S8E9 Channel Island

Milan is hunting his favourite species of fish at the Coromandel North Coast, and he gets plenty of bend in his rod.


With the new Mercury 300HP V8 on the 701 Tristram Marine Offshore, Milan is heading out on an overnight adventure in order to harvest the livebait before daybreak.

As the sun rises, Milan is at Channel Island where all signs are saying that the big and angry ones should be around.
