At Albert Park, the prized catch is a big yellow belly (Golden Perch) but you can also catch estuary perch, rainbow trout, and carp. It can be a challenging system to fish with a large volume of weed and snags in this shallow lake. Stocked trout yearlings are released into the lake most school holidays.
Fishing licence is not required for under 18 years of age however parents assisting their children may need a licence.
Catch and release is strongly recommended as water quality may be below minimum safety standards and fish are likely unfit for human consumption. Therefore, fish must be measured, if possible, and photographed with its captor for the purpose of entering the competition (and bragging rights).
Yellow Belly minimum size 30cm, bag limit 5.
Rainbow Trout no minimum size applies, bag limit 5 of which no more that 2 can exceed 35cm.
Carp are declared a noxious aquatic species and cannot returned to the water if caught.
Best baits include worms / scrub worms, maggots, live yabbies, mud eyes and power bait. Various lures can also be used.
Ben Scullin from VR fishing will be present on the day to assist with catching fish so take advantage of his expertise.
Meeting point will be at the Carousel Café from 8-9 am.
Please RSVP by the 17th May.
