Chicks can fish too

harmony henke with another mangrove Jack

I AM a regular at Maroochy River fishing with the boys on our tinny, about 4 out the 7 nights I'm there.

Last week there were 2 men on there boat laughing and making fun of my fishing techniques all night , they belittled me for being a female fishing and thought they were just it.

After 3 hours of putting up with there sexist remarks I got a massive bite on my line and fought to bring in this beautiful and big mangrove Jack.

These 2 men went silent in utter astonishment to there surprise that the Sheila they made fun of all night actually caught a huge jack compared to there nothing.

There faces were priceless and all they could say was sorry and left with haste, needless to say I was proud as punch.
