you are all a bunch of f)$&ktards... every single one of you.

so,

 

whenever the government/fisheries/etc implement or propose a change in either bag limits, marine parks, demersal closures, etc, every single person on here jumps up and down about it, and whinges like a mutherf@@&$er about how wrong it is, and how its their right in WA to catch fish, or a feed, or teach their kids how to fish, blah blah blah.

 

as soon as some one wants to actually do something proactive about it - http://fishwrecked.com/forum/keep-australia-fishing-convoy-we-need-you - we get 3 takers, out of a potential membership on fishwrecked that is in the 10's of thousands.

 

hang your heads in shame.

 

if these new marine parks, etc manage to get through the cracks, and you did nothing about it, then you've got no one to blame except yourselves, and i dont want to hear you whinge about it on here.

 

fair enough if youve got a legitimate excuse, but if your anything like me, you would have definately taken a sickie to actually go fishing a few times, and this should be no different.

 

load up on piss or something and make a day of it, but for f&@& sake, get around this guys.

Yep you don't mice your words mate & you have hit the nail on the head hence why I feel like a hypocritical phucker to support this whilst not being able to attend due to living down south & not being able to get off on call.

I am hanging my head in shame, our fishing rights are going to the dogs & apathy will kill it all for us. I hope to phuck this thread starts to gain some supoort for the rally

Ok everyone.WE are still

Thu, 2012-08-09 20:08

Ok everyone.

WE are still refining the plan as we go...we apologise to everyone who can't make it midweek...we need to get plenty of media coverage and that was behind the timing. We hoped early notice would help some people get time off.

At this stage, we are meeting at Leeuwin Boat Ramp for a 2.30 departure into town...to get to Langley Park around 3.30. We want as many people towing boats as possible.

The exact route is still to be confirmed...it may go past some strategic areas (such as pollies' offices!).

The rally at Langley Park will be from 4-6.

Beers are apparently on Scotto! Excellent!

Anyway, we also want to cater for people coming from north and east.

We are thinking those coming from north meet at the boat ramp at Hillarys, and those from the east at Bluewater Morley.

If that doesn't work, come straight to the rally.

People can also come down after work if they work in the city.

We want banners, signs, etc with messages like I Fish I Vote, Don't Lock Us Out, etc.

We'll have some prizes for the best ones.

We'll update the details at www.keepaustraliafishing.com.au and also on the various fishing websites as we go.

We may be looking for some volunteers to help out on the day...or if you think you can help in way, just PM me.

We'll have a flyer doing the rounds on FB, etc, shortly, as soon as we get all the necessary approvals confirmed.

We are getting it organised as fast as we can, but there quite a few processes to go through, so patience is appreciated.

This is our last chance to have our say on this and tell the pollies we don't want to be locked out of our own oceans. There is no more time for apathy. If you can spare a few hours do it.

We need a big turnout or our vocal opponents will be all over us.

Cheers,

Scotty

Well seeing that we now must

Thu, 2012-08-09 20:48

Well seeing that we now must provide an excuse note to the Teacher Mr Scotto(dont know if you want my now aged parents to sign it) i will be away with work down south for about 10 days. If you must know i tried to alter the travel arrangments for me to leave on Thursday so i could attend.

Think of it this way Scotto. Its not that people dont care, its just alot of people have other commitments already. And even if there are people that dont care or may even support the lock outs why should they have to post up an excuse?

Good on the blokes that can make it, and even more so the blokes who are in Perth and CAN take time of work to attend, but should you really bag out all the people that cant/arent going if they haven't posted up a valid excuse?

I know its something you are very passionate about and so am i, but trying to encourage more people to attend by making them feel guilty isnt the right way. Try and encourage them by stating WHY you want their help, how much them attending means to you and to fishing in general and you might have more people sympathetic to your cause, even non fishos.

Geez even use a bit of marketting and 'Carrots on Sticks' and say there will be a raffle ticket given to everyone who attends and the winner will get a Stella or Saltiga or some other 'Carrot'. I am sure if enough blokes are so passionate about this threw in $20 each you could afford a big enough 'carrot'. I cant make it but would be more than willing to donate some money to go towards a 'Carrot' to attract more people if numbers is what you want. Dont know if this is something you have considered Scottywiper?

Also worth noting is that many of these people not going may have already written letters to government MPs, to local MP's or even to the submissions to the proposals.

 

I hope the day goes good to all who attend, and i do hope there is a good turn out. I applaude ALL who can make it there and ALL who would have liked to have made it there.

not looking for excuses buz, and i do not want people to post up their excuse if they have one. THAT IS NOT WHAT I AM DOING.

 

I understand a lot of people cant make it due to work, not being in metro, etc, , and I know a lot of people do care.

 

its just on scottywiper's original post, 3 people RSVP'd. 3 people, out of a membership that is in the 10's of thousands.  3 PEOPLE.

 

forgive me for putting it how i did, but unfortunately, being controversial has FAR more impact than being nice and friendly.

 

i wanted this back in the spotlight, and in 14 hours, its had twice the replies of scottywipers original post has had in 7 weeks. point proven.

Attention grabbing emotive headline to stoke the fires, can't hang the lad for it. The bag limits continue to reduce, yet we continue to complain & the commercial sector keeps trucking on laughing at us.

I am trying to ditch my work commitments because this thread has just struck a chord with me, I no longer want to continue being bent over copping the shaft because of apathy.

By the way, if you live regional do something similar...doesn't have to be on that particular day, just somewhere around that time.

Albany crew have organised one on the Saturday and there is a chance of something in Exmouth too...let your local paper know and get a crew happening.

Would be great to have places like Karratha, Hedland and Broome involved.

Get some pics and put them on Facebook.

I have emailed the fishing clubs in Broome and Karratha, waiting to hear back from them.

Apathy

Fri, 2012-08-10 08:47

Have to commend Scotto, on grabbing everyones attention. Apathy is what will kill our fishing rights. Yes it would be great if every person on this site could attend, but we all know this can't happen. Nobody needs to give a reason if they cannot attend. It is just a case of bringing to everyones attention. I'm fortunate enough in my job to be able to attend with boat in tow. Lets just support the rally in any way we can

Bully Tactics

Fri, 2012-08-10 12:21

3 positives out of the thousands of members you talk about Scotto could indicate that your idea, however good it may seem to you, is not supported in the form that you have shaped it. Regardless, I am offended that you classify us as a bunch of apathetic Fwitts. We all have our views and opinions and it's pretty inappropriate that you should use such bully-boy language bacause things haven't worked out the way you wanted them to. Go do what you think is right mate but please, show some respect for the members here and their right to do what they feel is right. Damned if I am going to offer you excuses for what decisions I make mate. Sure, a hip replacement kind of restricts me but if the cause was such I am sure I would try to make an effort.

Fri, 2012-08-10 13:19

i'll tow the boat around in Karratha if something does come about, we've got enough of them we could block the burrup road home at 60km/h all the way to town, oh wait that already happens everyday, bloody shiftworkers.....

I'll see if anything comes from the fishing club then.

Not Inspiring

Not Inspiring

 

This has done the opposite for me, even if I lived down south I would not attend now.

 

People if ya have a sickie – I hope there is no media coverage on ya, Sickies are for when you are sick. (a few bosses may not be impressed with this, no job no fishing)

 

If you make it on the news make sure you have a beer in hand, to make it look real  Australian and professional   

 

Scotto - not real inspiring or ethical I believe.

Scott you are a down right w!#nker! Not all of us jump up and down on here about that so what makes all of us a bunch of F-Tards?

 

Get your facts right douchbag! FYI i wont be coming. As a result of your POS attitude to people you dont actually know.

your not going to fight for your right to fish because someone called you a name?? pathetic! that post wasnt posted to get you guys angry is was to make you click on and take a look! no where did he ask for excuses he just said fair enough!  if you guys got half as angry about these closures (which once in force will only widen!) as you did scotto calling you a name! we wouldnt have this problem!

On the money Jeff. Me and Scotto have had our ding dongs in the past but I can see all he's doin here is trying to make everyone 'WAKEUP' it's nothing personal you bunch of girls, as you say once in place they will never be repealed they will only be added to.This affects anyone who reads and subscribes to this site your kids as well.

Scotto, Love to see people

Fri, 2012-08-10 13:56

Scotto, Love to see people passionate about a cause mate, but in my opinion you have gone about this in a very offensive and non inspiring way mate. Can u explain what gives you the right to call us the names you have when I guestimate you have not met 80% of FW members, and dont know us from a bar of soap. Like everything mate theres ways of talking to people, and I'm sure if your attitude was a little better people might want to listen.

Seriously, people's fishing

Fri, 2012-08-10 14:31

Seriously, people's fishing rights are at stake and some are using Scotto's post as an excuse not to turn up? I'm pretty sure he was just trying to get people to take notice, in his own way!

No wonder the greenies love us as a target.

Anyway, if this thread bothers you read the original one called "Keep Australia Fishing convoy".

Scotto

Fri, 2012-08-10 14:47

Scotto i applaud what you are doing and how passionate you are about this subject-and i believe all rec fishers are. When this was originally posted i asked why this couldn't be organised on a weekend and you replied there were reasons for this and they would be explained, I have yet to hear these valid reasons ?. Is disrupting the traffic flow around the city between 3-4 o'clock-which is when i assume most of the boats will be arriving at langley park-really the best way of getting joe public on the side of fishers JMO. Also the mention of beers being consumed at the rally-i'm hoping this was a joke-is probably not the best image to be portraying IMO.

Again scott i applaud your efforts in organising this rally and your devotion to this cause. IMO a weekend rally would have seen a huge turnout and not have incovenienced joe public on there way home from work.

Gday Sabre,There are a few

Fri, 2012-08-10 15:01

Gday Sabre,

There are a few issues in play with weekday against weekend, this is something we have discussed at length as both have negatives and positives, one of the main ones is the need for mainstream media coverage which is far more likely midweek. There is also an issue with access to facilities on weekends as well.

WE know it won't suit everyone, but hopefully giving people a few weeks' notice will help.

Just been in to chat with

Fri, 2012-08-10 18:02

Just been in to chat with boys at BW Morley, and myself as many more of us are or in my case was ill inforned of the nitty gritty to all this, its BS that we gota stand up to. Gets ya agro when u find out the real truth to it all. they are forming and leaving from Morley at 2:30 so a whole day off is not needed. Ill be makin an effort to get there and spreadin the word. If all this continues, apparently Oz will have 75% of the world's marine parks. This has nothin to do with preservin fish stocks its all wank. I questioned the impact of such a rally, but theyre confident of a big impact, at the end of the day, you gota do somethin to fight fir yer right to fish.

Yep and then listen to the commentary after

Fri, 2012-08-10 18:22

Wasn't that long ago the ABC had this wanker on going on about how cruel fishing is and that catch and release was a blood sport just like the posh fox hunters in Europe. Much to my disgust the majority of calls to the station were from those who opposed fishing and the few who called in to challenge the commentary were pretty much run off the air.

I can just imagine the commentary from these types of people when a city is shut down by a convoy of people who tow toys around seemingly funded by the mining boom.

It's all well and good to express concern about what's going on and good for those who do. Just don't expect to come away banging your chest because you thought you had a win and got on TV. There are a LOT of people out there who don't give a rats about fishing and in fact, probably ride surfboards and blame the burley trails for all the shark attacks we have.

Personally, I love fishing, I love hunting but I am a big believer in preserving the environment. Where does that leave me???? Basically, the answer to that is that I take pride in how I go about things and stick within the rules.

Good luck to those who participate. It will be interesting see the result.

some of you are totally missing the point of this post

Fri, 2012-08-10 19:35

FFS ... this is about reducing out ability to fish, not the fact that Scotto called you names.

He certainly achieved his aim and got your attention tho. 

Its time to stop the nansy pansy bickering and bring your balls to the party. 

But ... if the hat fits, wear it :P

Bit harsh Scotto, you don't know what people have going on in thier lives & just because people don't post in your thread doesn't mean they aren't going. Your a presumtious little prick, I'll give you that much. I was thinking of going but your garbage has just put me off, I don't need to be around a moron like you.

Blokes offering to shout you guys (plural) a few coronas while you jointly protest against what will only be the thin edge of the wedge to start with, but because he called all of us forumites a naughty name you've taken it personally and your not going?

Maybe more than a teaspoon of concrete is required around here.
