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.

Service at the Co-Op is friendly and helpful and the fish is MAGNIFICENTLY FRESH. If you have a special occasion coming up, the cooked lobster is absolutely delicious.
This was fish and chips done to perfection. Thick crunchy fish cocktails, calamari rings, prawn cutlets and chips were all fantastic.
Heaps of choice of fresh fish to cook at home. We got the $35 family basket – nice variety, plenty to eat, fast service, great taste. A good way to end a day out in the town before heading home again.
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.
