  1. HI! I'm am a boy in grade six, living in Brisbane, Queensland Australia. Even if I live in a different state, I always learn something in your videos. It's always good to see people catching some outstanding fish! By the way, the drone shots are epic in this video. Always keen to learn in the videos so please keep posting!

  2. Thanks for posting that little adventure. I have fished that spot up in the warmies channel many times. There are some absolutely stonking bream in there some days. Been smoked by them enough times. I wonder if the lockdowns will help with making a small difference to fish stocks, with a few less being caught and taken ….

  3. Mate, if you are game enough to watch your rod possibly get taken into the water by fresh water fish, go just a little downstream from the papermil/factory up ivanHoe ish way. There are some huge ones there that have no mercy when you are lucky enough to hook one up.

    Apart from carp, there are redfin, eels and idk what all not, lost two rods there which were in rod holders (back in the day). Don't see why anything would have changed over the years. 😉
