The Eildon region has been well worth a feed lately, whether you're casting for cod or trout trolling in the lake, or fishing the pondage in Eildon itself. There have been whispers of some large cod coming from the lake, and these are testament to anglers perseverance. You don't land quality cod in Eildon by staying at home!
While the trout trolling reports have been a bit on the quieter side, there have been some nice fish landed. Customer Brian caught a cracker from the Delatite
Arm just recently trolling tassie devils. Brian had been trolling 'mega' tassies with the 'yellow mongrel' catching the fish. Brian had rigged the
his tassies with assist hooks which did their job in keeping the big brown securely hooked.
Not to be outdone Eildon pondage has been fishing exceptionally well since it's pre-school holiday stocking. There are plenty of large fish about and enough
feisty smaller trout in the 300g size you can be kept busy for long enough if you take the time to set up correctly.The specialized coarse method is
king here. If you're unsure of how to go about setting up for the pondage and other stocked trout fisheries come by and talk to the guys.
Customer George and his friend fished the pondage during the week where some really solid fish were caught. The bank alongside the 'footy oval' fished
best, with lighter weighted feeder cages advantageous over heavier feeders due to their ability of not snagging up on the rocks. Trout dough accounted
for a couple of fish and rainbow coloured powerbait did the rest of the damage.
