FISHING REPORT - Durban - 13 September 2014 - Yellowfin Tuna Triple up

FISHING REPORT - Durban - 13 September 2014
We launched at 04h00 this morning and ran for about 1.5hrs, near Ballito we dropped lines and made our way out deep. The sea was awesome this morning, inshore was cold. On our way out to the deep we crossed over the Agulhas current, once we passed that the water started cleaning up nicely and warmed up to 22deg.C. We saw lots of bird activity, Prions, Pe...trels, Terns, Albatross, and another small species I am sure what it was. The was lots of whales from about 100m depth all the way out to the deep, we even saw whales at 600m depth. We passed a large school of pygmy dolphins. Near 600m depth I saw a lot of bird action and went to investigate, it was then that I saw the boils, we had 4 lines running and in the end we landed 4 x Yellowfin Tuna of about 40Kg each. By the time we landed these Tuna the wind had started to blow and so we ran with the wind for a several km's before heading back in. On the way back in we had to cross the Agulhas current again, but this time it was screaming making for a very bumpy passage. the 40km run back home was not so comfortable and we got back to the docks at 15h00.
