Re: 3AW Rumour File

It's not just out in the bay - plenty of freshwater locations get "terra-formed" by fishos. I might know of a few spots along the Yarra where "work" has been done. In most cases i may have heard about, it does often have a positive result. That said - I would not want to see the ...

Re: Carp herpes virus - alarm bells ringing

It is a real catch 22 - pretty well everyone wants carp gone, or at least vastly reduced, but every option put forward seems to have risk attached.

I have tried there in the past as well. Seen bream and carp caught. There are many bridges nearby Her...

tim neville arboretum?

Has anyone tried fishing at TNA (tim neville arboretum) in Boronia since the council cleaned out the ponds? At the time the council reported all fish were removed and there was no plans to replace them. Bets were that carp would miraculously find there way back in. Just wondering if anyone has tried...

Re: Tough going on the Yarra at present

Thanks Truedogz - got some extra time off over ANZAC day, will have to have another look then.
It has been frustrating as for the last few months I have managed at least one fish landed per trip.....to suddenly go to nothing happening at all over three trips has had me scratching my head
