Impatient for Cod Season Fishing

After checking the water clarity, the tackle box was opened and a bright red Cod Lolly was clipped onto the leader. There were so many snags in the section I was exploring that fishing them all would have taken days. Paddling upstream, I dropped a light anchor over to hold position while giving the most promising-looking snags a few quick …

After working our way through several shallow sections and dragging the yaks over numerous log jams, we popped out into a decent-looking pool.

I dropped my lure towards the back of the cutting and it was almost instantly monstered by a slightly smaller barra. Fortunately it took off towards the middle of the river …
