When we joined our fresh water fishing club last year, I stressed to Cindy that she must not catch a cod before I do. Never trust women Cheesy Cheesy

A couple of weeks ago we fished a few dams in the Adelaide Hills. First dam, the wife decides to beat our Redfin King Champ (club president) at his own game. Not a whopper, but good enough to take the honours on the day.

...

next, was a dam we haven't fished before. Was told that we could expect callop (yellow-belly) or catfish. Cindy baited up with Bardi Grubs and cast in. I was walking back to grab our chairs, when she yelled out to get back quickly.

was over the moon to see the magic of a murray cod coming closer to the bank.

yelled out to our mate to grab the net and he was just as excited to be involved in it's capture. all of our native fish must be handled carefully and returned to the water.

...

...

...

...

Not a monster, but for a first Cod pretty good at 64cm / 3.8kg.

...

...

I might have to sneak up to our premier cod dam in the southern hills one day without you-know-who Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Grin

Rick,
Caught a few of these wonderful fish over the years, (Murray cod  the best I have caught  is 12kg but have been in a camp that landed a 26kg fish) looks like a nice spot to prop for a few days, have caught a few red fin, I find them rather dry but a lot of fun to catch.  I have fished for yellow belly and have very good results with fish over 5kg  a lot of fun. Thanks for your photos.

Muzz, thanks for your reply (not worth the effort otherwise Wink), can you post any pics of your cod?? I'm presuming over the metre mark??

our cod club trophy winner last year was 91 cm. I have seen pics of up to 140 cm (SA murray river) from buddies I know from the fishing forums.

Redfin are a delicacie in my books Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy a prized capture for their eating qualities  Smiley Smiley

and Mick, I'm with you buddy..... I am a cod virgin also Cry Cry

but hope to rectify that soon with a few bait sessions on a cod-stocked dam.

a few different versions of the bardi's Wink, these are chipped out of logs in our local forests.

...

...

once again, thanks for the replies.

There where 27 YB in the first photo all caught on lures in about 2hrs by 4 of us.    The cod was 12kg and was caught on a live yabby.
The fish on the cross bar a all cod and caught on yabbys the fish in the back ground are YB's most caught on river shrimp and worms. The last photo is of my late father in law the weight was 45lbs and was caught at Bourke NSW in 1977.

G'day Rick and all
Good to see some photos of the big specklie I grew up on the darling  river south of Menindee saw plenty come out of the water there best i saw was an 81 pounder in the old money (no-one seemed to interested in this new metric stuff) in about 95 and the bloke who landed it never made it back to the property, passed away suddenly with cancer about 7 months later. Lots of small stuff caught through that area last year which is encouraging.
I went into the inlet regulator which is letting water into Lake Menindee this arvo with my daughter spent an hour there and caught one 12cm carp.
Steak for dinner nice day out though and great photos of ripper fish.

We still have huge Murray Cod here in South Oz, but there is a Ban on fishing for them in the Murray River at the moment.

I have seen the pics of a couple of 140 cm Cod on our fishing forums a coupleof years ago.

A fishing mate accidently hooked a metre plus cod last year on a fishing camp. he was using light tackle targeting callop.

But we can still catch them in our Club Dams.

Went out yesterday to see if I could better Cindy's catch from a few weeks ago Roll Eyes

As the pics will show, I'm falling further behind Sad Roll Eyes Cheesy

This time at one of our Southern Hills Dam.

all prepared for the Big'un

...

Winners are Grinners  Roll Eyes

...

63 cm this time

not only me this time. Cindy scored her hat-trick of Cod a couple of weeks ago. 3 Cod from our last 3 dam visits.

Had 10 other members competing alongside her this time out. Only Cod caught on this outing.

It has to be the female pheremones that's making the Cod chase her bait  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I will make a you-tube presentation of her hat-trick one of these days, and will post it on this thread

Rick
