Have fallen behind in my reports due to the awesome weather after the new year and some flat out fishing.Heres some of the action as posted on FB.  02 JanWhat a magic first day on the ocean for 2016 - flat calm and a light breeze. Pity the fishing was very slow but we managed a Spearfish release and cruised the ocean enjoying the awesome weather, a treat after what we have been through this season. Water was off colour in the main area so no blues in shallow but two Blues were raised by other boats in the deep but didnt stick. Reel Magic also released a Spear.A flag on the first outing of the year is always good!!    03 Jan Our first day on the ocean for 2016 was magic and the...

Well the weather has been amazing the last few days and it has been a pleasure being on the ocean after the carnage of the previous few weeks. The fishing has been a bit slower with the water up to 28 degrees now, but there are atill nice Blues around. Two nice blues in the 800 lb range coming out in the last 3 days!! We have raised a fish or two every day and there have been releases by other boats as well. Been unlucky not to stick the last two but we made up with a nice Spear for Dawie, his first and super chuffed with adding this rare catch to his CV. Happy new year everybody!!     ...

Really crappy charter weather day but what a great family. Had a full blown ICU unit going today with a nasty south sea and sea sickness the order of the morning yet not a whimper or a moan out of the girls in the family group. Errol you guys are awesome and it was such a pleasure to have you on board! Grand to catch James his first marlin after watching a spectacular show as this Black tried to eat a Dorado 20 meters in front of the boat and then hooked up after driving over its head. Sad that it got tail wrapped but it gave us a chance to chat and get to know you guys at the club. Awesome day and exactly why I love to do this....

Yesterday turned out to be a happy day for all on the water for the first time this season. All the boats out there raised and or landed fish for the first time this season - the game is in full swing now. We had a black up early on the ledge that did not stick then went tight on a 350lb Blue and stuck a very nice 80 kg Striped marlin later in the afternoon. Unfortunately no good pics of the fish boat side as they both pulled hooks at the boat, which was unfortunate but great as I had owner Neels on board leadering and he has just got out of hospital after having stents inserted in his heart. Awesome to see the colour back in him and smiling ear to ear. just glad he didnt have to put to much...

Snuck out early before the wind got to bad today and snagged a great Blue for the English boys. Simon's first marlin - 600lb is going to take some beating. Well done son for hanging in there for the 90 min fight. Had my hands full without a deckie today but the experience of doing this a few times before came in handy. Well done guys for lending a hand on the bill to get the hooks out and one for the fish for being kind and not misbehaving. Some good weather forecast for after Christmas so lets hope we get to do some fishing in calm seas. Merry Christmas all!!   ...
