Mal began fishing at a very young age with his Dad and Grandpa. Mal would fish at Carrum while his Grandpa collected boat launching fees. His dad would also take him to local creeks to catch bream and mullet. Mal's journeys has taken him up the coast where he lived in Merimbula where he started fishing from Eden to Tathra catching Marlin Tuna Sharks off the coast. I love fishing in Melbourne we have one of the best fisheries right here on our door step.
