Bucket list Trip – from Welshpool to Weipa

Purefishing corporation and their name brands of Penn, Abu Garcia, Ugly Stick, Berkley and Spiderwire offer tournament anglers a plethora of equipment to succeed on the stage. They also offer gear for every Australian fisherman whether they chase 1lb trout or 1000lb marlin.

In 2014 Lindsay Price from Welshpool Victoria won the Purefishing Bucket List Trip Competition. A trip for him and 2 mates to Princess Charlotte Bay. Cyclone Nathan blew that plan off the water…. A reschedule to this year and a relocation to Weipa saw the Lindsay and mates Andrew and Peter join Reel Chase Charters for their bucket list trip.

Fishing the creeks and rivers of Port Musgrave north of Weipa saw the guys tick barramundi off the list as well as juvenile Queensland grouper. But it was the inshore reef action that saw the intrepid trio from rural Victoria really start ticking the species off their bucket list. Nannygai, fingermark, cobia, coral trout, golden trevally, big cod, spanish mackerel, the species list that came over the side was like the contents of Grants Guide to Fishes. A final count of 17 different species gives an idea of the frantic action on board Reel Chase Charters.

Proudly sponsored by Penn, Abu Garcia, Ugly Stik and Spiderwire. The Bucket List Trip would like to thank Reel Chase Charters for looking after Lindsay, Andrew and Peter and giving them a trip to remember.
