Spanish Mackerel Shootout 2009 Mackay Game Fishing Club
Spanish Mackerel Shootout 2009 was held again by Mackay Game Fishing Club in Mackay, with the obvious goal of catching Spanish Mackerel. Reefari was a major sponsor and didn't need much of an excuse to go fishing. Some great fish were caught over the weekend. We tried hard, did some huge miles, tried all the top spots, but with some Westerly in the wind, the spanish mackerel fishing was shut down with most fish coming from the Whitsundays or south at Hay Point. We have 4 good hits, and missed every one. That's fishing and you don't win them all. Had the gun bait, Wolf herring, Gar and some great lures. Anyhow still was a top weekend with the boys and will do it all again next year. Best Spanish Mackerel was 29 Kilo's caught by Mick Rethus. Thanks to Major Sponsor JG Marine, Tackle World, Barra Pro and Northside tackle.
