When we arrived home in the wee hours of the morning it was bitterly cold and we sensed impending frost. We rose early to take advantage of the icy morning on Myall Creek.

Darling Downs Golden Perch

There was something about that particular lure and its colour that really stirred up the fish. Straight after tying it on, I hooked three yellowbelly one after another. Simon also managed a couple of decent Murray cod at 60cm and 70cm. This just goes to show that no two river systems fish the same.
