River Pinkies?

 Few weeks ago I caught this Lil baby pinkie in freshwater bay which surprised me, does anyone have any stories of pinkies being caught in the river? Or do the babies just swim upstream and leave the big ones?

I have caught a few juvenile ones downstream and have seen reports of people picking bigger models up in the deeper spots around the river.  Nothing legal though.

 Bulk littles one everywhere. Def some sized models but doubt you will catch them they are well fed pets!

 Yep heaps of pinks in the river. Biggest I've caught was 28cm but I've seen one pulled that was agonisingly close to legal at 48cm.

 have caught up to 38 cm closer to freo. Hang in schools with bream and such


Fishing and catching are two different things. But i want to learn how to catch.
