Mary River Dreaming
« on: May 22, 2011, 09:48:44 PM »
Had the family camped beside the Upper Mary River over the weekend.  Pretty little spot just perfect for the kids.  Somehow the rods found the way in the ute :P  Spent most of the time helping the girls casting spinnerbaits, but did get the chance to flick one or two.  Was stoked to come up tight against a Mary River Cod.  Was a bit nervous when my initial thoughts were confirmed by a slash of green, especially as I was on 6lb string and 8lb leader.  My first one and damm they are a pretty fish.  Very quick pic and watched it power away strongly.

Very happy!!!

Thanks guys.  Having never seen one in the flesh before I was really impressed as to how vivid the green colouring/spotting actually is (photos don't do them justice).  It was also great to see it is such healthy condition post flood as the water was 6-7m higher then what it was in the photos.

Special fish.
