Another Nice Cod & New Yak PB!

#1 Post by Rory222 » Sat May 18, 2019 11:22 pm

G’day all

Was a nice day today so decided to fish the backyard - I live on the Ovens River in NE Vic.

Dragged a stumpjumper about and flicked spinnerbaits for a couple of hours with little response except for one good hit as I was getting ready to call it a day.

After a few solid runs, a nice 68cm cod was the result which is a new yak PB for me so very happy with that 😁😁😁. This fish was lovely and healthy and a sign that the river is in good nick.

Thanks for reading.

Thanks Les, yes it took a couple of short runs but fortunately it didn’t play dirty and tie me to a snag :grin: . So just a good fun fight. I like those ones with not too many gritted teeth moments :wink:

You're on fire Bree! I've wanted to try the lower Ovens for a while now. Are you between Wangaratta and the Murray?

Thanks Ozzy and Arpie.

Sure am Ozzy. Pretty handy to some nice water. Just a shame it is also a bloody long way to the salt.

Please Arpie don’t tell me that...god knows when I’ll get back up there...probably not before Oct/Nov :cry:
