    You know mate....there are various ways of saying things.
    Couty's first whinge was about fish handling techniques.....Which was just silly in my opinion.Laying fish down carefully on some wet boat carpet (that was not at all hot) does not do fish any harm.....then he went on to complain about possession limits.
    He then went on to say he doesnt get on the site because he gets angry when he sees this kind of thing.....So basically he doesnt ever get on the site(apparently) but loves to have a whinge when something is done wrong.
    He could have just said....'Pete watch your possession limits' and I would have taken it on board.
    My issue here was how quickly people are keen to attack someone rather than simply point it out.......Read the post and you tell me if it is a kindly manner.And its worse from someone who never has much input.
    I have pointed out to several times that the fish were all released.....A redneck tosser would have kept and killed the fish.
    Anyway I can appreciate what your saying and agree with you on stocking groups etc etc.

    Righto folks, a bucket of water for all.

    Yep, Pistol did a couple of silly things. Firstly by putting too many fish in a livewell not deisgned for that volume, exceeded legal bag limit, but probably the silliest is to have taken a pic & put it on a website. Im sure he has learned his lesson.


    For everyone's benefit
    I can tell you that over loading a livewell can & will kill fish. Even if they swim away, they may have had a lethal dose. Death can occur anywhere from hours to days after release. I've been to that many BASS comp weigh-ins & then stayed behind to see the dead fish when all the boats are long gone.

    Fish layed on dry carpet is bad for them. Takes slime layer off their skin & untreated will lead to fungal or bacterial infection. Can be fatal.

    Dropping bass back into a school can scatter the school in some situations. Instead of overloading a livewell & risking the wrath of your peers, simply motor off 50 meters, release your 2 fish each & continue fishing.

    I spoke to a few high ranking bass anglers after this incident and they said it is a common thing to do maybe not 9 bass but atleast 5-6 so they dont spook the school and then they pick out which are the best ones (heaviest)and put the rest back.

    Pistol Pete,
    It seems that despite all of the above advice regarding the possession laws you are not prepared to listen.
    How hard would it have been to catch four, move off the school release those four. Return to the school catch another four and repeat the process rather than ignore the current laws.
    I might tell you that I was on Borumba on the 14th and Fisheries were out there as well checking boats.
    They would not give a damn if you were going to release them. With that many in your possession they would have thrown the book at you.

    If this is so then they'd be breaking the comp rules. Buts thats a different issue. I agree with everything Fitzy says, and he's got plenty of runs behind him to back himself up. Lets just get on with fishing and do the right thing, not like those who are breaking the law on purpose.

    Re: Lake Borumba 18-09-07

    I would like to know why should competition fishermen/women be exempt?

    I have first hand experience of seeing the end result of a Bream comp held in Brisbane involving rather high profile anglers.

    The competition had finished,And the winners were at home planning on what they were going to spend their $10 000 on,While washing their boats and rods.Meanwhile the fish that got them their precious money were dying at an alarming rate in a large tank.

    These fish had been put through hell.

    Dragged from racks and rock walls,Stuffed in live wells for hours,Smashed around the wells for upto a 1 hour car trip,Then suffocated for a few more minutes while being weighed,Dumped into a large tank for upto three days.And were then left neglected by their captors.

    And we glorify these people?

    This was my first real look behind the scenes at a comp.

    I was absolutely disgusted.

    I made it my bussiness to stay after work helping where I could,And I did my best to try and get these fish back to the water in the best condition possible.Alot didn't make it.
    The underlying spirit of angling,Is that the skill of the angler,Is pitted against the instinct and strength of the fish,And that the latter is entitled to an even chance for his life. Regards, Hardb8.Kickin tails and razin scales since 1979.

    I would like to think they would check but the last three or four times i have been pulled up they have never checked my live well once, they have looked at my stocked impoundment permit, had a bit of a chat and once i was asked for my boat licence. At boondooma i had one fisheries officer insist that my motor was way to big for my boat and after climbing into my boat to look at compliance plate and having a 20min discussion about it, he still did not look in the live well at any stage and you could hear the 2 bass splashing every time the pump kicked in. Go figure
    Now when i had my little tinny and i used to keep a couple of yellas for the kids to eat they would always check the keeper net hanging over the side of the boat.

    Nice fish anyhow Pete looks like you had a good session.
