I started the love of recreational fishing with my father, catching salmon at North Mole, Fremantle Harbour. That continued in northwestern Australia based in Broome, Cape Leveque and La Grange Bay. Most of my fishing was done every day on the island of Aitutaki in the Cook Islands. There I started our spear-fishing, diving off my yachts to feed tourists but soon learned that trolling a plastic squid with a double stainless steel hook was better both inside the lagoon and out in the Pacific Ocean. As a founding member of the Aitutaki Game Fishing Club, I'd compete in contests but prefer silent, deadly sail trolling than my game fishing boat. At times I'd be covered in tuna blood after trolling under the birds where the noisy boats didn't do well. So many fishing adventures to tell. Like being towed around the ocean by a shark, or surfing a wave to the barrier reef, jumping off the bow of my Hobie Cat and dragging it, mahi-mahi and a tourist to inside safety of the lagoon as a storm approached were some of my fishing adventures. Despite owning the largest game fishing boat on the island, I preferred sail trolling from my catamarans. I caught the first IGFA world record fish in the Cook Islands, standing on the reef, casting a lure I'd bought in Perth, with a strong breeze.

Nowadays I love kayak fishing or going deep sea fishing with Mills' Perth deep sea fishing charters. They take good care of all Perth fishers starting with a cook breakfast at their Hillarys Boat Harbour base before departure with their big, safe deep sea fishing charter boat.

I love Indian Ocean fishing in Perth on sunny calm Autumn days when I'm not working as a digital marketer. I've reviewed a few charter boat companies in Perth WA and conclude that Mills Charters' deep sea fishing charter boat company have the best boat, best crew and best hospitality. It's a reason why they've won so many tourism awards.
