    Tough Day at the Flathead Grounds

    Good onya for taking them out and getting on the fish (eventually). You sometimes never know what that bit of extra perseverance will produce. Good job. bn

    Sydney Kings on Thursday

    Sounds like it was a worthwhile trip. Getting among the fish is great but those damn seals are persistent. bn

    Lake Wyangan

    If ur land based worms are best. Can catch anything on them if the fish are biting. Good luck. bn

    Lake Wyangan

    Yep I've fished there many times. Holds some Yellas and Cod as well as Carp. Trolling lures on the bottom, in the deeper parts is a good option if ur in a boat. It bank fishing you will need more than a fair share of good luck to catch anything other than Carp.. It's probably quite shallow at present so don't go rushing around in a boat. There has been algae in it this past summer so I wouldn't eat anything you do catch. Good luck, bn

    Copeton messing with the head

    Hey Dave and Amy. I feel your pain and also understand the feeling of ecstasy you have from landing that one fish. There are lots of cliches which can be applied to Cod fishing but surely the most significant is "JUST ONE MORE CAST". You just never know what can happen when the lure hits the zone and you apply your favourite retrieve to the lure. Great read, great photos, great result. Hoodoo broken ...Job well done! On the other side of the coin. I went out to the river at first light yesterday and the very low water was as clear as bottled water. No interest and I lost 2 surface lures, casting from the bank into the partly submerged timbers. This Cod season is definitely the worst fishing in over 20 years fishing the Murrumbidgee. Cheers, bn

    Reds again

    Seems like a while between posts from you Rick but when the report is so impressive, it's definitely worth the wait. Looks like the big reds decided to come to play with you mate. Great result, must be the best fishing region on the east coast at present. Great pics too, bn

    A day to remember

    Wow Trav what a fantastic result. We know how difficult it can be getting one Cod but to have such a fantastic day, as you described, is nothing short of amazing. You certainly put the rest of us to shame with your knowledge and determination. Not doing much fishing down here so keep the reports coming, they're great reading. Cheers, bn

    Port Stephens- The longtail are on!!!

    Wow what a buzz that would be, catching one of those. Cheers, bn

    Aussie bass at ourimbah creek

    Persisting and getting one fish is often as much reward as one can expect. Sometimes fish don't want to play the game and it can be very hard to etch out a result. Keep at it Toby, it's great fun fishing. Cheers, bn
