Guests from Germany – 27 February 2016
On the 27th February we had a early start to a days fishing with our group of 5 German guests. The morning silence was interrupted by laughing and loud accents. Moral was high and everyone was ready to get stuck into some tuna fishing.
On the run out we had one casualty of sea sickness. I turned to my deckhand saying he should expect more to follow… By the time we arrived in the tuna grounds we had four people down and one ready for a fish of a lifetime. We found a trawler working in the West and ran up to it and dropped our first bait…. ON DAD…. Hooking a nice Yellowfin of 65kg. Good achievement for our last man standing!
On our run home we came across a floating pallet with plenty Dorado, Yellowtail and Trigger fish under it. We made two passes on the troll hooking some Yellowtail but no Dorado. We stopped and baited for the Dorado but no luck, the fish wouldn’t eat. With a 65kg Yellowfin and two Yellowtail in the box our last man standing was smiling from ear to ear. “Job done” he said while sipping on his ice cold beer.
