20 Sep – Scott Reef

20 September 2018

For our third trip this year to Scott Reef we were joined again by our friends from Singapore. These guys love fishing in Australia, Beng, Wing and Toke the regulars this time bought along with them Chak (who turned out to be an excellent Chef) and Rodney.

We started off with a bang, we arrived and dropped the dinghies off and literally just put the lures in the water when we hooked up to a nice size Yellowfin Tuna. As tuna was high on the list for consumption it was quickly bled and put into the ice slurry to chill.

The next morning we hit the shallows in the dinghies chasing trout and other reef species, these guys love targeting the trout or as Toke loves to say ‘Pass-e-onnn”. This type of fishing continued throughout the trip with a good variety of species, nearly 300 trout were caught, along with the massive variety of others including bluefin, Tiger Trout, red bass, GT, Cod, Maori Sea Perch, Humphead (Napolean Wrasse) and countless others.

Sailfish provided some excitement with a number of multiple hook ups while more Yellowfin and Wahoo were also caught on the troll. The Dogtooth turned up on the last 2 days with the first fish landed being a cracker for Rodney (a very happy man) who up until then had thought they didn’t exist. All in all we hope it was a week to remember!
