- Few More Fisho's - Josh Cheong from Indepth Angler - The Unxplord - Harry Watson from Jackall Australia.
Lets just say we had the knowledge and gear coming out our ears. We were set. I'll keep this story short so simply put - If you're planning on taking a trip to Copeton make sure you pack some spare time in your pockets. The Murray Cod up there are next level, but when you put a 70+ hour week in on the water it takes it out of you!
Here's a very quick overview of the week! For more info about Copeton, chat to one of the pro staff at Trelly's Shepparton!
WHAT TO EXPECT
There is a lot of social media hype about Copeton (Its true about the BIG COD!) but I'd like to clear up what I think you should expect in a fishing session at Copeton other than the freezing cold this time of year.
Average Session - 0 -2 hits, 0-1 Hook up
Great session - 2 - 4 hits, 1-2 Hook up
Awesome AF Session 4+
Roughly twenty Murray Cod were caught with the smallest going 65cm - average size between 70-95 and four 1m+ fish.
Leader of choice: Schnieder 55lb Mono
Apparel of choice: (Prepare for the cold this time of year)
Stoney Creek Themolite or Long Bush Shirt
This gear is a rough guideline and what we found best for casting big lures and staying warm!
"GREAT SUCCESS!" says JC, 2017.
