Obstructing a Boat Ramp – Don’t Do This!

It’s the responsibility of all anglers to respect the rights of other anglers and freshwater recreational users. Preventing other boating anglers from using a boat ramp at a public inland water is not only disrespectful behaviour, it is prohibited by law and may cost the perpetrator more than a social rebuff by fellow anglers.

Redmap Project

Winter in Tasmania seems to be a time to slow down, pop on the kettle and usually in my family, share a flu or two. I like to look out of my window at the woolly weather, but clearly this is not the case for all those keen (crazy) fishers and divers out there who still have been reporting unusual fish sightings over this chilly winter period. For that the Redmap team thank you! You are the stars that make the collection of this previously unrecorded information, and the Redmap website, such a success.
