How long you have been fishing?
Since I was 10 – we lived in Stanley, and fortunately, the Stanley wharf was nearby. Back in the 80’s & 90’s it wasn’t unusual to see over 300 people fishing off the main wharf for blue warewhou (snotty nose trevally). I was lucky because I didn’t have to get up at 4 am and travel from Burnie or Devonport to get a good spot. It was exciting to see so many people talking about fishing & trying to get a feed to take home a brag about.
Your favourite fish to catch why?
Bream – If you catch one over 45cm, and you have a major battle on your hands, they pull line like nothing else for their size. I really enjoy the challenge of getting the fish away from the structure, as they head straight for it to dust you off, and they are tasty to eat.
Anything SHIMANO – Nasci 4000 spin reel, great all-rounder with grunt – 9kg Drag.
TIP: Remember You can’t catch ‘em in your lounge room – get out there & fish!
