So there’s these three asians right and they decide to go rock fishing near Port Kembla below Hill 60 at a notorious rock platform called Honeycomb Rocks.
It’s Easter Good Friday and Nino Agaya (34) drives the three of them straight from Sydney’s ethnic Punchbowl down the coast. They rock up, no life jackets, walk out to the rock platform, bait up with won tons and cast out.
There is a decent swell and the rock platform where they are set up is well wet and its approaching high tide.
Anyway, it’s Nino Agaya’s secret spot and he’s fished there many times, no worries. Looks calm enough. Who needs life jacket. Free-spirit rock fishing best.
One asian says to another, “Hey, Wang Fang, that’s a big fish, see the black fin!”
The other asian replies, “No Nino, that shark.”
“Oh, what good bait for shark?”, asks Wang Fang.
“Not sure,” replies Nino.
The three get distracted by someone waving from the shore pointing.
Suddenly, the sea surges and few small waves splash around their feet. Then a big wave swamps them sweeping them into the sea two meters below – hook, line and sinker. Nino falls on to his friend, pushing him under the water and causing him to hit his leg on the rocks.
