Targeting Murray cod in their home waters in the Murray river is without a doubt one of my favourites types of fishing. I think there are few fish that provide such a challenge with many angler devoting their whole lives to catching them. I’ll run you through some of the tips and tactics that I find successful while fishing the river.
It’s been interesting watching the take up in fishing for bigger Cod in southern Impoundments over winter. Slowly but surely the word has leaked out in regard to the opportunity’s that present in places other than Copeton Dam in northern NSW. Not so long ago during the depths of winter on dams such as Wyangala, Burrenjuck, and Blowering you could have set off an artillery 21-gun salute and not a soul would have heard it…
Lake Eildon is one of the diverse waterways not just in Victoria but also in Australia. How many places can you think of where you can go fishing for a day and be in the mix to catch trophy Golden Perch, Trout, Murray Cod and Red Fin? The opportunities are endless but are they by no means easy, I have spent many trips exploring Eildon and when you think you have it figured out the lake will throw you a curve ball, you can go from having a big day out one day to drawing a blank the next doing exactly the same thing.
After dark is a new concept we've been refining for quite some time now, its a significantly reduced LED light specifically for night time fishing. We've found at night time our standard LED can be too bright, when activated at night it creates a huge glow around the tail. The After Dark has a reduced LED, and we've painted over the tail to block out the large glow from the LED at night.
