Then came the start off the blue water fishing for pelagic species king fish, tuna, marlin etc, as well as all the resident reef fish. Loving the ocean and fishing so much, I started working on a tuna long line, rod and reel boat, where we had days catching 40+ tuna a day. Feeling the need to help other people have experiences like mine, I started in the charter and guide fishing industry.
Every holiday or chance I had I would head for the NT, for 3 to 5 weeks, barra fishing. If I only had a week or so I would be up a stream somewhere fishing for trout or bass.
I travelled Australia with my partner for 5 years, fishing as many spots as possible on the way, trying to find all the best fishing camps, charters and good spots to go. Had some awesome experiences along the way.
