Celebrity Fishing Interview - James Moffat - The best is yet to come

Exclusive FishMax Interview

As the son of legendary Australian motor sport hero, Alan Moffat, James Moffat grew up around cars, but he also loves to drop a line when ever he gets a chance.

James is the newest recruit to V8 Supercar team, Dick Johnson Racing / Jim Beam Racing.  As the only Rookie in the 2011 Championship, Moff will steer car #18 (the same car that won James Courtney the Championship in 2010). 

Unlike his team mates Dick and Steve Johnson, James is not a mad fisho, but he likes to get out and wet the line when he can. This week we put James Moffat on the bench and ask him about fishing.

FM: What’s your earliest fishing memory?

JM: I think I was around 8 or 9 when I went to a fishing farm – obviously had no trouble catching my first fish.

FM: Catch and release or take home to eat?

JM: Depends on the fish and of course whether it is legal size or not

FM: Where is your favourite fishing spot?

JM:Don’t really have a favourite fishing spot, as I don’t get to fish as regularly as I would like, but usually wherever you catch a lot of fish is a favourite at that time!!

FM: Your best fishing story?

JM: Still to come

FM: Favourite fish recipe?

A good salt and pepper calamari

FM: What’s the biggest fish you’ve caught?

JM: Caught a whole bunch of whiting one day – think the biggest was just under 50 cm

FM: How often do you go fishing?

JM: Maybe twice a year, if I'm lucky

FM: Where is the most exotic place you’ve been fishing?

JM: Still waiting to go fishing there!

FM: Do you have a fishing tip you’re willing to share?

JM: Not sure I am a good enough fisherman to be giving out tips!!!  But I'm willing to receive any if anyone has them!
