The long weekend saw heaps of campers/anglers out on our rivers and most people caught something,everyone I had in my shop were pretty happy.

With only 20 days to go before the cod opening people are already starting to ask where is the best place to go-at the moment it appears from recent reports of cod getting caught ranging from 30cm to up to a metre, that the river here at swan hill will fish just as well as last season,if not better.

And dont forget the lakes I was shown a video of a cod that would have been over a metre(the guy did'nt measure it) caught in Lake Charm on wednesday on a trolled small lure he was using chasing redfin and yellas-later on in the day he caught a 75cm from the bank at the caravan park=so it just shows that there are big cod in charm as kangaroo lake.

- For people travelling to the Pooncarrie area the yellas are still on the bite mainly on bait.

- The river at Wemen is producing good numbers of yellas on small yabbies and worms.
- Michael McMahon sent me a photo of a 6.5kg yella he caught on a scrubworm upstream from swan hill and Glen Boag caught a 4.1lb on shrimp and worms.
- A couple of mates fished at Brooks Lane last sunday for a couple of hours and landed 5 cod and 3 yellas on bait.
- The Murrabit area is also producing some good size yellas on most baits.

- Rick Skinner and a few mates put their boats in at Kyalite and boated to Tooleybuc last weekend and finished up with 11 keeper yellas with the biggest at 52cm,2 cod a 52cm in thye murray and a 48cm in the wakool-most fish were caught on scrubworms.
- Matt Rodoni and his son Oliver camped on the reserve at the weekend and caught plenty of yellas,Matt said he caught 6 yellas off the same snag casting a blacl/yellow Bassman spinnerbait,he said small yabbies worked well.

- The creek has been producing some good size yellas up to 44cm on scrubworms if you know where the holes are.

- Clive from the caravan park said that a few redfin have been caught in the lake and good numbers of yellas have been caught both in the lake and at the regulator on shrimp and worms and vibes.

- Jeff Liddicoat sent me a photo of her son Jett's silver perch he caught from the bank,he finished up with two and was pretty happy with himself-not knowing that you could take them from the lake,they put them back.

- As I said in the intro a couple of cod were caught on wednesday and there were plenty of redfin and good size yellas caught over the weekend on small yabbies,shrimp and minnows.

## For anybody interested the Lake Boga Sports Fishing Club is holding a fishing comp tomorrow and sunday,with the aim of collecting data of fish stock especially around the "fish motels".Hopefully it will result in the lake being re-stocked with more cod and yellas and in installation of more "motels.There will be heaps of prizes-BYO food and drinks.
