Red Emperors - Once again Paul is on board the Wai Nawana skippered by Alistair Lau heading out of Cullen Bay near Darwin in North Australia. He fishing with local guide Tom Hughes and the pair are targeting Red Emperors. These fish aren't true Emperors, they are a member of the Snapper family or Sea Perch and they are regarded by Australians as one of the finest food fish to be had. Tom joined the iFish team two years ago ago as the "Apprentice" and has rapidly worked his way up the ranks to the point where he is now giving Paul as good as he gets in both the banter and fishing stakes. In about 20m of water they are dropping either squid or sardine deadbait down to the bottom, but there are other species lurking there and they catch a nice Mulloway and a Nanygai before Tom lands his first ever Red. They then switch, with some success, to squidgy plastics before Paul catches a Barracuda with the bacon left over from breakfast.
