Who is Stuart Hindson?

Grew up in Melbourne and started fishing when I was 5. Mainly targeted redfin and carp in the Yarra until the age of 12. Moved to Narooma at that age and starting working part-time at Ocean Hut fishing and dive centre in Narooma. At 14 began gamefishing and caught many monster yellowfin at Montague (when they were still around), the best at 105kg. Kingfish on jigs and trolling live frigate mackerel for marlin and yellowfin tuna were also favorites.

The game bug was well and truly set and l gained my coxswain's certificate so I could skipper a game boat at the age of 18. Skippered 2 boats, a 33ft shark cat then a 41 steber for 6-7yrs. Absolutely loved it and in this time if I wasn't fishing outside then the estuary was copping a flogging as well. Big flathead, bream and mulloway were the targets in the estuaries. LBG was also high on the list with Beecroft peninsula and the Mystery Bay rocks getting regular visits. At 26 I went and traveled alot chasing big fast fish. Spent a season at Cairns and Port Stephens, and went to Vanuatu for a look as well. Lucky enough to land a massive Black marlin estimated at 1100lb at Lizard Island before she was let go. That fish was a childhood dream that came true and took 6.5 hrs to land on 130lb chair tackle....
