No more weekly fishing report on-line.
« on: Thu 5 Jul 12:30 2018 »
I will no longer be posting a weekly fishing report on-line.
Instead, as of next week, July 13, I will be writing a full page of fishing info in the Friday Courier Mail.
The new fishing page will include weather, tides, news, upcoming events, whatís biting and you will also be able to send in photos of your catch or ask questions.
I think this move marks an acknowledgement of the popularity of recreational fishing.
In itís heyday, fishing pages in the news were the most read section, the reason people brought the paper. Over the last six months Iíve noticed a significant swing back to that way of think in media and tourism organisations.

     It's a shame but at least if it's in the friday paper now any serious fishos will get the info before they head off at 4am or earlier Saturday morning before the papers are out then pick up the saturday paper on the way home from the ramp at 9.
    Looking forward to the next trip

    I guess that's my point that a fishing section makes more sense on a Friday than a Saturday as most keen guys would only get the Saturday paper on the way home from fishing friday night/ satuday morning.
    Looking forward to the next trip

    Wouldn't fishing predictions be more useful than fishing reports?     ;)

    Who wants to know what someone caught last week?   8)

    Fishing predictions might be a world first!   :)

    This is very good news and recognition of the broader societal importance of recreational fishing. It is also recognition of your standing in the recreational fishing community and the recreational fishing media.
