First mack makes big im­pres­sion

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT - Ge­off Ogg

THE best fish I ever caught was yes­ter­day.

It was a 48cm mack­erel, right here at the Sugar Wharf.

It’s the first fish I’ve caught for many years, so it was good to get that feel­ing again. It put up a good fight too.

It was about 10am, and that catch hap­pened in the first hour. I had no idea what it was – my son iden­ti­fied it.

I’m up here on hol­i­day from Lith­gow, near Syd­ney.

We do var­i­ous trout fish­ing where I am in the Blue Mountains and be­yond but I don’t get the time when I’m at home, un­for­tu­nately.

My son lives up here and I’m us­ing his rod and a hired rod – most of the fish I’ve caught have been on the hired rod! So good on the local rods. I’ve also been catch­ing a lot of bream this morn­ing, about eight. Great lit­tle fish.

It’s been great fish­ing in this spot. We fished all day yes­ter­day.

And you can’t beat the view.
