One of the old wives’ tales that has always amused me in the Queensland fishing world is a perception amongst many recreational fishermen that recreational hook and line fishing can’t have any measureable impact on fished populations.

Recently I was invited to put the Mako 234CC to the test following their open day at Mackay Mobile Marine’s new boat sales and servicing complex in Mackay. When you first enter the new boat yard on Evans Ave, there are some awesome toys on display! The Mako 234CC, however, stood out due to its sheer size, build quality and fishing space. So what is the Mako 234CC?
Gods or Crazies!

Well, the greatest show on earth, otherwise known as the G20 if you believe all the hype, came and went almost in the blink of an eye! Premier ‘Can Do’ was ready to accept the praise for the so-called seamless operation of the event, conveniently forgetting the hundreds of millions it cost us taxpayers, and is reportedly contemplating calling an early election to take advantage of his improved status courtesy of the enormous international publicity.

"Fish on!" I exclaimed excitedly as my spin rod bent over and the braid began screaming off the spool. My deckie for the day Drew looked over in disgust as this was fish number three from this stretch of bank and so far none were his.

As my daughters, Kirra and Hope, have grown, my wife and I have been fortunate enough to enjoy with them a whole stack of firsts. Their first fishing trip, their first ride in the boat, their first fish, their first fish on a lure... and so on.
As a primarily land-based angler, I’m left in the lurch when it comes to fishing technology. I don’t have any of those magic tools everyone else seems to have that makes fish just appear on their hooks (like a $2000+ sounder).
