Shipwreck mystery

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:24 pm on 9 October 2013

A Taieri Mouth fisherman hauled in a mysterious and unexpected catch off the coast of the Otago Coast this week. On a windy night, about 300 metres offshore from The Nuggets the skipper of Lady Ann, Karl Maley and his deckhand pulled in a 250 kilo barnacle encrusted iron anchor. Maley's been fishing these waters for 21 years and he has never seen anything like it.
