Amanda's First Coral Trout

Amanda's First Coral Trout

Did some drifting at Helby Bank today, Amanda scored her first legal size Coral Trout. A nice 50cm fish, she also had the hooks pull halfway up on something that went off like a hooter trout.

Once again I got nothing, I might stick to driving the boat...
