Scott and Wighton are on an eight-day trip around regional Queensland, fishing the most popular sports and reeling in some monster catches.

The day they spent on Lake Awoonga was supposed to be a travel day for the pair, however, we are sure they are glad they stopped in with fish like these.

Gladstone Area Water Board and Gladstone Fly and Sport Fishing were approached for comment.
