Lures keep things in­ter­est­ing

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT - An­drew Gra­ham

I’M up here from Syd­ney on hol­i­days with the fam­ily and I thought I’d come down here to see what I can catch.

I like us­ing lures, soft plas­tics and hard bod­ies., they’re more fun.

I nor­mally fish in­land for mur­ray cod or I’d try and fish off the beach for flat­head.

Those mur­ray cod are mas­sive. The best one I’ve caught was prob­a­bly around the size of my fore­arm.

They’re heavy fish so it put up a de­cent fight. They’re great fun to catch.

I’ve caught an eastern cod which is quite rare but they’re pro­tected and you have to throw them back.

I’ve just been learn­ing the ins and outs of fish­ing, I didn’t grow up near the wa­ter.

For the last few years I’ve been learn­ing beach fish­ing.

There’s a bit of a dif­fer­ence be­tween fish­ing of the beach and in­land fish­ing, you have to fo­cus and learn new tech­niques.

I do a bit of bass fish­ing with sur­face lures.

I love see­ing the fish at­tack the lure and it feels like a good win when I land the fish as well, lure fish­ing is a bit more work but it’s more fun.

You see the fish at­tack and it’s such a cool sight.

Fish­ing for bass is my favourite sort of fish­ing.

I like fish­ing but I don’t get to fish as much as I’d like.

I fish by my­self, my fam­ily don’t like it. I think I should hire a new fam­ily.
