I reside on the South Coast of New South Wales in the St.Georges Basin area which is situated within the bounderies of the Shoalhaven. I take many of my landscapes and seascapes within this area in an effort to share the beauty that it holds.

    Beautiful foreboding clouds Les!

  • Thank you Di…I was out trying out a new lens when I took this, and I was lucky enough, to catch the last rays of the sun hitting the water before the clouds emptied their rain all over Jervis Bay.

    looks like a good fishing spot Les

  • G’Day Mark, Just behind me , from where I was taking this shot, is the start of the no go zone of the Marine Park. I fish just at the start of the rocks in the foreground using plenty of burley to bring the fish into the legal zone. More and more I am seeing fishing zones being established where the recreational fisher(person) is restricted in what they can and can’t do. It could be my imagination but, to me, it always seems to be the best fishing spots that become no fish areas…strange that ;~)

    too right Les, we have a snapper ban on now and have to travel stupid distances to go fishing.
    yet i still see commercial fishing pulling tons of fish out without much regard for sustainability or impact to the food chain. make you wonder about the people making the rules. I’ll have to start netting from my kayak to get a feed soon. keep up the burley!

  • On the positve side here, they have stopped commercial fishing in Jervis bay and near by St. Georges Basin (where I live) by the trawlers and we are noticing an increase in fish stocks. But, that also includes the bigger things that bite and as I am floating around in an old B-Line canoe I only have a couple of mm of fibreglass between my butt and their teeth..:~(
    In St.Georges Basin (which has one small entrance to the sea) we are seeing an increase in Bull sharks with the occassional juvenile white pointer and even some tiger sharks have been spotted in the upper reaches. I have to admit, that it makes me wary about going for a paddle, and fish, in the dark. I have already had “something” give the canoe a nudge and a couple of bumps while out fishing. You would be suprised how fast I managed to paddle back to shore when that happened…lol
