Great going chris!

Sat, 2015-02-14 17:41

About time we showed these eastern staters theres more to fishing shows than bream and flathead!

oh dont forget the barras they endlessly catch from guide boats , thats a real thrill!!!!

haha I have often thought when pulling in monster salmon , chunky greenough tailor , metro macks or a red or two

gee those boys dont know what there missing!

I hope you told them that was a one off, dont wont the south stones being invaded by mexicans, coachroachs or god help us canetoads!

All tongue in cheek , anybody who makes the effort and does the time ( like chrisfish) deserves the rewards.

With all the land based efforts you have come up with felt it was just a matter of time before you were on the small screen.

Well done!

Thats a pure cracker off a fish. Awesome. The other bit is a deserved bonus.

PS: Do you always wear the "Stormy" jacket rock fishing? I just dont recall this from previous posts

I was thinking the same thing.

My guess would be filming duty of care but really isnt a bad idea when fishing off the stones down south.

Awesome fish mate well done!

 I normally don't wear one to be honest but as this was for TV and trying to set an example we all had them on. The spots we fish we are very careful with where and when we go and if fishing with other confident people like my brother and a few mates we look out for each other.


always looking for a new challenge!!

excellent result chris , that groper would have pulled like a train off the rocks

top marks for the safety gear too mate , way too many people have died of the rocks thinking they where all safe and ok ,
good examples like yours on film will help push the safety & education message in wearing a vest and tying off on the rings when rock fishing
