That's cool. I'm just a country boy, are you allowed fish from a boat around those parts of Melbourne?

Absolutely epic - and on light gear, too. What surprised me was the fish staying relatively under control within a radius of the pontoon - I've never had such luck even on heavier gear with the mulloway or larger snapper around there! Is this a feature of kingfish, or just luck?

Gee jasew3 .. such a party pooper you are!! why the assumption that people fishes without licences????

They have managed to share their catch to prove that there's yellowtail kingfish/bream in the dockland so we all know it is there to chase them.

Chillax and stop making general assumptions .. hope you have the fact before casting any judgement


Now i need to get back to the Ohh .. We're From Tigerland threads to cheer my day up!!

Haha good effort. I only live about 500 mts from there, still never fished there though, just doesnt look too enticing.
