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.

Daniel at BIG4 Swan Hill is relatively new to the area but has strong fishing credentials working as a pearl diver and deck hand in Karratha, North West Australia.  If you need help setting up, finding information or have any general boating or fishing questions Dan is there to help you out.

Below we have summarised useful information to help plan your next fishing trip. The largest Murray cod ever caught was 1.8m and weighing 113 kg!!
