PAUL'S FISHING

Paul and the IFISH crew have spent the past 7 days fishing around Perth, Western Australia, starting with fishing with the Dixon Brothers doing some land based rock fishing in remote locations from Albany to Lancelin.

Next up the crew headed north with Perth Fishing Safari’s to fish using drones from the beach. The crew managed to catch several massive snapper ranging from 6kg to over 7kg as well as a few smaller models while fishing in the middle of the day.
