WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SPECIES OF FISH TO CATCH AND STYLE OF FISHING?
Again, I can’t just pick one. Sailfish, thresher sharks and about 100 others. Sails are awesome because you see them bite, they jump, go deep are blistering fast and look hot. You can also catch them on light tackle. Apart from seeing the bite, threshers for the same reasons. Then GT’s, Jacks, marlin, whiting, snapper, perch, bream, Wahoo, queen fish etc: etc:
WHERE IS YOUR FAVORITE FISHING HOLIDAY DESTINATION AND WHY?
There is too many to mention. I will say the Rowley shoals, 360 kilometres North West of Broome, W.A. Followed very closely by Western Port. I love it because it is in my back yard and it is where I learnt so much about fishing. A close third is Cabo San Lucus in Mexico. Cristy and I fished their on our honeymoon, Wow.
DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE LURE AND IF SO WHAT IS IT?
I am a big wrap for cotton Cordell pencil poppers, they catch fish. I always carry plenty of squidgy flick baits, as there isn’t much that wouldn’t eat them. Barra classics have provided many highlights too.
WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE CATCH?
Firstly my wife Cristy and then my boy jet reef.
On the fishing scene it is probably my 275 kilo AAA Australian record Mako shark off Cape Woolamai, my AAA Australian record Thresher shark of 75 kilos off Kilcunda, my first 50lb barramundi at Awonga Dam, QLD.
Two Hapuku of around 60 and 40 kilos on the same rig off Great Barrier Island, NZ.
My 1.3 kilo King George whiting off Marion Bay, SA. My double hook up on two snapper of 25 +27lb off Whyalla, A black Bass in the PNG Jungle. A sailfish on a 250g jig of EP Island, Vanuatu, and an eight kilo snapper on a Shimano prowler nibble tip rod off Carrum.......... sorry I will stop now.
