The Catch
King Mackerel (Kingfish)

Sometimes we get father and son teams, and these guys were a great team, after heading out trolling for Mackeral and Queenfish, it wasn’t long before the Penn screamed into life, our youngest angler jumped to the rod screaming ‘fish on’, gotta love it. We double looped the gimbal on him, and he was onto the fight of his life. This fish wasnt going to come in easily, so with a bit of help from dad, we managed to glove this fine Mackeral, with an eye on fish for dinner it was decided to keep this fish but release the rest, which is exactly what we did. After a few more solid runs, and more tired arms we gloved a few more Mackeral and Queenfish, and a ton of Trevally. Always great to see young anglers so enthusiastic about fishing, well done guys, hope to see you both again, enjoy your dinner.
