Milan and Nathan have taken their big boat all the way to North Cape to see if the big fish are around. The berley trail is laid out in the early morning hours and some big snapper just can't resist to take part in the action. As the sun sets high and the tide slows down, Milan and Nathan head out deeper to nail some size XL kingfish.

Endurant batteries power the Tristram fishing machine and Milan and Nathan have never been low on power. The Tristram launches and retrieves perfect every time with help from the Enduro trailer. Enduro built a strong and long lasting trailer and no compromises have been taken in the process.
Milan and Nathan would never be without a Balex system again, it makes launching and retrieving simple and safe.
The Simrad NSS12 evo2 Chartplotter MFD locates the fish, and Top Catch supplies all the fishing gear.
Stay safe on the water – always wear your lifejacket and carry two ways you can call for help, such as a PLB or Epirb distress beacon or VHF marine radio.
