  • Ep79 – Kate Norman: Chasing Big Cod in Lake Eildon and Finding Time to Fish as a Mum

We are back with another episode and this one is special! Kate Norman knows her stuff when it comes to big Murray Cod in Lake Eildon, and it was a privilege to have her on for an episode. In this episode Kate shares her story, how fishing started and why she loves chasing cod so much, especially at Lake Eildon.

She shares how she juggles family life and fishing, how she goes about fishing solo and even how she deals with really bad motion sickness (and yes still goes fishing).

Then we jump into a chat about Lake Eildon cod and how Kate goes about chasing these monster fish, especially in the winter months, how the cod behave, her approach, how she plans her trips and works a bank, the key lures and what depth they usually hold in.

This is another amazing episode and I hope you learn plenty to help with your next Eildon trip.
