Barooga angler lands the catch of a lifetime
It's the kind of catch that has to be seen to believe.
Barooga angler Brayden Smith landed this monster Murray Cod at the weekend.
After several luckless fishing expeditions along the Murray, Brayden and brother Tyler were in the boat for just 20 minutes when the 132cm monster cod jumped on the lure.
"We've been going for hours with no result. This time we had been flicking lures for 20 minutes and then this," he said.
When he first felt the line bend, Brayden was convinced he either had a pretty good sized cod or a yellow belly.
"The big cods don't tend to fight too much, they are pretty slow," he said.
"This one gave a fair bit of fight."
