Nymboida cod


Recommended Posts

Decided it was time to try somewhere new for a day trip, a camp site in the Nymboi-Binderay NP known as "cod hole" looked appealing, from the turnoff on the main road onto dirt it was obvious this was somewhere wild, 35km of extreme dirt road later (which involved seeing a lyrebird, turkeys, snakes and loads of other wildlife) we arrived at "cod hole" did it look the goods, yes..yes it did


I had heard there are bass here but also loads of small Eastern cod, the placed looked fishy.

Started hammering casts at the back of a boulder and fifth cast in my spinnerbait was hammered with a brutal first run after a tussle a small cod surfaced and spat the hook.

Worked my way downstream, then watching the spinnerbait come over some rocks and disappear in a green flash, had to grab the spool and pull hard to get it back and out came a solid cod, measuring up at 53cm happy was not the word



the fish was handled with absolute care and released after a couple of quick picks and a good revive


The trip only involved one fish but this Eastern cod was my dream catch

thanks for reading
