Congratulations to Jono Moore on your 105cm GoFish Nagambie winning Murray cod, you are this weeks Catch of the week.

GOFISH NAGAMBIE

Jono Moore’s 105cm Murray cod won him $80k and 1st place in the GoFish Nagambie 2022 competition. The cod was caught on the Saturday morning casting big surface lures. The current was moving quick and Jono cast it in behind a log and the big cod smashed the lure and took him straight under the log. It took 5 minutes to get him out and was only just hooked.
The fish of a lifetime! Well done Jono!

PAUL'S FISHING

Paul Worsteling and the IFISH TV crew have just been fishing Port Stephens where they had an absolute blast fishing with Brent from Tackle World Port Stephens. They fished over 3 days and managed to capture some amazing action that will grace our screens on future episodes of IFISH TV in the coming months. They caught and released good numbers of black marlin to 50kg caught on live slimey mackerel set around 30 metres off the back of the boat in about 40 metres of water. The marlin put on a good show with heaps of jumps all around the boat and on the leader. At one point while chasing marlin a massive great white came up to the boat to check out what all the action was about.

The other highlight for the trip was catching monster dusky flathead around the islands of Port Stephens. The best fish landed was over 80cm with multiple fish caught in the 60cm range and one fish that won it’s freedom was estimated in the 90s.
Port Stephens is a beautiful part of the country and well worth adding to your bucket list. You can see all the action from this trip in upcoming IFISH TV episodes this year.

Paul’s Black Marlin Gear:
Shimano Tiagra 10kg game rod paired with the Shimano Tiagra 16 spooled with 10kg monofilament running a 60lb leader and 8/0 inline circle hooks.
