Is it possible to catch a Yellowtail Kingfish from the Yarra river?

Fantastic effort! Have you caught gummy sharks in the area as well? I once caught a 7 gill in that area.

No, I haven't caught any Gummies from the Yarra, but several locals who fish the area regularly & that I know personally, tell me they can & have been caught during the Night.

That is awesome mate.
Years ago I was fishing on the small pontoon under the Westgate for mullet and also landed a small kingie there. Mine was much smaller than that one :P
