Fishing on the Mighty Murray

The huge Murray cod mounted near the park in Swan Hill says it all – this is cod country. Local angling stories in this part of the world revolve around cod.  But the more popular fishing is for the Redfin (English Perch) and Golden Perch.  The Redfin not only fights well and make excellent table fare, but it often bites better when the water warms up!  And don’t forget the Yabbies and Murray Crayfish.
