Castnet use in Freshwater is prohibited

While fishing in the freshwater yesterday I observed a group of people in a small tinnie throwing a castnet to catch live bait. I have seen this many times around the weirs in town too. I'm not sure if they were blatantly ignoring the regulation, or were simply unaware. So I thought I would put up a quick note to those that do not know, but according the DPI&F Recreational Fishing Guide the use of castnets in freshwater is prohibited. Please always observe your local fishing regulations.
