Lake Alexander ? :? Unlikely that you're allowed to fish in there at all cuddles ?

Try out at the sandbar towards the mouth of buffalo ck or even the beach near the start of East point well before peewees near the lights along the bike path at night this should fill your bucket with 8 or so in no time with a few decent throws mate, bulk sardines can be jigged at stokes hill at night too on sabiki rigs earlier in the year .... but make sure you have a good aerator to keep them alive on their drive to far better areas to send them out for a bit of a swim for a million dollar barra. :fishing:

Also I'd suggest that you don't waste them all on solid snags :evil: , huge stinkin c#tties :evil: , big sharks :evil: and just undersized barra :| or tiny rock cod :bonk: like when I've tried them out myself a few times over the years around the usual city dangler prime areas.

Rapid Creek sometimes produces well. Park near the footbridge and walk up the path or drive if the council leave the bollards out. There's a few spots you can climb down to the water and have a flick for Barra while your there.
