Tenterfield Creek - Green & Gold
« on: May 20, 2012, 10:00:31 PM »
Fished a section of Tenterfield Creek on thursday via private property. I borrowed a light weight canoe to make it easier to get in & out of the hard to get to holes.
The fishing was initially very slow but ended up landing half a dozen Murray Cod & a couple of Golden Perch. Had another one landed when walking so I let it swim off with the lure while I walked the 10 steps back to the canoe to get pliers, that one threw the lure. Had another cod chase the lure in to my feet and give me a shower before darting back to its snag.
The section in the video where the camera is on the ground produced 4 cod, the last one kept coming back & hitting the lure (agro little bugger) until it finally inhaled it, luckily I'd crushed the barbs on the hooks as the rear one was actually in its throat, it came out very easily with no injury or bleeding..

I fished surface lures (paddlers), spinnerbaits and hard body lures. The only lure that caught anything on the day was a Garra Lure in green/black stripes. Didn't so much as get a follow on spinnerbaits or the paddlers.

Some pretty water in there, but it's hard yakka between holes, at one stage the creek is currently running underground so it's close to a kilometer carry from one hole to where the water comes back to the surface.

Anhow, here's some video.

Some beautiful country down through there.
Never managed to catch anything much in the hole on the property we had access to, but you'd see platypus if you were lucky, and there were heaps of rabbits on the creek flats to chase with a .22  :)

Sure is Brett. I don't think there's very many fish in that system. I did several km of creek without so much as a follow, then pulled 4 fish in one small spot the size of a carport. Then again after that the water was again too small for a few clicks to hold any fish, hence thats why there were 4 of them condensed into one small spot.

It's pretty water in your area mate, a fish is a bonus.

Great day's fishing Fitzy, and great footage. Going to head over there after I get back from North Queensland. Love that country.
Cheers mate,

BR the camera I had mounted is a GoPro Helmet Hero HD with wide angle lens. The underwater video is from my Olympus waterproof digital camera in video mode.

Cheers,
