Hey Raiders, Heading up to Broken Hill Next week and driving back down past Mildura. Was thinking I could have a bit of a flick along the way. Just wondering what kind of lures and sized rods and reels would be best for these areas. Trying to target Murray cod. Thanks
madfishohamish posted a topic in Fishing ChatHey raiders I'm heading down to Copeton Dam in about a month and I am looking to get a new baitcaster setup for the cod and I was wondering what size rod I should get and how much drag the reel needs
Hi All, Flew down to Melbourne from Sydney on Friday to meet up with my mate, fellow Raider CaptLukey, and we headed up to Yarrawonga with his boat in tow. The plan was to take a guided charter (just the two of us) on the Saturday and then try to replicate the experience ourselves on the Sunday before heading home. We were picked up before first light on Saturday by the guide and headed out to the river to throw some surface lures around. Using his Minn Kota we were able to pepper the snags along the bank. It was my first time fishing like this and, in the dark, it was tricky to get the casting right. However, we persevered and slowly got better at landing those massive surface lures in the right places. After only about an hour I cast out and got a hit. Didn't feel big but the rod started to load up. As I began the retrieve the rod really loaded up and I knew I was on to a good fish. After a fairly short fight a massive beast came to the surface. It was in the net then the boat pretty quickly. We put it on the brag mat and it measured 106cm! I was stoked and we were beside ourselves. A fantastic start to the day and hard to top! We continued to fish but only landed one more fish on spinners of around 55cm. A great day out and a fish of a lifetime for me!
