    Spearfishing a clubbie on the gold coast

    Just wondering if anybody can help with some info?
    Tried to go spearfishing today at kirra reef and were going in off the beach when the local clubbies informed us that 1. We weren't allowed to go in off the beach cos the whole beach is a bathing reserve from the groyne at kirra to the groyne at Tallebudgera ( there is a newly installed sign at the club that just has spearfishing with the red circle thru it saying not allowed )and 2. the kirra reef is off limits to fishing as it is within the 400 metres of the bathing reserve.
    After this incident almost resulting in bloodshed i would love to find where to turn for information, where i can verify one 30cm square sign means the whole ocean.

    mate i know a few down this way i will gladly let you spear after today

    they had their surf boat out in the river and being abslout a$$es they pulled their boat up on the ramp then proceded to park their car and trailer not on the ramp but across the ramp they then lefted the bot onto the triler and proceded to wash it down while blocking the way not alowing me to retirve my boat meanwhile the misses and kid was left holding the boat in the rain
    they then proceded to have their meeting and a beer while still blocking the way then when i asked if they could move up and out of the way i was told to "not to have a cow and to relaxe" and then after telling them i hope they move soon as i wanted to get my boat i was told to bugger off
    beeing 8 of them and only one of me i didn't want to push it any ferther but needless to say when they next ask me for money i will be telling them to bugger off! [smiley=angryfire.gif]

    Nothing worth spearing at kirra anyway.

    Try Palmy, heaps of big Tiger sharks there to keep you entertained.

    Thought Palmy might be a bit far to swim

    Nah, with flippers you'd do it easy.

    Heath, I reckon he would do it easy without flippers, after seeing that first tiger closeup

    I think you will find Kirra is classed as open water...so you can spear there.

    I too have speared on kirra reef but not in the last 15 yrs ???

    I too had one try and stop us from entering the water beside the groin to spear the reef, many years ago - didn't work, ahh... those were the days, you could do no harm and still do it! possibly that clubbie found some rubber stamped authority later in life
    What about entering on the other side?

    What authority do they act for and under what legislation ?

    Thank them for the information and go ahead and spear, they have no authority.

    Unfortunatly some volunteers thinks they are Fishing Inspectors, Water Police etc....

    I have also had a similar thing at a boat ramp. They moved when I started to reverse at there boat. Just pretend to be a silly old fart, they will move, trailers can do a lot of damage to boats when reversed correctly
