The fish came from the Murrumbidgee near Narrandera. The guy in the pic has been using Humpbacks for years and caught way too many big cod on them
. That trip a mate was using the white one and said it wasn't working so Dirk picked it up, tied it on and within half an hour had that impressive 125cm fish on
Green is a favourite for us generally and the smaller fish (measured 99cm) was caught on that exact lure two months before on the same snag, same retrieve and same angle of approach. Both fish had the unfortunate scars of part lips missing from encounters with set lines (we'd guessed) but otherwise seemed super healthy and active.
Time was in late May, quite a few years ago now.
Hope that helps fill the info in.
