  • Ep 34 – Clint Hansel: Murray Cod Behaviour & Chasing that Trophy Fish

This is a CRACKER of an episode with Clint Hansell, the big cod guru! This man knows his stuff when it comes to catching trophy cod in impoundments, and in particular, Blowering Dam. What I love about this episode is its unlike any other as Clint thinks outside the box and takes notice of incredible details when it comes to fishing.
