Iron chef on the reef 28th November 2010

Very sorry for no blog update yesterday but we have not seen a fish for two days, just lot’s of bycatch.  Needless to say, the disco on the Viking was THE place to be with moi as the DJ spinning all the party favs.

Iron Chef Billy has been producing some amazing meals in the Viking Stadium, last night was a seafood feast starting with red emperor in tempura batter, closely followed by coral trout in a white wine and mango sauce, then, with all patrons satisfied, the job fish went out the window!

Previously, Billy’s Bistro has seen us eating rack of lamb, rib eye steaks and chicken pasta while the Deckies Deli has been producing some delightful lunches with BLT’s and roast beef and camberbert wraps to name a couple.

The bar has been keeping the drinks icy with liquor serving laws being abandoned – last drinks are when the Client says so or when she’s gone over the side – guess what’s first!!!

After a noice cooked breaky we’ll be heading out again to try and find the big girls, or any Mmmmm would be good – but please, no more Mahi Mahi.

Hopefully next report will be reporting fish – till then.

My Client has taken over. 26/11/2010

For all of Billy’s fans out there who are getting a bit tired of checking the blog and finding it NOT updated (like me!!) this is for you!

Bill finished an 8 day charter with Phil, Matt, Tony and Mick and the boys all caught fish for a total of 6 for the trip.  Phil had one hit the mark and after much debate, Tony’s Blue was approx 550-600.  I know the guys had a great time with many memories made.

We started a 7 day charter and the weather gods haven’t been too kind.  Day 1, no cigar (a nice 22kg yellowfin doesn’t count!!) but day 2 provided some joy with Steve catching  a 550-600 Black with two other bites not sticking.

More updates tomorrow – I promise!

Finish of a great trip.

Hi folks

Just finished my seven day charter with Americans Terry, Doug, and Ron 11 fish for the trip including a 750 800 850 900 and a 1100 pound plus,  One to remember.  The season had a little late start proper, this year but from all reports  it is well and truly underway with many boats enjoying great fishing, and now the weather is great their is no better place to be.
