Sounds like a plan Steve however like fishnut suggested I think that’s the closest one and I have been down that stretch before just not all the way, but launched at St Kilda and drove all the way around. Long stretch at low speed.

Keep at it mate, they're still there. Where were you trying?
You would have seen me there on my Yak.

Yes I think I might have seen you :) saw a few yaks. Did you catch anything last Saturday?
We had a good day there, caught plenty of Pinks. If you saw the Yaks (only 2), that's where the fish were. ;-) There were a few landbased guys there catching some good fish.

Yes, I think I saw you guys :) sounds exciting!! Should go there this weekend to try again!!

Lil update on Docklands.

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
