First yellow belly

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone

Just a quick report

Yesterday (Saturday 19/12/15) I went for a fresh water fish for natives in hope to get my first yellow belly and cod on lure (caught cod on bait before). Well it was a long day until I finally got a hit an a great fight out of the solid yellow belly

For my first it was a stonker at just under 50cm and super fat. He was happily released

Then it was quickly followed by another smaller model which was quite skinny but awesome colours

It was then time for a cod, so put on the spinner bait and about 1 hour later flicking on finally get hit and landed a nice cod, my first on a lure!

That was about it for the afternoon

Gear of choice was was a Shimano Stradic FK 3000 with Shimano zodias 5-10lb and 14lb leader

Thanks for reading

Cheers Gianni

Very nice mate. Looks like you were land based which would make it all the more rewarding. Great photo of the cod, shows some beautiful colours
