Big fish hauled in at Lucky Bay
 
An anonymous Sea SA customer, waiting to board the ferry at Lucky Bay, was delighted to catch a sizeable snapper after casting a line from the breakwater to fill in time at the ferry terminal.
 
He was snapped in turn on camera, by Cine News Productions' photographer, Brian Grant, who was travelling with Sea SA to take photos for the Jayco website, www.peoplegoingplaces.com
 
According to Brian, the lucky angler couldn't believe his luck.  
 
"He'd been on holiday all week and had fished every day without catching anything like this... so he was amazed to catch a fish of this calibre, while he was just waiting to catch the ferry home," Brian explained.
 
"He'd only cast his line out off shore about 50 feet, before the rod started to bend so much that his brother-in-law had to help him pull it in!"
 
According to Lucky Bay locals, it's not uncommon for the big snapper to come in so close to shore, especially after blowy weather conditions stir up the bottom of the bay and create good feeding opportunities.
