Re: A few plate size sand crabs.

Just checked, no more size limit on the red shore crabs. I might have been thinking about NSW... Grab a fishing guide from a tackle shop (it's free) or download the app from VFA

Re: What is this ?

Usually just call them sea perch but their real name is barber perch. They turn fluoro blue when they mature and change to males. Really good eating especially the bigger ones (30cm ish). Butterfly perch are different

Re: Help with Catching Redin in Urban Lakes

Theres reddies in ringwood lake but average size is around 5-10cm. Jells park has some, but Rowville is your best bet nearby. Lilydale is good too but further away

Re: Tinnie vs kayak upgrade

Re: Lowrance Hook 2 4 X Sonar Troubles

Glad it worked :thumbsup:
