Fishing Trip Cumberland Islands

November 2018


It was a fantastic day when David McGrath and his wife Rachel shouted his father Tony and brother Michael a day on the water with Action Charters.Leaving the Mackay marina at 0530, the crew had lines in the water by 0700 with a succession of smaller Nannygai and arm stretching Trevally soon hitting the deck.

Moving further east into the shipping channel saw the quality of the catch improve with a succession on red emperor adding to the tally on ice.The action was halted for a while after David hooked “the unstoppable”, with Michael tag teaming his brother in an effort to bring the beast to the boat.After fifteen minutes and with both guys’ arms screaming, they admitted defeat without seeing what was most likely a large tawny shark or something similar.

David didn’t have much rest though as a few drifts later he managed to reel in a rock-cod in excess of twenty kilos.Moving to the protection of one of the Cumberland Islands for lunch saw some quality Grassy Ssweetlip captured to make up an impressive mixed bag for the family to take home.
