Excellent fish Steig. There is one thing for sure. At Karumba Point we still catch a lot of big fish and the best place to stay in Karumba is Karumba Point Sunset Caravan Park and yes you can catch a fish just like Steigs right off the beach right in front of the park. Then celebrate just up the road at the pub. This fish was caught on the 4TH of May by Owen Von Stieglitz while fishing off the KERRY D. The fish is 960cm long and weighs 15 kgs .Best days ever had to date again thank for your hospitality. See you next trip Stieg.Read more ›
