Montague Island catch worth the journey

The only thing Les Waldock loves as much as a big fish is a great picture of a big fish.

The passionate member of the Narooma Sport and Gamefishing Club has seen plenty of both recently.

"I had the pleasure of fishing with Dave Mitchell, Gavin's brother, visiting Narooma from Melbourne," Mr Waldock said.

"Dave hit the jackpot with the Kingfish on the bite at Montague Island this morning (Thursday, November 28), catching some nice fish to 80 cm on both jigs and live bait. It was a thoroughly enjoyable morning, glorious weather and the freezers are full. Members Ray and Lynn Layton were also out at the Island catching some nice Kingfish."
