3AW FISHING SHOW
img1
img

After last week’s interview with Coalitions Peter Walsh, this Friday Daniel Andrews will be live in the studio from 7.20pm with staff members David Kramer and Adam Ring to discuss his plans for recreational fishing, and take your calls.

If you would like the chance to talk direct to Opposition Leader Daniel Andrews this Friday evening, call 3AW Fishing on 96900693 and ask him a question or tell him what you think. With the State election nearly upon us, both sides of politics are promising improvements to recreational fishing. Denis Napthine has promised to phase out commercial netting in Port Phillip Bay and the Gippsland Lakes. Daniel Andrews has yet to commit to anything! This is your chance to give direct feedback – from 7.20pm

Please note – due to 3AW cricket commentary, 3AW Fishing will only be heard on 3AW digital radio. Tune in to 3AW on your digital radio, the 3AW phone app or via the internet.
