My mate and I had a great session at Brookside last week, the owner did say the fish woke up in the afternoon and they certainly did. We'll definitely be heading back there soon.

Shocking ! Do not waste your money or time on fishing the Linear lake ! Overrun with weed to the point where Only 2 swims re fishable. Takes up to 10 anglers at a time so 8 of the 10 will simply not be able to fish !! The owner is fully aware of the state of the lake and that people are paying for the pleasure of not being able to find a place to fish !! DO NOT TOUCH THE PLACE WITH A BARGE POLE !!!
