Wagoe Mackerel Land Based

Wagoe Mackerel Land Based

On a weekend trip to Wagoe in winter, this 32kg Mackerel was our one and only mackerel for the trip. Was caught on the last day of our trip before we had to leave the next day.

 We struggled to get hookups on the smaller macks and we left the ballooned bait out way past normal feeding time. At 11:45 and after winding in most of the way before we were about to packup, this monster climbed on and blew us away with its size.

 Was a very memorable capture.

We even managed a short vid.

Cheers
