We were very proud to be nominated for the ‘Business Coach’s’ Award at the 2012 National College of Business Awards Gala Dinner at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre during the month. We were shortlisted down to 6 out of 330 small businesses in Brisbane and the Gold Coast. It was a very inspiring evening. GO TEAM!

FV Fat Hooker’s New Engine

After much anticipation, FV Fat Hooker has a new ticker! We welcome you to come and say hello to our brand new Cummins Marine 6CTA Diesel Engine. It produces more power, cleaner emissions and has better fuel economy. Not to mention how quiet and smooth it is! Very impressive.

Fishing Update

November, as always, has been a mixed bag for fishing as we say goodbye to the winter fishing season and welcome the summer pelagic season. There are still a few snapper and pearlies out wide which have been caught on the full day trips. Not many fish were on the bottom towards the end of the month so we have been trolling for pelagics as they gradually make their way into closer grounds. We have been getting many black marlin hook-ups on the half day trips.

Catch of the Month!

Louise has been hassling her father, Arthur, to go deep sea fishing to catch some big fish. Arthur caught this wahoo on the day at the 24’s on Monday 26 November. Arthur and Louise win a free half day trip on Fat Hooker! Congratulations!
