I doubt he's going to care about a few campgrounds.

It is sad to say, over the last 2 years it is getting extremely had to catch many fish at all around this area. Most people who do fish here can understand exactly what I am talking about. Used to catch 100's " in a few hours.... now your lucky if you bring home 20 - 30 after being out there of hours on end.
Even with closing 15% of Moreton Bay to recreational fishing... you still have heaps of places to fish in the bay.....
and closing 50% to professional fishing.... it is about dam time :+ they troll close in the bay, kill our Turtles, Dugongs, Dolphins and other marine life.... and if they are not stopped there will be more than 15% of the bay closed to recreational fishing. I am ok with them closing 15% to recreational fishing and 50% to professional fishing because I want everyones kids to enjoy fishing, and the animal in our beautiful bay.

After they cleaned out their nets and took off up the bay further we went and had a look at the place they did it. We saw DEAD and INJURED Turtles, Dugongs, and Dolphins. It broke my heart and I was hesterical because there was nothing that we could do.... Only call marine parks and tell them what we saw. They then go out and see if they can save any of them.
