Estuary / River / Bay / Re: possible ramp closure
« Last post by mighty quinn on Today at 07:57 PM »
From a quick google sounds like bribie locals hated it anyways because they used some of the ramp for it mind this was back in 2011 but would not surprise me if a local or someone got tired of it, tho more then likley the wind that has been about and kicking up the swell did the damage combined with other factors.
They have added more lanes since then,my guess is a big heavy boat has drifted into it on a roaring run up tide,it's a bugger of a ramp for the novice when the tides running,I've seen ally boats punch big dents in their side trying to tie up there.

Hard work trying to find a prawn in the Pine this morning. Tried all my usual spots but could only manage one or two per throw at best. Gave up the prawning for a while and used some of the greasies to look for a bream. Caught about a dozen, but only kept four. Went back to the prawns but they hadn't improved, so I quit about  9.00 around the top of a very big tide - might have had something to do with the lack of prawns.
Cheers Freeeedom

Mediocre day today 22 bass and numerous forkies plus left camera at home so no photos so it did not happen, First spot looked good on the sounder and after a triple forkie hook up we moved on.
Ended up on the floats and at least we were getting the occasional bass on a 3 to one ratio ( 3 forkies 1 Bass)
Percy gorged himself downing at least 12 forkies
So we went exploring and no more forkies but also no bass.
In the meantime Andrew and his mates tied up to the floats and 35 bass and no forkies .
When they moved off we took over the spot and landed more bass and no forkies.
Cheers
Ray

It took a While, but Me and  first timer Lee, finally found some prawns at Carbrook. 200 metres downstream of the boat ramp, where we launched 2 hours earlier. Happ to go home with 3/4 of a bucket.

PM to be sent MQ.

Below is the Abstract from the luderick paper.

I agree that there are a number of styles of fishing that are fading into the past. Particularly those that do not require advertising the latest or greatest gadget or widget.


Abstract. During the past two decades there has been a major decline in the luderick (Girella tricuspidata) population and fishery in the coastal areas of southern Queensland, Australia. This region is the northern limit of the range of luderick. An analysis of annual time series information from the luderick fishery and from sea surface temperature records from 1976 to 2015 found a moderate and significant negative correlation (Pearson r 0.39, P , 0.05) between water temperature and population abundance in southern Queensland. Previous studies of juvenile and adult luderick indicate their sensitivity to elevated water temperature at the northern limit of their range, further supporting the hypothesis that declines in population abundance of luderick in southern Queensland are associated with increased water temperature. Other possible factors for the luderick population decline (overfishing and habitat loss) are discussed. Any future increases in coastal water temperatures in eastern Australia may result in further southward shifts of the luderick population, and may have similar effects on other fish species that have their northern range limits in southern Queensland.

Dredging underway in the swingbasin in Brisbane River at junction of Cooper channel.

Be interesting if will affect prawns in short term as trawlers  arent working that area.
