Marron poachers fined

 See on the news yesterday and in the paper today that a pair of marron poachers got almost $100 grand in fines and their car confiscated for taking hundreds of marron out of season from Harvey dam.


Serves the greed bastards right, shame their names haven't been released.

Yabbies taste better. I like marron as pets. I find it hard to kill them now days. In trophy waters would have made fine larger.

Wow, that's a crazy fine but a good fine that's for sure.

I used to love going to Harvey Dam but just do not go near it now with all the idiots who just get smashed and leave rubbish everywhere.

A friend of mine was there earlier this year and saw a couple of groups fighting and one bloke who broke out a gun, pretty scary when he was there with his family and his young fella absolutely terrified by what was going on.

good to see them getting hammered with a good fine.  anyone showing this sort of blatant disregard should cop as much as possible whether it be crabs, marron, fish or crays imo.

Bash someone to the brink of death and get parole, steal crustacean's out of season, financial ruin and public shaming. And we all sit around and take it.
Bloke might have just lost his job because he didnt want to get the jab and was out to feed his family.
