Riaan Manser on Board Big Catch – 27 October 2016

img_0418 img_0412  img_0404

We took Riaan Manser and friends out for a day of offshore tuna fishing this week and it turned into a very special day for Big Catch.

Everyone on board had a chance to do the tuna dance, with everyone catching their personal best yellowfin tuna. I then got hooked on a monster of a fish, with the Tiagra 80w screaming, I knew I was in for the fight of my life. We landed the 121.75kg Big eye tuna, a personal best. With smiles all around, we returned home after a epic day of fishing.

We had a fun day out with Martin and friends on Saturday.

There was a North Westerly wind blowing in the morning and a South Easterly wind forecast for the afternoon, but still a nice day and the fishing did not disappoint.

After finding a shoal of Longfin Tuna all the clients had a chance at the rod! We headed back to the harbour with smiles all around.

Big Catch Team – 9th October 2016

  img_0185 img_0214

On Sunday Team Big Catch headed to the deep for some offshore fishing and tackle testing. The day started with some yellowtail fishing on bait and light tackle spinning gear. Although weather conditions were good the yellowfin tuna were few and far between but never the less perseverance and experience paid off  and later in the day we connected with some Yellowfin Tuna. Every one had a great time and we  are looking forward to the next trip out.  For tips and advice on tuna fishing pop into Big Catch and speak to the team.

On Saturday 8th October we were joined by Johannes and his family.

The day started out tough due to wind. We managed to hook up on a Yellowfin Tuna and after a 35 min fight Johannes landed his personal best fish.

Matt joined us on Tuesday accompanied by his family. We had some success hooking Matt up with the fight of his life. We cut the day short, heading back to shore early, but still a successful day in the deep.

We set out for our first Offshore Tuna charter for the season on Monday morning. We started out in the South, but because of rough waters we changed direction. With some  Longfin and Yellowfin Tuna being caught for the day, the clients were pleased with everyone catching their personal best. What a fun start to this season.
