They aren't barramundi, but there's something great about the speckled fish ...

cod while trout fishing

Post by barra mick » Fri Sep 09, 2011 5:22 pm

hi

two trips ago i was casting a lure into a tiny inlet of a lake ,no more than a foot deep that i spotted a brown trout in.

got smacked by this cod......who no doubt was after the same trout as me !!

no sure what he weighed or any of that cause once i got the lure out i put him back

scared the sh...t out of me though !!!

Were you really expecting a trout to take that No# 2 stump jumper Mick??? :?

Or did you know there was cod in there?

Didn't have a dark line through the eye towards the nose did it mate? Bit hard to see from the photies. Looks a little like a trout cod, protected and rare ....unless you know where they have been stocked .... :wink:

prolly not....

Nice fish though on light gear :catch:

No worries....I know of a reservoir not too far away from Eildon that has heaps! Just a bit difficult to get too if you catch my drift. Beautiful fish!
