[WA] Exmouth

Episode 7

Episode Synopsis

Rob visits Western Australia's Coral Coast which lays claim to the largest and most accessible fringing coral reef in the world; Ningaloo Reef and to some of the best Billfish fishing in the world. He teams up with ‘the Coral Coast Kid’ – pint sized 8 year old Hayden Michaels who has several national and state billfish tagging titles to his name.

Hayden's amazing eyesight and relentless enthusiasm for fishing results in an amazing capture. Back in the shallows gun female angler Jae Bruynzeel illustrates how to catch the tasty Spangled Emperor from her kayak but an imposter lays out one of Jae’s biggest piscatorial challenges yet.
