Floating kelp paddy – 18 March 2016
We decided to run West seeing that the North Westerly was coming in the afternoon. Arriving at the tuna grounds only to find the water brown and cold. While pushing out to find better water we came across a floating kelp paddy, so we stopped to throw some spinners. With the first cast we were tight with a Yellowtail. We then decided to stay and work the kelp paddy for the day, as we received reports of bad water and no Yellowfin Tuna on the 500 contour. Smashing the Yellowtail and a couple of Longfin around the kelp paddy our clients were very happy with the catch.
