FISHING REPORT: 10/07/2014 DURBAN - WOW, WOW,WOW. DOUBLE SAILFISH HOOK UP

FISHING REPORT: 10/07/2014 DURBAN - WOW, WOW,WOW. DOUBLE SAILFISH HOOK UP
We had an awesome day out on the water today. Weather was not so great with a SW wind pumping and uncomfortable swells, the water was also very cold. We launched at 06h30 for a 5hr charter and made a stop not to far from the harbour entrance to release a rehabilitated Cape Cormorant, this is always a great experience. Then w...e went out looking for Yellowfin Tuna. The Tuna were on the bite and it was not long before we had for nice Yellowfin Tuna in the hatch. The wind had picked up and the swells were not looking so great and I sat with a decision to go deeper with bigger swells or go close in with smaller swells, I new deeper would be more uncomfortable but I also new the fish were more active deeper out than inshore. I set the GPS for some deeper marks and we made our way out to deeper waters. We were almost on the marks when 2 reels started screaming and I though we had 2 large Tuna on, after a while we realised that we had a DOUBLE SAILFISH hook up and landed both. The Sailfish had both taken Rapala's. The smaller one was around 40Kg and was landed by a 12yr old boy who gave it everything he had, the larger one was landed by his father and took a while longer and was around 50Kg. Both Sailfish were released.
