In "Fishing out of Townsville" - Paul heads to Townsville, Northern Australia with all sorts of fishing in mind. First up he joins local expert Derek Maynard for a cruise around the mangrove lined islands and creeks where they hook Black Spotted Cod, Barramundi, Queenies and of course Mangrove Jacks. As always the mangroves provide natural cover in which the fish lurk as well plenty of snags, which make playing them very tricky. He then heads out into the channel with Tony Mossop, where they use freshly caught bait to target Golden Snapper also known locally as Fingermark Bream. Finally he trolls the bay with Roly Newton who's had 50 years in which to perfect his Spanish Mackerel fishing technique. He uses a 6 hook herring deadbait held down in the water by his trusty old down rigger. Its very effective.
