PAUL'S FISHING

Paul Worsteling and the IFISH TV crew fished out from Eagle Hawk Neck (Tasmania) with Jonah Yick in 600 metres of water deep dropping with Shimano electric deep drop gear. They boys caught good numbers of blue eye trevalla to just over 16kg. Their by-catch included blue eye grenadier, robalo cod and gem fish. Half way through the day a mako appeared behind the boat and after a 1 hour battle Paul managed to tag and release the estimated 130kg. During the fight the fish jumped over 10 feet clear of the water 3 times, all the action will feature in upcoming IFISH TV episodes.

Paul travelled from Eagle Hawk Neck to St Helens (Tasmania) with the family and the IFISH TV crew and caught up with good friends Indy and Gary. Together they did some deep drop fishing and caught good numbers of blue eye trevalla in 400 metres of water as well a an incredibly pretty frost fish caught by Indy. After their session in 400 metres they then headed in to 130 metres of water and caught good numbers of striped trumpeter. While in the St Helens area they dropped cray pots and managed good numbers of monster southern rock lobster. Land based fishing has also been on the cards with the highlight for Paul being King George whiting to 42cm caught using Squidgies soft plastics.
