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.
