I'm starting to sound like a broken record-another quite week on the fishing front-theres plenty of fish out there to be caught-just need anglers on the water.With spring just around the corner and the last round of the footy home and away matches next weekend,reports will start to flow in..

- A couple of mates put in at the Murrabit boat ramp during the week and landed a couple of legal cod one a grub and the other on a large yabby.
- A few cod have been landed around Swan Hill mainly on bait along with a few yellas caught on shrimp and scrubworms.
- A couple of good size yellas were landed near Runciman Rd last weekend using scrubworms.
- With fresh flows coming out of the Bidgee into the Murray at the junction,fishing downstream of the junction should start to pick up in the coming weeks.

- The rise has hit Maude with the river rising about 3-4 foot during the week,so once it settles,the fishing should be good.

- A few yellas have been picked up along the river with a bit of persistance using small yabbies and shrimp(fresh & frozen).

- My nephew stopped off at the channel that runs under the highway near little lake charm on thursday and with one bite landed a good size yella on worms,and it finished up in my fridge-thanks Luke.

*** LATE MAIL ***
I had a couple of mates call into the shop just on closing time this afternoon after spending a week camped at Lock 7 and they said they were pretty happy with their weeks fishing.They finished up with 8 cod ranging from 60cm to 91cm and 30 whopping yellas,all the fish were caught on lures with the most effective being the 120mm AC Invader "Magic Knight"-the Pink/White and the Frog pattern.
They said it was a positive sign for that area taking into account last years "natural event" and with the number of cod that were caught at Lock 9 on the June long weekend by the "Cod Save the Queen" members,this might be a sign of a small light at the end of a big tunnel- but I'm praying that light will start to get bigger-only time will tell!

# Dont forget there is 19 days left to pick up a bargain with between 20 to 30% OFF most lures. The 120mm jointed Koolabung Cod Crackers are back in stock,but they wont last long and I wont have any more in stock until December.

Until next week JC
