Had a great day fishing the Murrumbidgee at Narrandera yesterday. Was busy on Wednesday so didn't have time to collect shrimps or yabbies...turned out I didn't need them, anyway. I got to the boat ramp just after sun up (a big blazing red sun) and decided to explore some virgin territory. Headed upstream as I usually do (makes the trip back to the ramp easier and quicker) and managed to weave my way through some very shallow areas to a small island located in the middle of a tight bend. This was further than I had explored before so I started there and headed further upstream, selecting "likely spots" as I took in the magnificence of the morning. The Cockatoos and Kookaburras were competing for the title of Australia's noisiest birds as I tied up to the roots of a giant redgum. I had recently made a decision to fish heavier than the 12lb line (which saw me getting busted off too regularly), so opted for 20 lb mono on 1 rod and 30 lb braid and leader on the other. There was a decent run in the water so clarity probably wasn't going to be an issue with the heavier lines. Each spot I tried over the next 7 hours had bites happening ,often on both rods at the same time. Still ended up with having to break lines, when I became irretrievably snagged by submerged trees, but the heavier lines proved no detriment to the fish biting. I ended up with 1x Silver Perch of 50 cms, 4x small Trout Cod, 3x Carp and 29 x Murray Cod to 53cms...all caught on cheese. A total of 37 fish...all returned to the river (except for the Carp). Not a bad day's "work"...don't mind saying. Big Neil.
