Fished docklands last night. Arrived at 7pm and left at midnight. High tides was at 11:15pm and unfortunately only caught one fish. (30cm Pinkie at 9:30pm) Not much happening atm. Pretty overcast night tho so that could of been a major factor.

1st rod: 8lb braid to 10lb mono lead with motor oil or Shimmer white curly soft plastic lure.
2nd rod: 10lb mono to snapper rig with bait (Chicken & Squid) <- Setup that caught the fish

Still got one. Better than a donut mate :)

I used to fish there a lot but not much anymore.
Landed some nice fish there though including pinkies, bream, tailors, mulloway, salmons, trevallys. Quite a variety down there :thumbsup: and been busted off by some monsters as well :)

Aren't the bream at Docklands quite finicky? I've hook a decent size (I'm guessing about 35cm) but it broke off as soon as it hit the surface D:. I haven't had any luck there since then any advice on how to fish that area? I've been there a few times but can't figure it out. Advice would be greatly appreciated. It was on a squidgie but I'm keen to try bait as well.

There’s a great write up about the dock lands I think it was written by a guy on here called sloth!
Have a look around mate. Well worth reading :P
