Fishing with Gerard

We picked Koura Bay fishing charter as they were recommended to us by my cousin who did a 2 hr fishing trip last month with them. Both 1st time anglers as we were ! They were very happy with the fishing experience, the service and the catch. We shared the same sentiments. Very experienced Captain Andy and crew. Great time. Would have been heaps better if the Mrs didn't get sea sickness !!
Awesome fishing afternoon!

It was my first experience fishing with Alan and he was great, tried different lures and areas of the lake to ensure we caught fish. Couldn't have asked for more.
