Go to www.northern news.co.nz or www.the fishingshow.co.nz for some action. Matt Watson, dubbed the extreme fisherman , is taking the Bay of Islands to the world. His fishing show, produced in the Bay of Islands, has moved to a prime time Saturday timeslot on TV3. And his footage is viewed worldwide through two Discovery Channel shows that he fronts. Matt has received international press for his marine antics, includ- ing his famous marlin hugging leap from a helicopter. But the Bay of Islands remains his base. His house and office are in Kerikeri. It s is the best place to fish, he says. Showing the Bay of Islands off as a fishing destination is undoubtedly good for tourism. We like to think we look after things up here. Matt takes an holistic approach to marine conservation. He s one of about a thousand submitters to the Fish Forever cam- paign that s calling for a 10 percent no take for a generation area. And he s one of nearly 300 people who have shared their ideas on where marine protected areas should be in the Bay of Islands. I m 95 percent in support of the campaign in principle but its suc- cess will hang on the size of the reserve and its placement. The big- ger the area you block off, the more fishing pressure will be put on another area. What we need is some small area that is easy for people to access. Locking up a large area will be counterproductive because it will prevent people from going fishing, and we need more people to be engaged with the ocean and develop a genuine appreciation for conserv- ing it. It s recreational fisherman who have been at the forefront of lobbying to protect commercially overfished species. He s aware of recent iwi com- plaints that commercial vessels fishing close to shore at Takou Bay have been hammering stocks. He says for the most part, com- mercial fishers are aware of the need to avoid spatial conflict. Unfortunately rising fuel prices are creating a scenario where com- mercial operators are coming closer to shore to cut costs. Commercial fishers can take in two days what recreational fishers may take in a couple of years. Matt s passion for fishing goes back to his youth when, he says, he could easily have become trouble- some. Instead he threw a line into the briny and his young eyes lit up. He feels strongly about introducing kids to the joy of fish- ing. There is huge value in the rec- reational catch. The value is not just in monetary terms but has an impact on social issues. There s something life-changing in catching a first kahawai. Fishing is a way of engaging kids in some- thing wholesome. The ITM Fishing Show screens on Saturdays at 7pm on TV3. Freeing up camping sites Overnight camping in campervans with toilets may be allowed at four public reserves in the Far North. The district council currently bans camping on its reserves. But a draft freedom camping policy adopted by councillors on April 14 proposes to allow people in self-contained camp- ing vehicles to camp overnight at: Derrick Landing, 1km down Waikare Rd, Kawakawa Lake Waiparere, Awa- nui Kaimaumau Recreation Reserve, Kaimaumau Unahi Reserve, north of Awanui. Only four vehicles will be allowed to park at each reserve at any one time and for no longer than 24 hours. Councillors decided to designate reserves where people in campervans could camp overnight when they adopted a reserves bylaw last December. It will seek public submissions on the draft policy and free- dom camping sites. Beware -- DNA kit a scam The Commerce Com- mission is warning peo- ple about a scam involv- ing a supposed DNA testing kit, which has arrived in mailboxes. The kit is a swab stick and a reply envelope. People are asked for a $39.99 processing fee and credit card details. The kit is from China, with a return address in the Netherlands.
