Let me know when you're planning on going, I live 5 min away from the uni and I know a lot of the guards through work.


Yeah I live close by also I might head down tonight maybe I might hit this spot on the yarra I've been hitting n wet some cheese n try for cod throwing both up in the air atm
If I'm not fishing, I'd rather be fishing!

At the lake across kingsbury drive (sports field lake), Google Map -37.726697, 145.040646

I've seen plenty of fishermen over the years as I go for bike ride down the walk/bike trail. Seen them catch Redfin & Carp, quite big ones too.

If they're connected via storm drains or creeks, then they get introduced through them.
