Daniel Paull
Some people complain to me about the poor fishing these days. But when you see a story like this about two young blokes giving fishing their all it is refreshing. They are keen and "just do it'. Daniel Paull is already an awesome angler and is still a young teenager. Take lessons from this fine young man. Ed.

Arthur River 14/10/2012

Trev, myself and a few mates headed to Arthur River for a day’s fishing. We left Launceston at 6.45 on Friday night and arrived there about 3  1/2 hours later to a nice unit and “more than ready for bed” after a big day at work. The others had a different plan and were well into the whisky. After a few laughs, 1.30 am soon came around and then it was finally off to bed. Trev and I awoke to the smell of eggs and bacon cooking and after quick feed we were the first to head out onto the water making our way to the mouth of the river. Doug soon had one on a 4 inch softie but he only stayed on for a couple of seconds unfortunately.

We then decided to drift around in this area and do some spinning for another hour for little result. Changing our game plan, we headed up the river trolling. Trev soon had one on about 6 inches long then nothing for 3 hours, so we decided to light up the BBQ. After finding a nice spot on the bank, we spent some the time brushing leaches off while the sausages were cooking.
As soon as we  got back into the fishing Trev hooked a nice one that we estimated to be 6 or 7 pounds , we travelled about 20 klms up the river but unfortunately didn't hook any more of the big fella’s.
All others hooked where only pan size.
Definitely a great days fishing.
Back home waiting for next weekend, hurry up!
Dale & Trev
