Mako Travellers Update 1 - Mako Angler Hits The Road

Story by Dominic Wiseman

At the end of April, Mako sponsored angler Dave Shelton and family (wife and two girls; 6 and 4) will be hitting the road for a 6 month trip around Australia. Their plan is to leave Sydney and leg it straight to Cairns. May will be spent in the Gulf and Arnhem Land, June around Darwin, July and August mooching their way across the Kimberly, September on the WA coast and October in the south west of WA, before heading home to Sydney, hopefully a whole lot of fish later.
They will be towing their recognisable new SeaJay 6m Freedom, which is the first SeaJay Freedom to be fitted with Yamaha's 175hp four stroke. Dave has mostly been a southern freshwater angler, so this boat, and it's capability, represents a bit of a change of direction, but will suit the trip perfectly.
Dave is looking forward to trying the G3H6 lenses for some sight fishing up north, and his G0H5 sunnies in a white frame will be perfect for the blue water. Dave plans to send us a few updates on his travels, and says "If you see us out there, come and say G'day."
