    Went for an early fish this morning while it was quiet at 7 am, as I gathered some good earth worms yesterday. In an hour I landed a nice yellow belly. I forgot my phone so no pics it was 46 cm and weighed 1.7 kg. this was followed up by two small cod before a twitch on my line in the holder I picked the rod up and instantly whack it was on then for young and old. I thought a big Carp a few minutes later I lifted a Cod out it was fat weighed 11.3 kg and was 83 cm.
    All fish returned safely.
    Still no Redfin. There wont be in Eildon soon with another 240,000 odd Yella's put in now and earlier this year. plus another 100,000 Cod now in the millions in stocking which is all good.
    But Trout and Reddies will suffer if not already.

    Great stuff Wally, a cod that size puts up a very strong and determined fight.
