Murray Cod: Mathew Brett from Leeton wins angler of the week this week. Mathew put in a couple of long nights with his brother (10 hrs) but was well rewarded with 3 fish over the metre in 2 nights. Many of us have been in the boat watching the other guy land all the fish. Brett landed a 101 cm, 102cm & a 122 cm. The big fish was landed around 5.30am. All fish were caught in the Main Basin. The guys opted to sleep and watch cricket during the scorching hot weekend and then venture out just before dark. I have also heard of a couple of other big fish exceeding the 1 metre on Cod opening week. Terry I believe also did well from his kayak over the weekend landing 11 Cod. Don’t know how big though. Brett landed all 3 fish on a 120mm Frog Pattern AC Invader. The full moon is on Christmas night so this coming week is the time to have a crack at a big one.

Yellow Belly: Are starting to show up in bigger numbers in the fish bins. Warren & Jess landed 7 good fish on Wednesday, Usually lures but haven’t spoke to the guys as yet. The yellows have been hanging around trees in the deeper water. Bait such as yabbies or shrimp or plastics dropped into the timber is the best bet. Trolling as generally been slower going.

Redfin: Reports are of schools of smaller fish about, Small plastics or blades on light gear is the go if you happen upon a school. Worms are also good but take longer to reload each time.

Carp: Were smashing everything earlier in the month. The reports have quietened down now. Back to the usual bait or fly methods. The trial period for Bow hunting for carp has commenced. This restricted to the yass river Arm. There are a few hoops to jump through before you are able to bow fish. Visit the DPI Web site for the information.

Park News: No entertainment this year for New Year’s Eve. We do have Kerri O’keefe & Adam & Ash appearing from 6pm on the 29th January. Kerri will also be back at the end of the month. Santa will also be visiting on Christmas Eve.
I hope everybody has a Merry Christmas and drive safely.
