Re: Yarra status

Hi Mate not sure how the old girl is running today but I hit Longridge Park last weekend and couldn't manage a bite except for freshwater shrimp stealing the bait. Tuesday night I tried Winton's Reserve in Wonga Park - one big Mac Perch landed but not another bite that night. I suspect the rain over...

Side thought - does anyone know the actual reason for the no boating part of the lake?

Re: hazelwood18th jan

Nice report Nude Up - shame there were no barra for you. But hey how many times have we all been out and not managed a fish.....i just put in three trips in a row on the Yarra and came back empty handed.

Jells Park?

Hi All - I don't normally ask this but has anyone had any recent luck at Jell's Park?
I have to be down there soon for something else and thought about taking the rod - just try to assertion if it is worth the effort or not.
Thanks
