Re: Hazelwood Barra update

I think it is easy to criticize the whole thing, after all hindsight is 20/20. Regardless of the motives and the current outcomes - these guys actually gave it a crack. And it was a success for a while with lots of positive feedback - had it continued along that path it would have been great. I just...

Re: Moonee Ponds Creek

Good fishy looking area for bream too.. I'd check under the rocks to see if there's any small rock crabs too, great bream bait as well. I'm pretty sure that would be classed as the intertidal zone - therefore no bait can be taken from the under the rocks. You should probably check if it's applicabl...

Re: Does anyone have any free soil that want to get rid of?

Hmmm guess it's a tad late now that you have soil in there already - but I would have suggested filling the bottom with crushed rock or scoria and only half filling with soil. It improves drainage and most veggies only have short root systems so don't need heaps of soil depth. I did it on my raised ...

Re: Spadoni Reserve, Yering

Fished it a few time earlier in the year. Some big Carp swimming in the deeper holes and plenty of small reddies right in among the snags.
There is also a couple of platypus living in that section.
