Youve found a gold mine! Check out how much pet shops pay for these fish.( $$$$$)+ All you have to do is make sure you handle them with wet hands when you land them, unhook gently then keep them in your pond until they recover. Biggest threat will be fungal infection. By memory sulphate of potash clears it up!

Nah in Perth

Hi Redfin 4 Life.

Nah got these ferals in Perth. Yeah i know they get mega feral goldfish in the vasse right at the bridge in town. Used to chase them when i was growing up in Busso, never seen any carp/koi though.

Another place i have caught mega goldfish and carp has been at Margret River, again right near the bridge before town.

Heaps of fun to chew some time away when you are bored and weather is to bad for the ocean.

Used to live nearly opposite the gate when that was the only street and all bush from the corner right through to the river.Was all cow paddocks over the back of the school where Big W is now and right to the estuary at the back of the power station,No inner harbour then, though I worked on the dredging of it years later.

I was 13 at the time,only 6 houses in Rodstead st.

Took nealy 40 years to see the light and get out of the place and now only go back for a visit when I cannot get out of it.

The main thing wrong with Bunbury is that there isn't enough dirt to fill the hole in!
