An Apology

Hi Everyone As you know the Murray Codference was held yesterday. I saw a number of familiar faces plus briefly met some of the members who I only knew through their posts. I think all up over 500 people attended. If you want to see my presentation you can view it at: https://www.facebook.com/Victor...

Re: Donuts on the Yarra @ Healesville 5th Dec

Chris The Yarra near Healesville can produce good fishing for carp, reddies, eels and maccas with an odd trout and even cod. However, the stretch near the road bridge has never fished well to my knowledge. There is very little public access from Woori Yallock to Yarra Glen apart from the highway bri...

Re: Goulburn Boofs

Are you landbased or in a boat? My boat has been out of action for some years so I am currently land based. A lack of a boat reduces fishing options on the river but gives me more exercise! did you get it from around the usual bit of river? Dave I have been fishing the western side in that general ...

Goulburn Boofs

Following on from my trip to the Murray I've had another crack at the Goulburn with surface lures. The reason I put these posts in is to give some idea of what is involved in taking cod off the top and encouraging other members to do so. Its been a while since I drowned a bait chasing cod and I have...

Murray boofs

I slipped up to the Murray for an overnighter, roughly in the area where FV has its cod trip. The river is running very high, with some access tracks under water. Being so high it runs fast even close to the bank and it is difficult to fish, particularly with surface lures: high river.jpg One trick ...

Re: Cod Opening 18

Gee Dave you set the bar pretty high at the start of the season! :a_goodjob: I'm stuck at work but will have a flick through the week. You know mate we are pretty lucky here that we can go out boofing close to home. Further afield on the Murray there is more chance of catching a metery and there are...

Re: What a fizzer!!!!!

Is this the type of lure you are talking about Will? Yes Jim, thats the type. Very effective for following up a missed boof, particularly in daylight. You have to keep winding it but if you let it sink just under the surface it makes a loud rattle. In Greggo's pic second from top is a butt plug, :t...
