Steven Neely of Rookie Bass Angler set off for the Copper Coast in somewhat unsuitable fishing weather, but with determination and a longing to fish, he knew one way or another, he’d succeed !

Flat seas, bright blue skies and dirty water was what he met, so his fishing companion and he set about exploring and eventually found the perfect Bass mark – weed beds, rocky gullies and white water. Soon a Bass was theirs.  As Steven says “It was an awesome feeling to know that these fish were all down to our own hard work. No one told us about the mark, we used our heads and logic and made it happen. A great start and always a great buzz to fish marks which I am sure few people have ever stepped foot on.”

Fishing mate Kenny landed a lovely Pollack which gave up only after a good fight.
