Re: quick Yarra session this evening

I've actually found the mid section of the Yarra (Yarra Glen to Templestowe) to be fishing much better this year than the past couple. I think all that winter water that flowed through gave it a good clean out.

Nice little session on the Yarra this evening - two Redfin, both about 25cm. Then followed up by a Mac Perch, a carp and two little eels.
Can't complain about the variety

Re: Kmart????

Chirnside Park Kmart was looking fairly sparse when I was there a couple of weeks back, and a friend said Eastland Kmart was not much better.

Re: Deep hooking bream - How to avoid?

Re: Deep hooking bream - How to avoid?

I find the hook up rate is better and the releases are generally much easier. You still get the occasional one that sucks the hook right down but they are few. I normally let bream hook themselves, however if I do strike it is more a slow lift not a hard fast jerk. Once I feel the weight come on - j...

Yarra through warburton

Has anyone got any tips to share for fishing the Yarra through Warburton? Bait fishing more so than lures.
Looking for some new Yarra waters that I have not fished as yet and through Warburton is one place I have passed many time but never tried.
