Angler’s amazing shot gets worldwide attention
When he hit the shutter release, Exmouth local Eddie Lawler was not aware he had taken something special.
This photo of a fish breaching with a mullet in its mouth off the Exmouth Coast has garnered worldwide attention, being shared on major US fishing sites and in magazines recently.
Lawler said the photo caught his eye when he loaded it onto the computer after getting back to dry land.
“It all happens very quickly when we’re catching them, so we don’t always get the opportunity to get good photos,” he said.
“This one came up on the leader and jumped straight at us.
“It’s a pretty cool photo — you don’t see that very often.”
Despite the huge reception for the photo, Lawler said catching the fish was still the most exciting part of the day.
