A big haul, but won't be winning any fishing competitions
IT WASN'T what this family was hoping to reel in, but the catch will go down as their biggest haul yet.
Liam Coughlan was fishing under the bridge on the Boyne River with his family when they decided to change spots.
But pulling up the anchor was proving a heavier task than usual and it quickly became clear they'd hooked something extra.
"I saw the tyre first and thought, well we've got a tyre," Liam said.
"But then the whole bike came up. I was pretty shocked. We all just looked at each other in disbelief.
"It was the best bite we had all day."
The Coughlans weren't the only ones to pull something other than a fish from the Boyne this morning.
Des Crane, who has been competing in the Boyne-Tannum Hook-up for 12 years, was fishing off the ramp when he pulled in a pair of old jocks.
"That's the weirdest thing to catch, that's for sure," Mr Crane said.
