of new rules and regulations not only for fishing.

Nit picking?

Mon, 2019-09-02 21:36

 Yeah cos just recently being up at shark bay , I made myself aware of the rules ( special) for up there , and even though 

 you can carry fish caught outside the banned zones thru closed zones , I cant see any rules conserning not line fishing as you pass through those zones.

 Gee , they dont make these things easy do they?
