WANT TO GO FISHING WITH
PAUL WORSTELING?

From 19 to 26 January 2016 Paul and the IFISH apprentice winners are joining Nomad Sportfishing on a special trip to fish the Tydeman Reefs, Princess Charlotte Bay and the Claremont Isles all in one trip. Nomad Sportfishing have 5 places still available on this trip for $7950pp plus $850pp for return transfers ex Cairns. This time of year is typically hot and occasionally wet, but with very light winds, and we expect the fishing on the outside edge of the reef to be going nuts. The variety of fishing on this trip is something I'm very excited about. To be able to explore the Flinders Islands and Princess Charlotte Bay one day, and then the outer Reef edge for big doggies the next day is the ultimate in fishing variety, and there is just about nowhere else I can think of that you can do this type of thing on consecutive days and get a real mixture of inshore, river and outer reef fishing in a single trip. Of course if you just want to hit up the doggies and GTs on the outside edge for the whole trip that is fine as well! Call Claire on 1800 021 014 or email info@nomadsportfishing.com.au for further details. See you then!

PAUL’S FISHING
img
img
A recent trip to New Zealand saw Paul and Cristy experience the breathtaking country, snow capped mountains and world class trout fishing that the Fiordlands has to offer. Paul and Cristy were guided by well known, Mark Wallace from Distinctive Fishing Experiences who not only put the pair onto the fish, but treated them to riverside luxury in this amazing part of the world. Mark did the hard yards, but reaped the rewards and was able to put Paul and Cristy onto some amazing rainbow and brown trout on both lure and fly. There’s just something about catching trout on fly that will be forever rewarding. Well done guys!
WESTERN PORT
HASTINGS
img
Chris and Michael O’Connell found the whiting on Sunday out from Hastings. The boys landed 17 whiting to 45cm along with some mullet and a few pinkies. All fish were caught on squid. Instinct whiting prowler rigs are also doing very well on the KGW.
CORINELLA

Brendan and his good mate Ben fished their secret spot out from Corinella last Sunday; the boys set out to target the elusive jew and were not disappointed! Brendan and Ben landed a 5kg fish on sunset and then later that night, pulled up this 24kg beast that measured 1.35m! Fantastic work fellas!

Well done to Gary Rose who landed this monster mulloway out from Corinella throughout the week. Massive fish mate!

Bailey Taranto had a smile on his face when he landed this snapper out from Corinella this week. Plenty of school sized fish have made their way into the port which has made some easy picking for a good feed around Corinella. The Instinct lumo snapper rigs have been working great on snapper in this area too.
