We finally had a full weekend of great fishing and weather conditions.
We did a “Mega Day” – 11 hour fishing trip on Saturday. Not a trip we do often. It was great to see a lot of our regulars on board and after the mid week flare up of weather, it gave for some good fishing out wide.
A great variety of fish on board ranging from a nice big Tusky, Tea Leaf Travalley, Wrasse, Moses Perch, Banana Fish and a beautiful Clown Fish which obviously went back.
Poor Zoe nearly had a fit when a Crested Tern, that is a bird for all you fisho’s, got tangled in Tony’s fishing line. It was all hands on deck to save this poor little thing. Zoe nurtured him to recovery, mind you I think he was happy nestled into Zoe’s chest while recovering but soon after releasing him a Booby bird tried to attack him but that soon sent him off.
Our usual Dolphin visit is always a bonus.
Sunday was a small 5 hour fishing charter – lovely conditions out on the water with a lot of Happy Moments coming up, more than we’ve seen in a long time. A few (just) undersized Snapper were caught but a few of the passengers managed to hook a nice Grassy Sweet Lip and a good size Mowong. Slightly frustrating as it was clear from the sounder information that the area was solid with good sized fish under the boat!
It was nice to see some women on board and Julie hooked up a nice Trigger Fish
