Lake Eildon is one of the diverse waterways not just in Victoria but also in Australia. How many places can you think of where you can go fishing for a day and be in the mix to catch trophy Golden Perch, Trout, Murray Cod and Red Fin? The opportunities are endless but are they by no means easy, I have spent many trips exploring Eildon and when you think you have it figured out the lake will throw you a curve ball, you can go from having a big day out one day to drawing a blank the next doing exactly the same thing.
After dark is a new concept we've been refining for quite some time now, its a significantly reduced LED light specifically for night time fishing. We've found at night time our standard LED can be too bright, when activated at night it creates a huge glow around the tail. The After Dark has a reduced LED, and we've painted over the tail to block out the large glow from the LED at night.
Barramundi and Murray Cod are legendary Australian Sportsfish, they both grow well over a metre, and both are implosion feeders. Rather than opening their mouths and biting into something like we would do with a big chocolate donut they open their mouths so quickly that they suck down that donut with a single slurp quicker than you can say ‘on’.
I hear fishing tales all of the time, there is big fish in nearly a lot of inland waterways whether you’re fishing Blowering, the Murray river or anywhere in between. At the end of the day if you get enough people on the water fishing, a big fish is bound to pop up. When I start hearing success stories from everyone that's frequenting the same area I start to get intrigued, I love exploring new waterways and thought I’m going to give it a go. It was the last weekend of Cod season and after a few busy weeks I was dying to get away for the weekend, I had done an expo for 3 days the week before I needed a break from talking and decided I was going to throw the swag in the boat and go for a fish solo for the weekend. I drove up to the Murray River and start exploring some of the subsidiaries off the river to see what I could find.
