Johnny’s ability to understand the underwater world and its fishy inhabitants coupled with years of experience learning how to coax them to bite make him the ultimate teacher
I’ve known Johnny for quite some time, we wander like nomads, whether on the water or in the bush searching to unearth new secrets. I have found myself learning off Johnny while he’s learning himself!
Being a keen fishermen all my life I thought I knew a lot about barra fishing, until I went on a charter with Johnny Mitchell.
Johnny Mitchell is a rare breed of fisherman. He is very humble, does not seek fishing fame even though in my opinion is one of the best all round fishermen in this country.
Johnny Mitchell has spent his whole life on the water observing and absorbing information. When fishing he has a focus on the bigger picture
Good fishermen know how to catch fish, great fishermen know how, when, where and why. It’s the subtle things that good fishermen miss that great fishermen see and know.
Over my years of knowing Johnny Mitchell I have benefited immensely from his decades of fishing experience, particularly the targeting of barramundi in tournament and personal conditions.
