Stephen Rhook and Ashley Dance launched this morning off Port MacDonnell, and within less than a minute of having lures in the water, 3 lures in and about to send out the 4th, they had a double hook-up on barrels.  One can only imagine the mayhem as without someone to organise gimble belts, harnesses, a boat driver, etc, Ashley managed to get his fish in after a little over an hour, while Rhooky’s, a substantially bigger fish, took approximately 3.5 hours to land, both on 37kg outfits.  Ashley finally breaks his barrel hoodoo, while Rhooky, he just continues to be a barrel magnet, as he will happily tell you himself no doubt!  Congratulations boys!  Ashley’s weighed 99kg, while Rhooky’s was 131kg.

Apollo Bay has seen several hookups today, with some lost and some landed…
