Trap & Line Fisher
Danny is one of our youngest fishermen.
He moved to the Coffs Coast in 1987 with his parents at age 2. Danny grew up on the Coffs Coast and was always in and around the water surfing, fishing and snorkelling. In high school he did work experience with Ron Stewart on a trap and line boat. After that Danny started his first paid commercial fishing job was on the Hazel K with Russel Kerr and Micheal Burnes (Director) in 2006. After working on the Prawn Trawler for a few year he finally moved on to a trap and line boat with Danny Stewart. He was seasick every day for two weeks straight. Danny Stewart was a fantastic mentor and teacher for Danny, teaching him a lot about commercial fishing. Danny and his fiance Mel bought their first boat, the Lematt, in 2016 to start their own commercial fishing adventure.

Fun Fact: The boys are standing in front of Danny Stewart’s father’s boat, the ‘Lematt’, that Danny Green bought off him in 2016.
A good array of locally caught wet fish and a superb take away with outside covered seating. Was recommended to us as the best fish and chips in town and we would agree.
Our family of 4 tucked into one of the better fish n chips we have had for a long time. Nice crisp batter (not soggy, oily, or smoothed). We had a selection trawler whiting, flake, calamari, sea scallops, potato scallops, and chips all beautifully cooked, and with great taste of the seafood
My wife and I ordered grilled swordfish. It took some time until it was done, but then we each got a nicely grilled piece about the size of a T Bone steak. Our daughter liked the salad. It might not be the place for a formal dinner but if you are hungry for fish at a reasonable price it’s certainly worth going there.
Best fish & chips we ever had. The Dinner Pack was just huge for two, but you just can’t stop eating! Lovely and crisp chips, and the fish was exceptional. Only draw-back was the very small decking outside, which was too crowded and hard to find a vacant table. Unless of course you take your fish & chips and eat them somewhere else. Everything was as fresh as seafood should be. Straight off the boat! Next time we’ll try the mixed seafood.
