Three Anglers to Tame a Monster – 15 April 2016
On Friday Bennie and his mates joined us for some offshore Tuna action. We ran South to the long liner, arriving at the long liner the water was perfect colour and the temperature, but no Yellowfin in site. I decided to run more West where we found the tuna pole fleet in the West. Trolling for 10min around the pole boats we found the Yellowfin marking at 35meters so we decided to chum.
When my deckie Robin threw the first hand full of chum the fish immediately came up for the bait but was very cautious on taking the hook. We eventually managed to hook a nice fish of 89kg which all 3 anglers had a go at. 3 hours later and 3 anglers down we managed to land our stubborn 89kg yellowfin. A stunning fish to end a Awesome day.
