Brett Geddes | November 2016

In all the years of writing for this magazine starting way back in the first 2004 issue, this report is number 142 on the Gippy Lakes and possibly the most awe-inspiring.

As usual, they’ve taken a serious liking to expensive hardbodies and are quick to suck them down.

We’re finally seeing a break in the weather, which has been miserably cold, wet and windy in recent weeks. It hasn’t been uncommon to experience four seasons in one day, and these conditions have kept many anglers indoors.
