15 stonkers were released into each of the 2 lakes near home yesterday. With all the fisho's we saw at 1 of the lakes last night I hope 1 or 2 are left for me to C&R. Stonker fun comes to Metro Melbourne They’re back – and this time, the stonker rainbows have come to Melbourne! That’s right, 18 family fishing lakes in metropolitan Melbourne are being stocked with 500 ‘stonker’ rainbow trout weighing up to 7kg. This will give those families within 5km of these lakes a chance to have some fun. Starting with Albert Park and Caulfield Racecourse on Monday, all 18 lakes will be stocked by Wednesday 14 October. Remember, if you choose to scout these waters for stonkers, you must be within 5km of your home or permitted work, with up to five people from a maximum of two households and for up to two hours per day, split into a maximum of two sessions. Keep a 1.5m distance from others, wear a fitted face mask at all times and don’t share any equipment. For more information on restrictions in place, click here.
