Well hello to all those who keep checking if I am back with my blog. To be honest I have had some family issues and spending as much of my time as possible with them, over the school holidays. Let me get you tuned in.
My Giant black marlin season was a beauty, we caught 5 over 1000lb, two in one day, and 0ne that I called over 1100lb on a lure, the tally showed a total of 14 over 800lb and in the mid 60’s for total fish caught. Some very happy clients.
Had serious Camera problems as it got wet, but will improve next year with new camera and 2.8 70 200 lens.
I am back fishing on the Gold Coast with viking 11 and so far the season here has excellent, good numbers of Black marlin are showing up averaging 40kg but the odd fish around 130kg are also jumping on, giving the guys fishing 8 kg a bit of a run for there money. The Blue marlin fishing is a little patchy, but still worth a run out to the wider grounds for a crack at a nice one.
I will be fishing 2 destinations this southern season, Port Stephens and the Gold Coast, Keeping the Viking on the coast and using the INYADREAMS at Port Stephens, have plenty of good time available so hope we can see you on board.
I have just returned from Port Stephens after doing a 3 day review on the new 55 ft Assegai Askari. What a boat, read all about it in a future issue of Bluewater magazine. The even forced me on a rod to Catch a Black Marlin, Rare in deed.
Ok that a quick catch up. they will now be more often, but family always comes first.
