PICTURES: Gladstone fisherman almost reels in 2-for-1
ON THE one hand it's every fisherman's dream - but on the other it's a bit of a shock.
Fisherman Johnny Mitchell found himself unexpectedly dealing with two fish on one line over the weekend.
"I'd hooked a two kilogram estuary cod when a larger cod appeared and tried to grab it," he said.
Mr Mitchell estimated the bigger cod's weight at around the 20kg mark.
"He hit the smaller cod several times, but I eventually got it in," he said.
Mr Mitchell eventually released the smaller cod.
"I'm 99 per cent sure the big cod was waiting for it though," he said.
