Mackerel Islands 2
Nick and Sarah continue their fishing expedition in the Mackerel Islands and today they start fishing near to the shore of Airlie Island. Its on with the soft plastics and Sarah is first into a fish which turns out to be a small Blue Teeth Wrasse. With patches of algae on the surface attracting small baitfish, packs of Trevally are hunting in the area and Lisa gets into a nice one on her light tackle outfit whilst Nick has some fun with an acrobatic Queenfish. With so many fish around the boat, its no surprise that they then get a double hook up with Nick and Sarah getting into a couple of Gold Spot Trevally. Next up, as some Gold Spot Trevally approach the boat, Sarah notices another fish following and manages to hook it up, landing a stunning looking Chinaman Cod. The pair then decide to fish from the shore and Nick throws some bits of bait into the surf before they both cast out and get into some acrobatic Long Toms with Sarah catching a real specimen. The sport from the shore continues as their epic trip comes to a close.
