Sn6 Ep8: Far North Skutes

Milan and Nathan are fishing in Big Snapper country, but who catches the biggest one?

Fishing shouldn’t be a competition, but when Milan and Nathan goes snapper fishing, it tends to end up this way! The boys are fishing in Big Snapper country and one big snapper after the other strikes Nathan’s homemade lures, but who will nail the winning fish of the day?

Nathan’s Skutes



The 701 Tristram plows through the wind-chop and it’s the comfiest ride on the planet. The hull just eats up swell and windchop like it was a gourmet dinner. The weather often picks up during the day, but this impressive hull always takes the guys home in style.

The Simrad evo2 sounder spots the fish and gives you an exact idea of what’s underneath.

Your chance of survival is much higher if you can call for help. Milan and Nathan always have a distress beacon and cellphones in drybags at all times while on the water.
