Re: Grubs caught netting in Lake tyers.

And just a few weeks later in the season they may have netted 48 big bream in that area, which would have been even worse. Why do people do this sort of thing? Do bream even fetch a decent price at the market?

Re: Melbourne Yellowtail Kingfish at Docklands!

Absolutely epic - and on light gear, too. What surprised me was the fish staying relatively under control within a radius of the pontoon - I've never had such luck even on heavier gear with the mulloway or larger snapper around there! Is this a feature of kingfish, or just luck?
