Warren "Wazza" Kingsley still smiles when he thinks about the monster fish he recently caught.
Wazza recently caught a mammoth eight kilogram dusky flathead.
The huge flathead was weighed and released in Burrill Lake.
Wazza's catch shows we still have a healthy lake system where you can catch a good fish.
He used a diving lure and was using a plastic lure earlier on without any success .
With so many fishing options like beach, rock, lake, estuary, fresh water and deep sea, not to forget spear fishing, Wazza and other keen anglers are sure the be joined by many other fishos during the upcoming holiday season.
Meanwhile, local anglers and boat users have been encouraged to ensure they're ready for the summer.
Marine Rescue NSW Commissioner Stacey Tannos and Deputy Commissioner Alex Barrell recently joined Police and Emergency Services Minister David Elliott and other senior members of the emergency services to deliver important summer safety advice to the community.
Volunteers from Marine Rescue Port Jackson and Marine Rescue Middle Harbour also attended on board rescue vessels Port Jackson 20 and Middle Harbour 30.
Mr Elliott urged boaters to Log On and Log Off with MRNSW when heading out on the water and to ensure everyone on board was wearing a lifejacket.
