Murray Cod: A 104 cm fish caught by Jarryd Sirca took out fish of the week. Jarryd landed the big fish on Saturday night while trolling an AC Invader in the Main Basin. Steve from Canberra trolled up an 80 cm fish on a large Oar-gee. Owen from Canberra also recorded a 76 & a 73 cm fish on a purple spinner bait. Good to see some bigger fish starting to take lures as winter approaches. There is a couple of additional rock formations appearing in the main Basin. And some shallow areas around the island. Great structure for fishing but be careful at night.

Yellow Belly: The 2nd round of the Australian Yellow Belly Championships were held at Burrinjuck during the weekend.(catch & Release) 44 teams took part. A bag of 8 fish was needed on Saturday over 8 hours with upgrades permitted. Sunday required 4 fish per team over a 4 hour period. Ninteen teams caught there bag on Saturday. The majority of teams chose to target fish on trees in 10 to 20 metres of water. Most fisherman opted to use a 1/4 oz jighead and paddle tail plastics slowly rolling vertically through the timber. The competition was super close throughout the weekend with only 100mm between the top 4 teams after Saturdays session, 40mm separated 1st and second place.
First place went to Team Gotcha – Michael Collison and Aaron Graham with 12/12 for 5796mm
Second place Loomzys Fish n Fix – Jamie Loomes and Paul Browne with 12/12 for 5767mm
Third place went to Dynamite – Toby Anderson and John Anderson with 12/12 for 5572mm
350 yellow belly were measured over the weekend with an average length of 426 mm.
Most teams headed up the Bidgee River beyond Scrubby. However 3rd & 4 th place picked up there fish closer to home around the Main Basin. Next round will be at Keepit on the 28th May.

Redfin: Still plenty of schools about but don’t seem to be chasing lures so much.

Park News: The park in conjunction with our local bush fire brigades will be conducting some hazard reduction burns to finalize our bush fire preparation works over the coming weeks.
