Gi­ant ray landed at Seisia

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

A GI­ANT st­ingray re­port­edly hooked off the coast of Cape York is the lat­est in a long list of mon­sters to have been landed in the re­mote re­gion.

Post­ing the im­age to the Cairns and FNQ Fish­ing Face­book group, an­gler Jay Ge­badi said he’d caught the crea­ture on a hand reel at Seisia, about 25km south west of the Cape York tip.

Seisia Hol­i­day Park man­ager Jules Far­ley said the waters off the tiny town’s wharf were known to har­bour gi­ant sea crea­tures.

“There are huge groupers, le­mon sharks ... any tourist has prob­a­bly been snapped off by some­thing. Lots of fish­ing rods get lost off there,” she said.
