Paul & Maurice
Paul joined us for his second trip out and Maurice shared the trip with him. We had beautiful weather with flat seas and after getting us into the right spot promptly hooked into the first yellowfin of the morning after about 5 minutes. We had a great run boating 5 yellowfin and loosing one.
We also had a professional team of cameramen onboard filming the action as we are busy filming a promo dvd soon to added to the website….. Can’t wait for this one….
Well done guys on a great catch. Again conditions were tough with very few fish coming out on the other boats and the 25 competion boats only catching 5 very small fish, and most guys catching nothing…. Just goes to show Capt. Dave knows a thing or two about catching yellowfin tuna, thats why he is known as the yellowfin specialist.
“A quick word of thanks for a fantastic day of fishing today – boating 5 yellowfin tuna certainly exceeded my expectations of the day. Anybody thinking of booking a trip with Two Oceans Sport Fishing should know that if the Yellowfin Tuna are out there, Capt Dave Christie will find them (when many other skippers don’t!) and that there can be no other skipper in South Africa with more dedication and enthusiasm for the sport! This has to be the best tuna fishing to be had anywhere!” Paul Cameron
Lucas and Friends
Lucas and his mates joined us again for some offshore tuna fishing. Lucas has an uncanny ability to book on good fishing days. We have caught excellent tuna with him on all of the 6 or so trips he has done with us. So the stage was set – no pressure Capt. Dave….
Although the weather was great the fishing was tough, so tough in fact that the 25 odd competition boats fishing the October comp for their club colours and provincial colours did not catch anything.
So the guys were happy that we managed to get them into two nice yellowfin both of which were brought to boat and Lucas managed to retain his pole position with the biggest fish.
Paul, Grant and Sven joined us for an offshore tuna fishing experience. The weather was a bit choppy to start but calmed down later on to beautiful weather. The tuna were not playing ball so much so that only two small yellowfin were caught amoungst the 30 odd boats that were out. Even so Capt. Dave managed to hook into a 73 kg fish which Sven fought and landed.
“Hi Dave, I just wanted to thank you again!!! You really made a dream come true, wanted to do this for over 4 years now!!!” Sven
81.6kg on jig !
We had one of the best weather days so far this season and got into the tuna early on in the morning so much so that by lunch time everyone was exhausted from pulling in yellowfin and we came back in. Gary decided to drop a jig down around mid morning and promptly had a yellowfin swallow it. As he did not have a harness on at the time he passed it on to me and I really put the pressure on this tuna to get it up to the boat. Check out the pic below. Capt Dave.
Great weather and insane action on the tuna set the scene for the day. We had a big school of huge yellows with us for about 3 hours providing great action, the biggest 92kgs!
The smiles say it all…..
Paul and family joined us for an Offshore big game tuna charter. Although a little bumpy in the morning the weather calmed down throughout the day and we had splendid flat seas on the way home. The fishing was slow in the morning but picked up later with some very big yellowfin tuna all over the 80 kg mark being the pick of the day. Congrats guys on your excellent catch. Capt. Dave
