2015 Cod Classic One Million $$$ Tagged Cod*

Never before has there been such excitement in the lead up to a fishing event than the upcoming 2015 Yamaha Cod Classic. With the amazing prize of a potential $1 Million* :lek: :lek: :lek: on offer for anybody who can catch "Phil" the specially tagged Murray Cod, you would be crazy to miss this iconic event held at the home of the Murray Cod - Lake Mulwala.

An estimated 3000+ anglers will be looking to share in the staggering prize pool that totals in excess of $150K plus the $1 Million Cash bonus*. A Isuzu D-Max Ute, seven boating packages plus a list of goods to long to mention will see the twin towns of Yarrawonga /Mulwala come alive over the weekend of December 4th - 6th. In its 16th year, the Cod Classic celebrates the opening to Cod season and continues to go from strength to strength being a bench mark for many other tournaments to follow.

The “Fishing & Outdoors” expo will be a main feature with the chance to grab a bargain not to be missed. Other popular parts of the competition include iconic entertainer “Flathead Fred” for the juniors; “Cod Talk” with Rod “Codmac” McKenzie and Gus Storer, and the Samurai Rods Australian Pro Casting Championships. The “Native Watercraft" Australian Canoe & Kayak Cod Fishing Championships enters its fifth year. Catering for the new breed of fisherman who chose to fish from either a canoe and kayak, this event is a must for those who chose paddle and Pedal over petrol and power.

Designed for the family with all levels of fishing skills catered for, everybody has a chance of winning one of the many great prizes on offer weather fishing from boat or bank, using either bait or lures. Majority of prizes are randomly drawn with you not having to catch a fish to be a winner! Those that are lucky enough to register either a legal size Murray Cod or Golden Perch go into additional draws to win extra great prizes. There will be over 1500 prizes (adults) and all juniors will receive several prizes.

Entry fee, Adults $95 pre paid / $100 on weekend and juniors $50. This includes four meals, souvenir stubby holder, a free ticket in major boat raffle, Wilson Slickback lure & Bassman Spinnerbait (for the kids), entry into 1000’s of lucky door prize draws and the promise of a great weekend.

Sharpen your hooks, pack the boat, grab your swag and baton down the hatches as the 2015 Yamaha Cod Classic is going to be HUGE! See you all in Yarrawonga / Mulwala for the chance to “catch a legend” in the mighty Lake Mulwala.

Near enough to 7 hours for me. After the first trip with the crew from this site I have made it 3 in 3 years. Again I am expecting to be there. A very well run comp that the kayaks can compete head to head against the boaties.
Bring it on..

Its not to be missed Mitch but don,t think it is too serious. Majority of people are there for just a good time. If you catch fish its a bonus and if you win something big in the raffles its a real bonus. The whole town gets behind the event. The amount of volunteer helpers is amazing. Pretty sure I,m going. Been twice before. Plenty of sponsors there with tents and you can get some good bargains. Plenty of kayaks to drool at and there is baitcasting championships for the professionals. They are worth watching. A great weekend and most meals catered for in your entry fee. No need to take any food at all really. Gaz

Cheers Gaz. I'm hoping it's not to serious , having caught a total of 2 cod in my
life I'm certainly not coming down if the emphasis is on achieving. A well run social event with an emphasis on camping and fishing on the other hand, with a chance of great prizes, a fresh dam to explore and during my annual leave sounds great ! I know a few people down that way as well. But if you think I'll be led down the path of your green ginger for a second time your wrong ... :grin:

Myself and a few buddies are bringing our yaks along to this, as first timers to the lake, where would be the best spot to base ourselfs?

Westyjams

I think you will find that "Team Yak Fisher" mostly comprised of members from KFDU camp together at Kyffins Reserve. I'm not exactly sure where bouts but keep your eyes posted here and somebody is sure to let you know.

Anyone who caught a cod at the Glen Lyon comp this last week felt like they had won a million dollars :lol: :lol: .
I might have to have a look at getting to this one.

The first year we went we camped at Kyffins, however the last 2 years (and I believe again this year) we were based at Denison County Park. It is right on the water and cod can be caught as soon as you launch. A 5 minute drive into town for all the festivities. Check out reports for the last few years.
I cannot recommend this event highly enough. All welcome to fish as “team yakfisher” remember to put that as the club name on the entry form.
