Ep 58 – Jack Hocking: Fishing Lake Mulwala and Starting a Fishing Guide Business
Ep 58 - Overview
Many of you will already know who Jack Hocking is from our videos, Live Q&As and reports inside the SF Membership, but for those of you who don’t, all you need to know is that Jack can catch fish!
Jack Hocking owns and runs Lake Mulwala Sportfishing, based on the cod capital in Yarrawonga. He has been guiding for a little over a year and has been fishing since he could walk. Jack is an incredibly accomplished angler and has caught countless numbers of giant cod from Mulwala.
I’ve been lucky enough to spend plenty of time on the water fishing with Jack and have learnt that he has a unique and special gift for fishing. He thinks in a way that many others don’t, and he has a knack and a dedication to working out how these fish think. He is always looking for the next fish.
