It was the perfect summer day for fishing off Yorke Peninsula. So 891 ABC Adelaide's fishing expert Greg James fired up the four-stroke and headed out off Tapley Shoals with 891's Matthew Abraham. They were looking for snapper. Did they hit pay dirt?

Greg's chats with Matt and his co-host David Bevan have become a popular part of the 891 morning program. In 2011, Matt and Dave will bring you the Breakfast program, 6am to 9am weekdays. And Greg will be part of the new brekkie line-up.
