Dillon is 13 years old and has Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. He loves fishing, hunting, soccer, hockey, lollies and playing the guitar, and his one true wish was to go fishing with Big Angry Fish! Make-A-Wish New Zealand got hold of us, and plans were made.
The weather was playing tricks on us, but we finally found a short but sweet weather window where the morning drizzle cleared just as we got the bait in the water.
We had a great day out on the water with Dillon and his family. The fishing was hard due to the full moon, so we decided to concentrate on getting something BIG! Dillon hooked his massive bronze whaler shark and played it for about an hour until we managed to get it under control and land it on the beach. Very big fish, maybe 180 kilos, and a very big effort from Dillon. Good work!
