Bidgee Cod on surface lures – video

We were lucky enough to sneak in a Murray Cod session just before Christmas. Lee, Curto and I made our way down to the Murrumbidgee River armed with half a dozen spinnerbaits and crankbaits.  But it was the prospect of throwing the big surface lures in the bottom of the tackle box that had us really excited. The 110mm jointed Mantis and Cod Wallopers are proving irresistible to feeding fish, especially during dawn and dusk.

We landed five off the surface and caught one of these on video – I think you’ll agree the explosive strike is worth the hours and hours of casting. Thanks to Curto and Lee for a great job capturing the moment.

Enjoy & Merry Christmas from Flick and Fly!


Hamish Webb, Dan Firth, Graham Fifield and Lee Georgeson have been fishing the south-east Australian region since 1987. Since then they’ve become avid sportfishermen who are constantly looking for new ways to challenge themselves. They are all scientists and conservationists who are passionate about the long-term sustainability of the ecosystem in which they live. They promote understanding and appreciation of the complex socio-political, economic and environmental issues surrounding fish, fishing and fisheries, while never losing sight of the various motivations that keep them coming back. In English, that means they love all things fishing and have a damn good time on the water, and that’s all that really counts in the end!
