PAUL'S FISHING

Paul, Cristy and Jet Worsteling fished Smithton in Tasmania; a trip of a lifetime that has been 2 years in the making targeting what could be the biggest King George whiting in the world. They had the most incredible session as a family catching approximately 20 whiting with the largest 2 measuring 60 and 62cm and plenty of fish caught in the 50-56cm range. The largest fish caught by Jet at 62cm weighed 1.7kg and estimated around 18 years old. The bait used to catch these monsters was calamari strips on paternoster rigs in 4 metres of water and will be incredible to see in the future on IFISH TV.
