The fishing for Murray cod and yellowbelly has been good in most of the northern waterways even with the increase in boat traffic. Places like Lake Eildon, Nagambie and Mulwala have been fishing well and there have even been some nice fish coming from places like the Yarra as well. Customer Steve's last trip up to Eildon yielded him a cracker from the cover of darkness fishing the sloping timber running into a small inlet.
Customer Izzy has caught some nice cod recently, with most of them coming on the chew during the night while fishing the Goulburn. Fish to 62cm have found their way to the banks on a variety of baits and the odd one on spinnerbaits early morning and late afternoon.
Customer Danny got a rather large suprize when he hooked a 60cm cod fishing a new ultralight outfit in the Werribee River recently. Danny was fishing a small bream sized hardbody lure on a light 1-3kg spin out fit when the cod came along. After a quick tussle around some snags and a pic the cod was back on it's way.
Customer Bryce came into the store to gear himself up for Murray cod fishing from his kayak and after some gear selection and advice he set off for his first trip. Bryce's starting session on the cod saw him land a lovely 76cm fish on one of the suggested and rigged lures from the store. Great way to start off your cod fishing!
