The waters off the Ningaloo Reef are renowned as some of the best fishing grounds in the world !
Our camp manager Tristan isn’t letting it go to waste during the off season. He spent an hour out on his kayak wrangling this spanich mackerel on a day off recently. Definitely not an idea for the faint of heart … Tristan tipped over as he pulled in the fish and somehow managed to right the kayak, climb back in AND keep the fish on the hook !
The spanish mackerel (aka Mackie) are the racehorses of the ocean. These exciting game fish are caught all year round in the tropical Ningaloo waters and once you know how to catch them, you are never short of a bit of action. Can’t say wrestling one from a kayak is recommended though ! This beauty was cooked up with chilli and lime and served fresh off the BBQ – mmMMmm yummo !
It’s not all just sweeping, painting and building during the off season…
