Report 17/2/17

Post by Nicole Penfold » Fri Feb 17, 2017 3:35 pm

Last week's stinking hot weather and then a cold change and a dropping barometer turned the fish and anglers off.Weather conditions for this weekend are going to be far more favourable.


- The Wemen area is producing legal yellas on bait fishing in the shallower water with bait.
- Had a report yesterday of a couple of cod caught in the Kenley area.
- Had a report of a cod being caught at Boundary Bend on a trolled lure.
- The Nyah Fishing comp was held last weekend with 70 boats competing withSnail Henson wonning the comp for the second year in a row with 2 cod over 60cm caught on bardi grubs.
- A regular customer camped out on Penta Island last weekend and fished back up river towards Murrabit on the saturday and finished up with a 67cm cod caught on a wood grub,2 smaller cod around 45cm and a 40cm silver.On the sunday he fished closer to Caeli Lane and finished up with a 54-40-20cm cod and another 40cm silver..
- The Murrabit area produced a few legal cod on yabbies,grubs and scrubworms.


- The pool water between Maude and Hay is still producing plenty of cod ranging from 40 to 90+cm on trolled purple,blue & green holographic Koolabungs.


- The southern end of the lake is producing yellas and redfin on baits and small lures and bobbers.


- The redfin slowed down with the hot weather last week but a few bigger fish are being picked up on trolled lures and the best baits are minows,small yabbies and scrubbies.


- The northern end of the lake is still producing yellas and redfin fishing early in the morning on baits and I would be flicking vibes at the outlet.


- The channel system between Kangaroo Lake and Lake Boga continues to produce very big yellas,with Taylor Rovere smashing them over the past months-one he got last weekend was 61cm(this weeks photo).All his fish have been caught on dark coloured bibless vibes.

## The annual Swan Hill Fishing Comp is on the 3rd & 4th March at the Pental Island Caravan Park.There have been some nice cod and yellas caught in that area over the past couple of months and the organisers put on a great weekend.

### I managed to get some bardi grubs in last weekend BUT they wont last long if anyone is looking for some!
