Freshwater anglers are reminded the targeting of all cod species including Murray, Mary River and others, is now closed until December 1 for their breeding season.

Copeton Dam near Inverell however is open all year and recently Peter Sitarz from Newcastle made the journey to Copeton and despite the cold, was rewarded with a magnificent cod that measured 1006mm before a quick picture and back in she went.

Mt Kembla Village Hotel Fishing Club held their monthly comp last weekend and for a very welcome change, members enjoyed some nice spring weather on the water.

Most points went to Jason Beasley with a mixed bag including a solid 7.8 kg groper with runners-up going to Tony Corradini who fished with George Gavdarovski down at Kiola for a bag of snapper to 2.7 kilos.

BRE was won by Sil Corradini with bream and flathead from the Shoalhaven and junior prizes went to Dawson and Grace Beasley with reddies from St Georges Basin.
