  • Ep84 – Matt Martin: Chasing Golden Perch & Burrendong Dam

Matt Martin loves his Golden Perch, and it was great to get him on for a chat to hear his story, chasing yellas and also fishing Burrendong Dam. The start of the chat kicks off learning a little bit about Matt, his background in fishing and his travels to end up where he is today.

He has chased Barra on the ABT circuit and loves fishing a range of competitions for Murray Cod and Yellowbelly. His local is Burrendong and we get into discussions about the key bite periods, the behaviour of the yellas throughout spring and the best way to chase them.

Matt is a great fella, and this was a super casual chat. Enjoy our first episode on spring yellas for the season.
