How lucky are Darwin fishos?

Post by Matt Flynn » Sat Jun 04, 2011 1:18 pm

Another trawler wreck has just been sunk at the Fenton Patches, wide of Darwin :mrgreen:

In addition to a hull and pontoon sunk there a few weeks ago :mrgreen:

And the 800 culverts are still being laid at Lee Point, near Darwin :mrgreen:

This is in addition to the wrecks already sunk in the harbour :mrgreen:

And all the rivers that have been closed to gill nets in the past few years :mrgreen:

And the gill net ban that covers Shoal Bay, Darwin Harbour, Bynoe Harbour, Tapa Bay, Ida Bay and Turnbull Bay :mrgreen:

How lucky are Darwin fishos :fishing: :catch:

No wonder the tackle shops in Darwin look busy :cheers:

Great to see the disintergrating wooden hulls at the Fentons bolstered by these steel monoliths. Happy for someone else other than the FFF crew do the work as well!!

The writing was always on the wall regarding the WW2 and cyclone tracy wrecks. Rec fishing is now garrenteed for another generation.

Beasty out.

No point in fishing them yet, but they are within spitting distance of the main rick mills site. Unless your spitting chips, then its twice as far because of the aero dynamic properties and mass of a mushed up potato mixed with saliva inhibiting your trajectory x pie squarded root of curvature of the earth divided by wind velocity.

Theres a few bat and bait fish there at the mo, but its a works in progess as they distribute more culverts.

U

I reckon those sites will get the pelagics hanging out there more often.

In hindsight I would wish to withdraw my previous comment.

I still think you guys in the territory are unbelievably lucky to have so many great & varied fishing options.

On thinking about it , seeing as I dont live in NT , accordingly Im ot effected, & I think I really should not comment weather or not NT fisho's should have Boat Rego, Boat liscening etc.

its not for me to comment.

We are stuck with it down here , Boat Rego, Boat Liscence, Fishing Liscence & I have to say in inland NSW we really get nothing for it,........I know, thats our bad luck.
