Murray Cod
I had a late report this weekend from Ben Clark. He managed to catch a 108 cm fish on a spinnerbait towards the Dam wall back on the 16th. The weekend weather was great and the water levels were rising but fishing was tough for most with very few reports. Some of the yellow belly competitors managed some good fish while fishing soft plastics around the base of trees.

The Yellowbelly Champs were held at the park over the weekend. The comp is run over 3 x 5 hour sessions with the best 5 fish from each session being counted. Not all fish caught are included in the count. A total of 263 fish were measured by the marshals (all fish have to be released and swim away for the fish to count). 41 teams/boats participated. The average length of fish was 429 mm with the biggest yellow being 570 mm caught by Daniel Finn.

Most of the teams concentrated on trees in deeper water, 8 metres or more using 3 inch Berkley Gulp grubs or similar in various colours with a ¼ ounce jig head. The plastics were fished vertically up and down the trees using a slow retrieve. The bigger fish tended to hold deeper. Most anglers used 10lb braid and leader. Team Magnum found a tree in the Bidgee that they stayed on for 3 sessions and managed to get their bag each time with upgrades. The other winners found their fish schooling up on trees in the main basin. Loomzy’s Fish N Fix managed 30 fish off one tree in one session. The boys have now won the last 5 events and last year’s Grand Final which netted them a cool $10000. There is $2000 on offer for each of the rounds + some sponsor give a ways.
