Man, that is quite a list, we need to talk about getting some data on some of these dams for the new "where to fish" section of the new BFSA site. I'm dead serious here, we must talk. One dam that I think should be added to the Zim list is Darwendale, a potential world trecord venue, biggest fish out of that dam is 18lbs, not far behind the world record largie.
