Trap & Line Fisher – Lematt
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 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.
