Hume’s fishing pretty darn well

BEGINNINGS: Brodie Cook caught this big yellowbelly on yabbies during the school holidays. The first fish he ever caught, it was followed by five others that day.

Lake Hume has been terrific, with lots of fishos getting good bags of reddies. 

While a lot of small fish are still being caught, there’s not too many people going home without a feed.

And plenty are going home with enough numbers to put a few feeds away in the freezer for when the fishing’s not so productive.

STUDENT: After hitting the fishing books, young Ricky Rast's been at it again, catching this 4lb brown trout up at Mitta. He was using his new bait caster for the first time.

Yabbies, worms, blades and jaggers are all working – and all are even more efficient with a plastic above.

Cod and yellas are still being picked up in half-reasonable numbers on the troll too.

My young bloke Ben fished with Mick Lubke one day last week, and they managed three cod and a couple of yellas.

Mulwala is going well on the cod scene, as is just about every other river and stream in the area. Blowering is pretty much the same as Hume on the redfin, although there seems to be some better size among them.

YOU BEAUTY: Tony Doughty pulled in this monster 108cm specimen while using good old cheese during a spot of night fishing up at Blowering Dam.

Anyhow, get out among ’em and we’ll catch you next week.
