PAUL'S FISHING

Paul, Cristy and Jet Worsteling have enjoyed their Easter break in St Helens, Tasmania and of course that meant a spot of fishing. They have been fishing the shelf for swordfish and even though they have eluded them the incredible by-catch including pink ling to over 4ft in length has been amazing. They have also had a lot of success catching albacore tuna with 4-way hook ups of fish to 11.5kg. The best lures were Buku Zappers and smaller Buku metal heads in green and pink. To top off their seafood bonanza they have been putting out cray pots and catching some thumper crays. Fishing the inlet has been successful for the Worstelings as well using Ika and Odori squid jigs.
