Brayden McPherson, fishing with his old man Duncan and the rest of the Torquay crew out wide off Port Fairy, managed a pigeon pair of makos around the 50kg mark, caught within about 10 minutes of each other. A couple of large bags of flake ice from Richardson Marine on the way through kept them pristine for cleaning once home.
The crew of Neville and Ashley Dance’s “Intruder”, also hit the deep off Port Fairy, and also caught 2 makos, with Darcy Graham getting his first ever at 58.8kg, and Travis Graham landing one at 39.3kg.
Alex Saisanas, fishing aboard Marco’s Barcrusher with Suzuki DF150, also known to some (his mates!) as “Crusher Charters”, took the cake for the day off Port Fairy, at the shelf as well, with their mako which tipped the WOLGFC scales at 106.5kg.
One of the boats which is the major lucky prize for the Shipwreck Coast Fishing Classic (every $25 entrant goes in the draw, even if you catch no fish), was looking impressive on display at the Warrnambool Breakwater, click this link or the picture to enter online and see all the info.
