Customer Gary is a keen fisherman from northern NSW who likes fishing for mulloway and luderick around the rock walls and breakwaters of that part of the coastline.
Recently Gary headed up to the central QLD coast, where he stopped at Yeppoon. Yeppoon is situated just north of Rockhampton and the area has no shortage of bays, creeks and river that hold some nice fish.
Gary hadn't caught a barramundi so he decided to try around the beaches of nearby Rosslyn Bay. Not long into the session Gary hooked a nice fish about 20m from the edge of the shoreline which started jumping and trying to throw the hooks out.
After a torrid 35 minute fight, Gary landed his first barra which measured 116cm and weighed around 13kg. Gary caught the lovely fish on a large 180mm hardbodied lure on a Penn spinning outfit spooled up with 10kg line. Not a bad fish for his first!
