November news letter

9 Nov 2010 4:18 AM

With the cod season opening on December 1st most anglers are watching the rivers and dams in egger anticipation.

Blowering, Burrinjuck, Hume Weir, Keepit, Wyangla are either full or have the most water in them since the late 90’s.

Most rivers have also experienced flood conditions or certainly have been running a banker.

What does this all mean to the angler; I guess some difficult fishing conditions for a little while until the rivers start to run clear and return to a normal height, while the dams will have a lot of new ground inundated posing a debris problem, all this will be a short term problem.

In the long term the floods and high water flows at this time of year hopefully will be the start of one of the best breeding seasons for at least the last decade. The flow on from this will restock and help restore our waterways.

The Family fun day at the Fisheries Centre at Narrandera earlier in the month was a fantastic success, 3.500 people attended the day and were treated to all things fishing.

We also made the trip to Tamworth and had a tackle night with Dean and Jenny from Tamworth Fishing tackle and Outdoors.

Another good night and well worth the drive, it gives us a chance to talk to anglers from different areas, and this in turn helps us to keep up with lures, colours and techniques for different regions.

As a flow on from the night Dean is offering a 10% discount on all Oar-Gee Lures in stock for the month of November to all people who go into the store and tell him you read about it on the Oar-Gee Web Site, you must mention that you read about it here to receive the discount.

On Thursday the 11th of November Trellys Tackle World in Shepparton Victoria is having his club night which is the led up to his big sale weekend, if you haven’t been to a club night before it is the place to pick up some very good bargins and have a chat to the reps and Manufacturers.  Oar-Gee Lures will be there on the Thursday to talk to all about lures etc.

With the past months rain and floods stopping most from fishing our photo of the month entrants have been a bit slow, but Anthony will get an Oar-Gee Lure of his choice for his photo of a 70cm Flathead caught on a Lil Ripper. Anthony caught and released this terrific fish at Merimbula on the NSW south coast

With the cod season starting next month our lure of the month is the 75mm Plow, arguably one of the best selling cod lures in the country for Murray Cod. This versatile lure is available in 2 depths 4.5mt and 7.6mt and can be trolled or cast and retrieved with great success in either dams or rivers.

Until next month good fishing.
