Milan and Nathan are excited to test out their brand new boat and fishing gear in this first episode of Big Angry Fish season 6.
What better place to kick of a new season than the world famous Cape Runaway, a location that always serves up Big and Angry fish. The guys are both fishing hard, but as usual one has to hook the big one.

The first fishing trip this season was made possible with the brand new 701 Tristram Offshore with a beast of a 300HP Mercury Verado pushing the guys back in the seats.
Brave Design finished off the stunning boat and the Mazda BT50, the powerhouse from John Andrew Mazda that tows this rig with ease and comfort.
The Enduro trailer fitted with a Balex Automatic Boat Loader makes trailerboat fishing a simple task.
The Simrad NSS12 evo2 Chartplotter MFD found the fish in no time, and the new tools from Shimano did not disappoint: the big Stella sitting on a Shimano Ocea Plugger reel with a ton of lifting power and the Colt Sniper jigs nailed everything that lived on the reef.
Thanks to Oceanside apartments for the cozy beds and hot showers.
