IFISHTV SERIES 11 THIS SUNDAY 5.30PM
img
Pooncarie, New South Wales
This Sunday 5th June on ONE at 5.30pm

When someone is known locally as the Cod King, then you’re rest assured, your chances of pulling in a Murray Cod are pretty good.

But when he says we’re fishing for ‘cod off the top’ then it makes it a bit more interesting.

On Paul Worsteling’s IFISH with Tackle World this Sunday on ONE at 5.30pm you’ll see Paul fishing with CODMAC’s Rod Mackenzie near Pooncarie, NSW and it’s that surface implosion ‘boof’ they’re waiting for.

Cod hit hard and go tough in the snags, let’s see if the boys can outsmart this iconic Australian species.

Will it be ‘Cod Gold’!

Good luck with your fishing and stay safe on the water,
