A Victoria fisherman has blown his competition out of the water after landing an impressive double catch.
Seasoned angler Derek Blow, from Bendigo, reeled in a 90cm cod on Saturday at Lake Mulwala, 400km southwest of Canberra on the NSW border, during the weekend’s Mulwala fishing competition.
Remarkably, tucked away inside its mouth was another 45cm cod.
Mr Blow’s amazing catch was duly rewarded, receiving extra points as both of the fish managed to swim away after the encounter.
Images of the two fish were uploaded to Facebook by Mick’s Fishing and Outdoors, prompting a series of users commenting in amazement.
“Now that’s a catch!” one user proclaimed.
“We are going to Lake Mulwala!!” another joked.
