A Barooga resident who is originally from the Czech Republic, Christina Hardina, has caught a 74cm long Murray cod weighing 6kg.

She caught it when she went fishing with her husband, Joe, last Monday afternoon.

She was on the riverbank 7km from the Cobram Barooga Bridge, towards Yarrawonga.

Christina was very excited that she caught a cod. She said her hands were shaking.

‘‘My arms were sore after reeling the cod in,’’ she said.

Christina said she didn’t go fishing often, just here and there. She hasn’t been for a whole year. She went on Monday to try and catch a cod to have for Christmas dinner.

In Australia, ham, turkey and chicken for Christmas lunch or dinner is traditional — but in the Czech Republic, fish is traditional.

Christina will share the cod with her family and friends for Christmas dinner.

‘‘I hope to go (fishing) again but my husband won’t take me,’’ Christina said.
