Skeeter Boat: I have owned a Skeeter SX 170 for the last 3 years and am currently awaiting the arrival of my new ZX190 with PowerPole, 175hp Mercury Optimax .

 

I am 36 years of age and from Colac in Victoria where I have worked in the family business of fishing tackle and farm supplies. I have been fishing my whole life chasing everything from Trout to Marlin. I did previously work for 3 years on a gamefishing boat out of Bermagui NSW where we were chasing Marlin and Tuna.

 

In the last 6 years I have become addicted to Bream on lures and tournament fishing.

 

My best captures to date include:

- 183kg Mako Shark

- 95kg Bluefin Tuna,

- 143kg Blue Marlin

- 43cm fork Black Bream

- 40cm fork Yellowfin Bream

 

I have had pretty good success in my tournament fishing experience with results including:

 

2006
5th Vic Bream Classic - Glenelg River

 

2007

4th Vic Bream Classic Grand Final - Glenelg River

I believe Skeeter Boats are the best because of their great handling, stablity, finish and a proven track record. I loved the one I have had for over 3 years so much that I had no choice but to upgrade to another one.
