Our second metery for the second week running! 101cm today!

Big week for the boys. Regular Scott brought his 19 year old twin sons Rory and Oscar this year who gave him a run for money in the size stakes but Scott more that won them over with the numbers! Endless casting, endless species. Some huge sessions. Best day 100+. Over 400 fish for the week. The fishing continues to improve :-)

With heavy hearts we lifted a rum to toast our great friend Mike Carney last night on his final journey.

Townsville, Townsville sport, the fishing community, a big Toyota family, and lots of friends and family in between will be remembering a great man today with hearts heavy like ours. But the stories will live on.

RIP Mike. One in a million. We miss you already!

One of Luke and Mike’s favourite gags that never got old - “Quick Mike, put your thumb on the spool! But I don’t have a thumb!!!”

KEKOA Sports FishingMike used to often tell the story of the first time he fished with Luke some 20 odd years or more ago. They had a good day's fishing and at the end of that day were having drinks on the back deck and there was this young fella there and Mike was telling him about their day and good fishing... And Luke says "I know, I was there. I'm your skipper!" And Mike laughs and says he had no idea :D Many more since!
