Netting must stop

Today I have witnessed commercial fisherman at Godfrey's Beach in Stanley dragging nets and catching a very large quantity of salmon.
Over the last couple of days my family and other locals and tourists have been enjoying blackback and cocky salmon that have been caught along the beach at Godfrey's very close to the shore, but today (14th June, 2011) we discovered commercial fisherman with a beach seine net, the same commercial fisherman that caught salmon in the Cam River, loading up fish in a 4-by-8 foot boxer trailer and their 4WD.
I believe this is not fair for the recreational fishers of Stanley,

Adrian's (The Trout Stalker) Trout Seasons 2000 – 2015

(Adrian has supplied his "stats" in anticipation of this years season - Ed)

Here's my stats since moving down to Tassie back in March 2000. The first 4 years were a little on the low side (catch rate) due to me getting to know the rivers and where i could get in and fish them. After that and getting to know several farmers, land owners and the purchase of a pair of waders the fishing really went up from there on. Having access to many more sections of rivers and wading them really opened up some great fishing seasons for me from then on that's for sure.

Cheers
