Family Day – 28 March 2016
Beckie and family joined us on Family Day. Running out to the West after some bad weather we didn’t know what to expect. We arrived in the tuna grounds to find the water very green but temp was right so we decided to put troll lines in.
Shortly after we had some strikes of longfin. We continued trolling and hooked a yellowfin on the bird but unfortunately the hook pulled and we lost the fish. Pushing out further looking for blue water we found some yellowtail on the colour change. Fishing was quite slow in the West, working that colour change we hooked another yellowfin on the helco clipping Beckie into the fish she fought the fish like a boss, got the fish up 2m under the boat but unfortunately the fish ran towards the motors and wrapped around the prop snapping the 80lb mono. Fish gone…… Needless to say clients were still happy with the catch.
