This is how to catch Australian Salmon while rock fishing. I have never caught an Australian salmon in my life. But there is a cool guy, Jack Jacobs, a very keen fisherman from Australia, was shark fishing at the time but.. but then this happened; see the video (insane salmon action) Aren't they so lucky? A beautiful sunny day, gorgeous rocky shore, thousands of salmons swimming within feet of the rock..what a sight! what a joy!
