But yeah we had a cracking day, few crays from the pots, Dhuie, Baldies, black arse and a huge Flatty. Back in by lunch, was a bit sloppy but very light winds made it easy. Come say g'day if you see us again.

 Yeah few of the other boys were spewing up there as they'd gone the day before in pretty average conditions. The forecast was way out but I just took a punt and it paid off.

It's called "Milking"

Tue, 2021-01-26 19:52

Fisheries were probably milking for information on others operating in the black as well.   For example we need X amount of crays  but if you can't supply them.....who will?

Yep, much like drug cartels,

Yep, much like drug cartels, the police get involved and try to get as much information to see how high up the chain they can go. 

Good to see a decent fine got dished out.

To prove in court that it wasn't a one off thing, show their pattern of behaviour.

The magistrate said

Wed, 2021-02-03 16:45

The magistrate said 'theoretically' Dennis junior could have been fined $160,000.

Penalties included mandatory fines plus an additional penalty based on the weight of the rock lobster.

"I have to impose penalties that will deter them and others from committing similar offences," Mr Miocevich said.

He imposed a $31,810 fine on Dennis junior, an $18,035 fine on Dennis senior and a fine of $19,830 on Weeks.

The three were each ordered to pay costs of $780.70.

Mr Miocevich cancelled the recreational licences of the two men saying they had abused the right to hold a licence 'for profit'.

He did not ban them from holding a licence in future.
