Murray Cod
We had fantastic weather on Saturday but oh dear the wind on Sunday saw most fishermen pack up and head home early. We had a few fishing clubs in over the weekend with some of these arriving on Thursday so they had a couple of good days on the water. A lot of these guys were trolling hard bodies & spinner baits resulting in some good reports. There were more Cod caught this weekend than we have seen for the last couple of months the biggest reported fish was 78cm from the top of Wade Island taken on a black & white spinner bait. Ian from Wagga Boat Club Anglers managed 4 fish from 50 – 62 cm trolling a purple Predatek around Scrubby, Sam from Penrith caught 7 cod for the weekend. Most fishermen have been targeting the main basin and Bidgee River Arm up to Scrubby. The Goodradigbee River usually produces big cod and in good numbers but has been very quiet so far this year, Will be worth a look in the next few weeks.

Yellow Belly
The odd fish being caught on the troll but it remains tough going. The yellows have stayed consistent on the trees in the deeper water for several weeks now although the fish holding trees are getting harder to find. We had Roman Dicovski from Fish Strike Productions doing some filming for their next DVD over the last 2 weekends. Roman was targeting these same trees with soft plastic grubs and managed more than 20 fish each day. Steve Starling also paid us a visit for a few days but I missed having a chat when he left. Kyle from Tumut picked up 13 yellows fishing with small yabbies in the evening near the main boat ramp. Shrimp remain the best bait option for the trees and there are plenty of big shrimp being caught. A reminder that your shrimp trap must have a tag attached with the letters ST (shrimp trap) and the name & address of the fishermen. 1 Trap per person only. This tag can be located on the trap below the water. The trap will be confiscated if it is checked by the Fishing Inspector and is found without a tag.

Are mainly being caught trolling with no big numbers being reported. The fish being caught are a good size with plenty above 30 cm.

No reports
