Murray Cod
Another 1 metre cod was caught on the troll using hard body lures with spinning blades clipped on the front. The big fish was caught in the Main basin during an evening troll by the Harris clan from Numurkah in Victoria. They also picked up 5 fish between 60 & 73 cm and 4 smaller fish. There were not too many other reported captures. The weekend was again very hot with most fishermen opting not to fish in the middle of the day. Robert Harris is the manufacturer of the Harro’s Clip and Catch which consists of a set of spinner blades which can be added to the front of any lure. They are sold here at the Burrinjuck Store and now in Tackle World at Wagga.

Yellow Belly
The Harris clan managed 8 yellows on the troll. The bait fishermen using shrimp and targeting the trees, appearing as the water levels drops, in the deeper water on the edge of the Murrumbidgee River are faring the best. 20 fish in 3 hours was a report from one Cootamundra fisherman and they landed more than 10 each day they were here, some of the fish were up to 60 cm. Casting or trolling lures into the same timber is also worth a go. The fish are holding in between 3 & 8 metres of water. A very nice 62cm fish was also landed by Will Barrett at Carrols Creek while casting a Jackall.

Redfin, Trout, Silver Perch
No reports this week.

A 77cm fish was removed by Cameron near the main boat ramp using a worm as bait. There were quite a few carp fishermen here on the weekend doing it tough in the midday sun. These guys catch the carp to eat and make carp soup from the heads & tails, mince a lot of the fish for fish cakes, and deep fry the meat from the flanks of the fish. (Not my cup of tea!)
