Stokes hill LB platform shut down

Post by Flickin4em » Tue Jul 16, 2019 9:49 pm

Went past stokes hill LB platform tonight. It was a pretty big dissapointment to find it shut down and fenced off.

Unsure of when it'll reopen if anyone knows please keep us updated on it.

Talked to Ronald at fishing and outdoor world and he said it'd be shut for the entire school holidays

It’s been closed off for about 3 weeks now that I know of. Something to do with the structure/integrity (rust) i think i saw on a sign.
Not a good look for the visitors either this time of year....

Hope they fix it!

Anyone caught good fish off there? I lost a stonker off there years ago. Also caught a big mantis prawn on the other side, on a bait.

Mostly went down there just to net herring and squid.

Seems that the landbased platform at stokes hill is not a priority for our massive amounts of coin to be spent on improving fishing facilities around Darwin... :?

STILL closed on the 17.1.20 :banghead:

About a year after fencing it off the council looks like it finally has someone fixing it. :clap:
