PAUL’S FISHING
img
It’s no surprise that Paul has the new Stabicraft over in Tassie at the moment with the epic broadbill swordfish bite! Broadbill’s are something Paul holds dearly to his heart and Wednesday he was only metres away from boating a fish of a lifetime. Paul battled this fish for almost 3 hours on his Shimano Talica outfit before pulling the hooks less than 50m away from the boat! Today (Thursday) PW again battled a monster, caught on camera but not quite at the boat, it took a big dive and looks like it may have been sharked! Paul will remain in Tassie for the next couple of days and we wish him the best of luck on his swordfish adventure. The action is being relayed via the IFISH with Tackle World facebook page if you want to keep an eye on how PW is going.
