PAUL'S FISHING

With the borders open to travel and thanks to a tip off that the offshore fishing was going off; Paul and the IFISH TV crew flew to the Gold Coast. Once there they hooked up with Dougie Burt from Doug Burts Tackle World Gold Coast and kicked off the trip with something Paul has never seen. 100 boats in 400 square metres of water all throwing cast nets and pulling in bags and bags of beautiful banana prawns. The IFISH crew did well with around 5kg of prawns caught and to top it off Dougie treated the guys to an amazing cook up while they caught some fantastic bream under the docks using some of the freshly caught prawns.

The next day the crew hooked up with Dougie's mate James Anderson to chase black marlin offshore. 2 beautiful marlin of around 20 and 60 kilos were caught and released using live baits in 85 metres of water. The highlight of the session was Paul catching an 18kg cobia on 15kg line.

Sounds like some exciting fishing that we can't wait to watch in the future on IFISH TV.
