PAUL'S FISHING

Paul and Jet Worsteling free dived out from Mount Martha on Saturday, spending 3 hours in the water. They are happy to report plenty of pinky snapper to around 35cm. During their dive they saw good numbers of bearded goatfish and decent sized schools of garfish, Australian salmon and tommy rough. The guys took home a couple of leather jackets for dinner.

Jet then did a dive with IFISH producer Tom Hughes and speared Jet’s first boarfish, a target species of Jet’s for the past 6 months. They believe this to be a junior Victorian and Australian record for the species.

Paul, Cristy, Jet and friends then fished off Mount Martha on Sunday afternoon for pinky snapper. They found them in plague proportions keeping 3 for a feed that were served up deep fried asia-style.
