AROUND THE STATE

GOULBURN RIVER

THE STONKERS ARE BACK! Victorian Fisheries have spent this week stocking 7 tonnes of ex-brood trout into the Goulburn River and Eildon Pondage in time for Trout Season Opening this Saturday. With so many reasons to chase a fish of a lifetime why wouldn’t you head out and give them a go.

LAKE EILDON

Brian Buttigieg fished Lake Eildon on Monday and hooked a beast of a Murray cod that measured 1.25m on a surface lure in amongst the snags. Fantastic fish mate and even better to hear it swam away strong.

Scott Wingrove‎ landed a monster cod last week fishing Lake Eildon casting lures around structure.

YARRA RIVER

Izzy Sesto finished off the Murray cod season right with a beautiful Yarra River cod caught on Saturday morning using a spinnerbait.

SNOWY RIVER

Frank Milito and his son Lewis have had some cracker sessions fishing the Snowy River landing some solid bream on Zman soft plastics.

PORT MACDONNELL, SA

The Rodgers clan had an epic day on the water out from Port Macdonnell with 2 barrells landed with one coming in on a Bonze Winged Exocet in Paris colour purchased at the Mornington store.

ROMPIN, MALAYSIA
