FADs season winds up
THE warm water fishing season along NSW is now winding up with many saltwater fishers now diverting their attention to other species such as snapper, bream and luderick.
Coinciding with this change of season, the retrieval of NSW DPI's network of fish aggregating devices (FADs) for winter maintenance has begun.
FADs from Port Stephens to Sydney have been removed, with retrievals of all FADs south of Sydney down to Eden being removed this week. Retrievals of the remaining North Coast FADs from Tweed Heads to Crowdy Head are planned for mid to late June.
If you intend to get your final FAD fishing fix for the season at any of the remaining locations check out the DPI webpage or download the DPI FishSmart app to confirm co-ordinates and which FADs are still on station.
The 2022-23 FAD deployments are scheduled to commence from September onwards.
