And the winners are:

Come on down messers,
Jason Knowler, caught interfering with others cray pots fined $10000 and lost boat, gear, trailer and rec licence for 12 months

Ashley Jones, Lance Jones (father & son combo)caught taking abalone outside allowed hours, Jones Snr fined $600 Jones, Jnr fined $800 and both ordered to pay $180 costs.

Daylen Nathan failing to mark lobster pots with ID, 4 counts of pinching lobsters from others pots and 1 count of interfering with another's pot. Ordered to pay $1000 mandatory penalty plus fined $4500 plus costs of $180.

Kevin Sexton being in possession of more than 2 pots, fined $2500 plus $180 in costs.

All the above cases and perps were reported on the front page of the Coastal Times newspaper this week together with a big story about how Fisheries are going to burn your arse if you come down to Mandurah and take more crabs than allowed or under size crabs.

A highly visual display to those who seek to plunder our fisheries which we are custodians of for our kids, grand kids and future fishers.

Well done again fisheries.

Lets hope they didnt take any shortcuts to catch any of these people as I dont have alot of faith in their enforcement skills anymore...

The older you get the more you realize that no one has a f++king clue what they're doing.

Everyone's just winging it.

 Hopefully they catch a few more of the pricks! Tipped a few buckets of crabs out last season. When they start swinging scoop nets at you is priceless
