Freshwater Cobbler Size/Bag Limit

Hey everyone. I was just wondering if anyone knew what the size and bag limit was for freshwater cobbler in the south west. I seen some really big ones marroning in the collie river and i just thought that if i went fishing for them next time and caught one i would need to know size and bag limits.

its like 40 - 45cm and bag limit of 4 in the south coast region? Not sure if Collie is in the south coast region and if they make a distinction bewteen freshwater and saltwater cobbler....

Yea coz we got a fisheries measure for 2010 and it say that cobbler are 43cm's but i think that might be salt water cobbler because the freshatwater ones we get here only get to something like 2 kilos so i wasnt sure.
