This was our last fishing trip for the season and boy it was hot. The weather was still and apart from the occasional storm passing we had mostly glass offs. Mark, Wayne, Jody, Alan and Hilton all from Perth definitely sweated and worked hard to tick the species off their lists, but that they did. By the end of the trip there had been some fantastic fish caught.
The shallow water trout and red bass fishing was a hit and a nice relief from throwing those large poppers and stick baits for GT’s. The Sailfish were a bit hard to find the first few days but once we did created some great action and good sized fish too to 35kg.
We caught a number of small Dogtooth Tuna both on jigs and whilst trolling. Hilton landed the biggest one estimated at around 40kg during a jig session. Mark landed the biggest Humphead Maori Wrasse which gave him a tough fight over the shallows whilst popper fishing the edge of the reef.
Wayne experienced the rush of a GT smashing your lure and then taking you for a ride, he managed to land a number of good fish and ticked quite a few new species off his bucket list. Alan was the quiet achiever, slowly pegging away a number of good fish without making any fuss and Jody well what can I say. I think we had Wonder Woman in disguise on the boat. I have never seen anyone work so hard and learn so much in such a short time. She never gave up and left the best till last finally landing a nice GT on the very last day, a well earned fish.
Great job everyone, some really nice fish caught in extreme conditions.
