Sail-World.com : Illegal fishing continuing - Will they ever learn?
Illegal fishing continuing - Will they ever learn?


Jarrod Day

This may come as a bit of a rant but I am still perplexed as to why such people continue to do the wrong thing. By that I mean the continual catches of fish above and beyond a recreational anglers daily allowed bag limit.

This has come about because of an influx of calamari that has swarmed the Mornington pier in Port Phillip Bay.

Around this time each year, thousands of sizeable calamari swarm this area for reasons unknown but anglers in their droves descend on the pier so much so that it becomes almost standing room only. Now, I have nothing against hoards of anglers targeting the influx of calamari during this time as it is quite easy to catch them and sure, they do only live for 18 or so months but I don’t understand why a minority of anglers have to exceed their set limits.

This all cam about due to a handful of anglers not sticking to t he law. Basically, one angler was caught by fisheries officers with over 1oo calamari in his possession. When he was questioned and the officers about to check his bucket, he kicked it into the water so they couldn’t could them all. For this, he was remanded and taken for questioning. The next evening, another two anglers were caught again exceeding their bag limit. Don’t these people learn? Will they ever stop being so selfish? If they only took a step back, caught their bag limit one day and if they were desperate to get more could head back the next night for another ten if it meant so much to them. If they saying goes 'no fish is worth dying for', then it can be said that 'no fish is worth having a criminal record for'!

On a lighter note, the recreational bag limit for calamari in Victoria is ten (10) calamari per person per day; it’s not that hard to remember is it?


This week after being stuck assisting with the building of my new house, I decided to venture into the garage to find something new to enlighten all those calamari hunting enthusiasts out there.

After sifting through piles and pile of lures, I stumbled across a new lure that has just hit the market.

Japanese lure manufacturing company Duel which is also known as Yo-Zuri has just released their new range of EZ-Q CAST artificial squid jigs. With a few close up photos and a dive into the specific details of this new concept they have developed, I explain why this jig will rival all others that are currently on the market.

Over the last two weeks Lee Brake has looked at the benefits of using jerk shads and curl tails when deep water jigging. This week Lee look’s at two more top-notch deepwater soft plastic options, the squid and shrimp imitation. The natural bait of many species, these soft plastic designs can be down right deadly as Lee explains.

Gary Brown re-visits the correct anchoring procedures to better your success when fishing. With so many different variables that can come into play, Gary goes through the major factors including wind, current, eddies and wave action which can impede the anchoring process.

Carl Highland has a look around the offshore scene off Tasmania’s coastline. With high water temperatures and offshore currents pushing along the east coast there is plenty of pelagic activity from marlin, mahi,mahi, yellowfin tuna and yellowtail kingfish all taking advantage of massive bait balls of redfish and mackerel.
