    Awesome connor, sounds like a good day out.

    Has or is the lake going to be stocked? It was meant to get trout last year which didn't happen. The redfin haven't been biting there for quite a while now.

    I'm aware of the Yellow belly ...

    See:

    :)

    Agreed on the reddies, but unless the trout have been put in very recently, I'm very sceptical. :)

    Needless to say, on the day I would be more than happy to come down and help!

    From 2007:
    Spavin Lake (Sunbury)2nd and 3rd term school holidays
    That is incorrect - it didn't happen in my opinion. DPI could neither confirm or deny this when I tried contacting them on three occasions.

    just throw a few garden worms on a hook and you will have a fair chance of catching something. not sure if your into lure fishing but ifso there is a heap of different ones you could try from celtas through to rapala or even the old tassie devil.
