I agree with Chris. THe other thing I have found is that they bite better where there are bends in the river. I guess more bait pools in these areas.

Better off with a boom-stick tbh. 12 gauge should do. I always sight fish and never catch them in the Yarra, even fresh worms aren't working. Maybe try some plastic and other rubbish as bait?

Thanks for the great tips guys. I know that early and late are good, but is it worthwhile fishing thru the middle of the day? Probably cloudy would be better than our present clear hot days.
If I go home she who must be obeyed finds work for me :lolf: :set1_fishing:

Where were you? Keep trying other spots until you find some action. Got no action on corn but caught a fair bit on worms last Tuesday night.

Are you after anything in particular? Know a couple of good spots that are fishing well.

Just out for a fish, anything on the line would be good. Taking one of my daughters tonight, and they lose interest fast if nothing is on the bite.

Try the back of the veneto club in bulleen with worms. Caught a tonne of eels, carp and maccas as well. Good luck.
