  • Ep83 – Lake Eildon: Trophy Murray Cod in Winter with Rhys, Dan & Jimmy

This is a new style of podcast… recorded on the water while fishing! Lake Eildon is a popular destination, so we planned a trip this winter to explore and unlock the lake. On the final night we decided to record an episode of the podcast, and we ended up doing it in the boat while fishing.

This is different and unique! Follow along as we share what we learnt on our trip to Eildon, how we found and landed trophy cod and how you can learn more about fishing the lake.

We also talk you through the technique we were using with the live tech during the night session on the water.

It’s different… but epic! Enjoy and please let us know if you like this podcast format.
