Pedro1 Offline
I have just heard from local gov't that various North Americans have started to complain about the safety and health of our fish.
Having listened with great understanding and patience-they have decided to ban fishing from our waters until further notice.
The main reasons for this ban.
1. lead weights are being thrown into the sea with casual disdain(poisioning the fish)-we are not allowed to throw our car batteries in the sea.
2. All of A.C. should become a marine park.
3. various people smoke cannabis(while fishing) and throw their spliffs into the sea-the fish get stoned and end up floating on their backs and subsequently drown.
4.Steel hooks are considered barbaric and definitely show no thought to hurting of aforesaid fish.
5.Many fish lose their entire families within a couple of days,and that is just not nice.
6. who wants to listen to stories about the one that got away.

That's a grouper not a groper.
A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?
