Brian and Janet joined us for an offshore tuna charter in preparation for the the tuna derby competition to be fished next week. Both anglers caught yellowfin tuna with Janet doing an excellent job tackling and boating her biggest fish to date! Well Done from Two Oceans Janet! Other ladies fishing the Tuna Derby had better bring their best as you have some tough opposition onboard Obsession!
John and his friends joined us for an offshore tuna fishing trip. We had rather a lumpy ride with Cape Town’s unpredictable weather doing its thing and what was supposed to be a 2 knot afternoon wind never came with the South Easter continuing to blow the whole day. Conditions were tough but we managed to boat a good yellowfin tuna.
Obsession catches first Yellowfin tuna of the Oct/Nov 2013 season!
Obsession maintained its record of again taking the first yellowfin tuna of the season! We went tight on our first yellowfin of the day at around 8:30am yesterday and had some awesome action on the jigging outfit that Cyril was using. Cyril is from Fishing Adventurer.com the fishing TV show and has been with fishing with us for the past few days. Now that the tuna has started arriving we are looking forward to some great action this season.longfin tuna, Yellowfin tuna
17 October Yellowtail and Bronze Whaler Shark
Cyril and his team from Fishing Adventurer, the tv series joined us for day one, some inshore action with the yellowtail and bronze whaler sharks. There was all-round activity the whole morning with the yellowtail not readily taking the lures, making for some tough fishing. However we did manage to find several still willing to take a spinner and then put some of the smaller tail and katonkel down for live bait for bronzies. We put down 4 live baits and had 4 sharks take the baits within minutes biggest about 2.7m long. So some great action, we were catching the shark on big barbless circle hooks making for an easy release without leaving the hook in the shark.
