Ron Murphy

Member since June 2015 Airlie Beach, Australia
Background
Ron Murphy is the owner-operator of Norval Reef Charters. He began working around boat-building shipwrights in his teens, as well as fishing off the local jetties. As a young man, he bought a small tinny, then moved to an old timber vessel, which he brought back to its former glory and fished up and down the coast.
Techniques
Ron enjoys deep water fishing off the swains on the Queensland coast, and also in the shoals around the reef in his tenders .Fishing off the main boat in the deep he likes large deck winches and heavy gear so that when the big fish are on they stay on, and trolling is also always fun .
