If you live in Melbourne, have no time to drive to Gippsland but feel the constant urge to kayak, portage up and down rapids and lob expensive lures into gnarly snags the Yarra river can supply you with a sweet sweet hit close to home. Unfortunately theres no bass but there are some fat greens to monster your lure every 2000 casts or so. Here are some of my bass substitutes from this season.

I would happily substitute bass for cod on most occasisions, I love that initial strike and surging run, even if they are 1 in every couple of hundred casts,

Lovely fish, and good handling techniques. Nothing beats the mighty, mighty Murray cod. I like chasing bass, but they're a distant 2nd compared to cod. Cod are No. 1.

Those are some very cool and wicked cod I would chase them a lot more than bass if I had reliable cod water closer to home
