    I grew up on a farm just a few miles from Darwin. I still fish there quite a bit and have been doing pretty good. If your fishing by boat and are putting in by the ferry head south down the river, the fishing is a bit better.

    I still haven't fished a river. Someday, with luck, I'll get my shot and pull in a big flat like that! Way to go bro!
