Brooke Hanson from TV show Discover Downunder joins us aboard a Crestliner 1650 Super Hawk. Will any fish get caught?

One doesn’t visit Lake Fyans in Victoria’s beautiful Grampians without a trip on the water, so naturally Trade-a-boat teamed up with Brooke Hanson from TV show Discover Downunder to do this very thing.

Representing the team was Trade-a-Boat’s senior boat tester, John "Bear" Willis. Bear has fished all around the country, on almost every boat you can think of. You name it, he’s probably caught it. He’s done it so much, in fact, that he says he gets more enjoyment from watching other people catch fish.

Our video sees Bear take Brooke out to Lake Fyans to catch a trout or redfin. Their vessel of choice was a US boat, the American-made Crestliner 1650 Super Hawk tinnie. Powered by a brand new 115hp Mercury FourStroke, the 1650 Super Hawk is the smaller sibling to the Crestliner 1850 Fish Hawk WT that featured in our latest Australia’s Greatest Trailer Boats mega shootout (Aluminium Fishing Boats category).

Will Brooke catch a fish? Find out in our video.
