Boating safety offences you should be aware of.

Holiday time is almost here and you can be sure boating and fisheries will be out on the water doing their stuff.

I was having a chat to the fisheries guys a short while ago and asked them;

What are the most common boating safety offences people make that are easily avoided?

And they came up with the top 5.

I have compiled them all into this short video to ensure you stay safe AND save money in unnecessary fines, while out on the water this silly season.

POSTCRIPT: EPIRB registration stickers will no longer be issued (from Sept 2015). Proof of registration will need to be carried – Click here for EPIRB rego change details.


For other safety tips including a neat storage idea to secure your rods while in transit without having to use a cargo net, check out our previous blog post here:

And for a bit of holiday entertainment, check out these young guns catching fish bigger than themselves during the last school holidays.

Kids will remember a fishing experience far more than a day video gaming – so get the kids outdoors this holidays.

You never know what you might catch!

Ryan Moody started his fishing career on the reef boats before catching bucket list marlin for the likes of champion heavy tackle angler Johnno Johnson, INXS and the King of Sweden. Branching out in the late 80's to guided barramundi fishing, Ryan has made a name for himself as a Big Barramundi specialist and to date has put clients onto over 2000 metre plus barra. That is over 2 kilometres of metre plus barra! With attitudes changing from 'keep all you can' towards catch and release, Ryan has decided to share his extensive knowledge and hopefully inspire people of all ages to get out from behind the computer screen/TV and into the fishing outdoors lifestyle he has spent his life perfecting.
