Bizarre beach catch

One of the truly great things about fishing is its unexpected aspect.    

A day’s fishing can provide plenty of surprises, none moreso than the one a female angler on the NSW south coast received recently.

As reported on a fishing report on Rob Paxevanos’s Fishing Australia website, while fishing at South Beach Shellharbour using pilchards on ganged hooks, Jennifer Martin hooked what she thought was a good sized Aussie salmon or tailor. What eventually appeared from the surf was a 1.2m long broadbill swordfish weighing four kilograms. What the wayward broadie was doing in such shallow water is anybody’s guess…  

Just another example of why so many people love fishing.

What's your reaction?
