Monster fish the 'catch of a lifetime'
ONE Rockhampton butcher and keen fisherman has reeled in the catch of a lifetime.
Fishing off the rocks at Double Head in Yeppoon, Jerry Lagahit wasn't expecting to reel in the 'monster' sized fish.
Expecting a couple of bites that day, Mr Lagahit was shocked when he pulled in a 170cm Spanish mackerel onto the rocks.
Posting of Facebook about the catch, Mr Lagahit said the fish was the "greatest catch of my life."
Talking about landing the fish in, Mr Lagahit said the fish was "very hard to pull, drained all my muscles, when it was out of the water I didn't expect to pull in a monster."
