holidays saw both Fat Girl and Nawty Girl busy, all kinds of trips and lots of
children. I love taking the younger ones fishing and to see the smiles and
excitement always makes my day. On the many backline trips we did well with
some good Shad and Mackerel being caught and on one trip we got into a school
of Sand Steenbras of which all were released. Another trip saw a Guitar Fish
being caught in the deep which we also released. Bottom fishing has been good
with some nice fish coming out. Bonnies have been present in large numbers with
many being caught on all trips and they provide great sport on light tackle.
The Yellowfin Tuna have still been missing to my frustration and my guess they
are around with the sardines. One on long trip we went down South and found a
pocket of sardines with Sharks, Sailfish and Marlin smashing them, we managed
to hook up a very large Black Marlin which is exciting for mid winter in July,
but sadly the hook snapped and we dropped it which always leaves me frustrated.
Early mornings have been very cold, but most days warmed up nicely and for most
trips the conditions have been calm, there have as always been those
frustrating trips when the fish are scarce or the weather forecast got it wrong
but overall July has been productive thus far.
June was not the
busiest month for us but we got out a good few times. The Yellowfin Tuna have
been absent other that a really good strike the other day we have seen no Tuna
action, the Bonnies have been around in big numbers and have provided great fun
on light tackle. Bottom fishing in general has been really good with some
really decent size fish coming out, Shark activity has been very high and we
have been taxed of a number of good fish over the month. Weather for most days
has been calm and stable but there have been a few days with some heavy winds.
With Sardine reported all along the South Coast I think all the Tuna have been
down that side. If the sardine run carries on the way it has been so far it
looks to make us a very promising Game Fish season this next summer.
