Marlin (Striped)

Tuna (Yellowfin)
Dolphin (Mahi Mahi)

Yesterday wasn’t the very best of days to go fishing but we were committed. As so often happens when the ocean is less friendly the bite, especially for Yellowfin can be good.

Ours was a story of good and bad luck.

Because of the conditions and with a group of newbies on board it wasn’t long before half of them were sea sick but to their credit they persevered. Their cure came when the first Marlin, a good sized Stripy pounced on the short corner then the rigger and finally the shotgun managing to miss all the hooks. On inspection all the leaders were scuffed a long way up from the lures, must have been a myopic Marlin.

Listening to the radio scheds from the ‘Port Hacking 100’ tournament it was evident there were quite a few Yellowfin around, varying from so called ‘Jelly beans’ up to 40 kilo’s jobs.

We ended up catching a couple of Yellowfin and losing another when the tag line tangled up with the main line. Later on another Marlin hit the shotgun but again missed the hooks.

The results from the week-end tournament indicated the number and range of fish still out there. ‘Carnage’ weighed a Tiger Shark of 470.5 kilos. There were also Mako’s and at least one Whaler and a Hammerhead weighed. ‘Game Changer’ caught a Blue Marlin of 138 kilo’s for junior Makaira Wright. There were several Yellowfin and Striped Marlin tagged. The biggest surprise to me was of a Wahoo being taken.

It is turning into a very late season with the warm currents still within range and with the range of warm water species still out there long may it continue.
Tight lines,
