PAUL’S FISHING
img1

Paul took along his deckie Casey Stoner last Sunday to Futurefish Foundations Mates Day on the Bay and had a ripper of a day taking Adam and his Dad Mick out for a few hours fishing. It was smiles all round thanks to all the volunteers who had a ball out on the bay with plenty of snapper coming back in. Wendy and Wayne Odgers were two regular Mates who come along each year, and they were rewarded once again with a lovely snapper of around 5 kilo.

A big thank you to everyone involved in the day; it would not be possible without the remarkable effort you go to ensure this day is successful year after year.
