Celebrity Fishing Interview - No looking back for Nick Carle

Carle Catches Marlin
Exclusive Fishmax Interview

A-leaguer Nick Carle, came to a lot of people's attention when he won the Johnny Warren Medal in 2007 while at Newcastle, but there is no looking back for the attacking midfielder who has overcome his injuries of last year to help Sydney FC climb the rankings this season.

A keen fishermen since his youth, 30-year-old Carle took a few minutes to speak to Fishmax about his other passion, fishing.

FM: What’s your earliest fishing memory?
My earliest fishing memory is fishing as a kid when I was on holidays at The Entrance

FM: Where is your favourite fishing spot?
Jervis Bay is my favourite fishing spot when I am fishing with my brother in law but I love heading up to The Entrance with my kids.

FM: Your best fishing story?
I caught an 80kg Striped Marlin when I was fishing off Jervis Bay few years ago. It took me 90 minutes to land it and it is now mounted on the wall in my garage at home.

FM: Favourite fish recipe (either describe the dish or give the recipe if you prefer)?
My Mother in law cooks an awesome salt and pepper squid if we come home with some squid from fishing.

Carle is an enormous asset for Sydney FC
FM: What’s the biggest fish you’ve caught?
That would easily be the 80kg Marlin

FM: How often do you go fishing?
I go fishing probably 6 or 7 seven times a year as I am pretty busy with training, playing and promotional commitments at Sydney FC.

FM: Where is the most exotic place you’ve been fishing?
I went fishing off the reef near Port Douglass when I was on holidays a few years ago.

FM: Do you have a fishing tip you’re willing to share?
I am far from a professional fisherman and the only tip I can give people is make sure you look behind you before casting out. That can hurt!
