Lachlan Lads reel in a win at Wyangala

Forbes locals Brendan Finn and Andy Stibbard have won this year's Wilson Wyangala Cod Classic after reeling in two of the largest cod.

Brendan Finn and Andy Stibbard formed team Lachlan Lads and caught two cracking Murray Cod at 116cm and 107cm respectively.

They were joined by more than 50 teams at Wyangala Dam over a cloudy weekend from Friday, July 10 to Sunday, July 12 in pursuit of the mighty fish.

Mr Finn said they were thankful to Mitchell and Nathan Skeers from Eugowra who helped them out in preparing during the weeks leading up to the classic.

"Without them, it wouldn't have happened," he said.

Along with preparing in the weeks leading up to the annual fishing event, Mr Finn said they kitted out with updated fishfinders which helped them stay in touch.

Fishing commenced on Friday night after a 7pm briefing and continued through Saturday.

Fishing was finished up by 8:30am on Sunday with the return of all catch sheets and tokens.

The presentation ceremony began after that.

The team with the longest combined length for their two best cod were won the competition.

The Lachlan Lads set up their boat in the Abercrombie arm of Wyangala Dam where they fished late into the night on Friday.

After getting a couple hours of sleep, Mr Finn said they were back at it on Saturday, and it was then they caught their competition-winning Murray Cod.

Along with the 116cm and 107cm Murray Cod, they also reeled in another smaller Cod.

All three fish were released after being weighed, measured and photographed with the anglers.

As competition winners, Mr Finn and Mr Stibbard brought home a $2000 cash prize, the Mick Molner Cod Classic Trophy and Venom Swim bait Rods.

Mitchell and Nathan Skeers from Eugowra also finished strongly in the Wilson Wyangala Cod Classic, they reeled in the larges number of Cod out of all their competitors.

The brothers managed to hook seven Murray Cod, the largest of which was measured at 108cm long.

The next competition hosted by AYC Fishing Tournaments will be the 2020 DAIWA Copeton Cod Classic.

This will run over two days from October 25 to October 26.

Good fishing!
