COVID-19 Update: What it means for fishing
Here's a friendly reminder of how you can get your fishing fix, whether you're going to be in Level 2 or Level 3:
- Level 3: The boat/yacht/jetski will need to stay at home, but there's still plenty of ways to catch a feed. Whip out the surfcasters and head to the beach, or try squid fishing - there's plenty of safe places to give it a shot and they're just a stone's throw from the city. Wherever you're fishing just give other fishos some breathing room - your health and untangled lines will thank you for it! If you've never tried kayak fishing, now probably isn't the time to learn.
- Level 2: All non-commercial fishing allowed, including from powered craft. Stay safe and have fun out there.
