The monsters of Googong

By johnboy - 25 October 2012 17

YouTube brings us frankly astonishing footage of the monstrous Murray Cod lurking in Googong Dam.

It’s been posted by First Strike Production with this note:

This DVD series has been filmed, edited and created by Roman Dicovski and Barry Anderson.

These DVD’s are a strap yourself in arm chair ride to some of the best clear-water cod action ever captured on film. The DVD’s are an entertaining and educational traverse through Googong dam, which is nestled in the outer suburbs of the NSW township of Queanbeyan They feature the strike, fight and safe handling and release of multiple metre-plus, Murray cod along with Golden perch.

The DVD’s uncover some of the rarest Murray cod fishing footage as anglers emotions are laid bare on this native rollercoaster. Various lure techniques are explored with monster cod failing to lures.

This labour of love has seen hundreds of hours of footage whittled down to a action packed native fishing series which also features some breath taking scenery and a dash of light-heated humour.

Googong Green & Gold is stocked in all good Tackle stores across Australia and has now made its mark on the world of Native fishing dvd’s. The awaited third installment “Strike 3” is sure to be another hit and a must have for any keen Native angler. Googong Green & Gold Strike 3 captures the magic of the mighty Murray cod from spectacular strike, fight to release. Murray cod action at its best including rare footage of six big cod landed in a short two a half hour session on the water, along with several metre plus Murray cod also featured.

Strike 3 DVD captures the pure excitement these native green wonders bring to us lure fishermen, along with showcasing their spectacular sport fishing qualities and not to mention their explosive brute power! This DVD uncovers an abundance of beautiful wild life and some very rare seen wildlife footage from the mighty Brown snakes all the way up several birds of prey.

This DVD is a must see for any fishermen or admirers of the unique Australian wildlife, I guarantee you wont be disappointed.

Holy crap those fish are huge! I have never been fishing, nor been that interested in it, but even I can understand the excitement of catching a fish like that. Bloody amazing and so close by.

Having caught countless trout, 1 yellow belly & no cod I can tell you that there is a lot of years of nothing which goes on before you catch a fish of that magnatude.

One of the tricks of Googong is to have a boat to get you to the spots that no one else can get to. There is limited foot access & only vehicle access at the dam wall. That is not to say that you cannot catch fish in these areas, Redfin are willing & able to dive on a hook & give you some fun. They taste good too.

Did not watch the vid but I hope those were released.

They are small time cod according to my fathers generation who say lake George had man eaters in the waters.

The ones in the vid seem more reasonable.

Back on the Speewah we caught Cod so big that the flesh would feed a whole cattle station for a year and the rib bones were used as beams to build shearing sheds.

Of course, on the Speewah you had to take a weeks provisions simply to go and close the gate on the home paddock.

Man eaters? I have not heard these tales, but sounds like a job for Jeremy Wade

That beautiful Cod is so lucky to be living Above Queanbeyan. If it was in Burley Griffen it wouldn’t look half as healthy.
Great catch. great release.

Holy carp… What the fap are those fish on??

Did we have any reports of a cargo of steroids accidentally plunging into Googong?

reepy 7:18 pm 25 Oct 12

It sounds like bad porn. “Oh yeah, yeah, yes, yes, oh, oh. Oh my God he is a horse.”
