Early April saw Ryan and Vic’s team from Muswellbrook ticking off a variety of species caught including Blue Maori, Rock Cod, Coral Trout along with Red Emperor, Green Job fish, Hussar and Tuna. Often no take species are pulled up and sent back to the water and this weeks trip was no exception with Chinaman and Red Bass. Squid was also on the list of catches this week inking some of the guys and the boat!! Rick and Marty ended the week with the most catches with Marty also claiming the biggest fish with a 6.5kg Red Emperor.

Some of the other species landed during the week included the flowery Rock Cod and the Blue Maori Rock Cod, Gold Band Snapper, Green Job Fish, Hussar, Spanish Mackerel and Cobia.
