Local fisherman catches fish on free lures
THERE'S nothing better than catching a huge fish.
It's even better when you caught the fish on a lure you got for free.
Local fisherman Troy Butterfield did just that.
"It was awesome,” Mr Butterfield said.
"It's what every fisherman wants.”
Mr Butterfield said he caught two fish on the free fishing lures he received with The Observer last month.
"They're a good general soft plastic,” he said.
"I caught two and they tasted beautiful.”
Spending at least four hours fishing out the front of the foreshore, Mr Butterfield said he caught a fingermark.
"They were a good size, there's plenty around at the moment,” he said.
Mr Butterfield said people could catch a whole bunch of fish on the lures including mangrove jack, flathead, moses perch and grassy sweetlip.
The Observer fishing lures were given away for free with a copy of the paper and a token last month.
