A pint-sized fisherman will set a whopping new Australian game fish record after only three weeks of fishing competitively.
At 9-years-old Kai Ziebell, who only began fishing competitively this year, has potentially set a new Queensland and Australian record for catching the largest wahoo in the competition.
Kai’s father, Ian, said it was a great achievement considering he only started competitive fishing two weeks ago.
“He’s been getting involved in fishing competitions over the last two to three weeks. He won the Fitzroy Island, Cairns Bluewater competition in August, which was his first proper billfish competition,” Mr Ziebell said.
Kai won the Junior Champion for a boat under 7.5m category in the Fitzroy Island competition as well as Yorkeys Knob Sport Fishing Club’s Light Tackle competition….
