With our marlin season all but over its time for a change in venue so I will be off to a new adventure in Morrocco to fish for Blues and especially White marlin in the white marlin hotspot of the world. Have no idea what Im in for, but so looking forward to the challenges of a new area and a new fishery to explore. Will be there from May to October which is great as it allows me to return for our season at the end of the year. Have a look at the page on Morocco if you fancy ticking the white marlin off your bucket list. Drop me a mail and we will help you add a white or two to your CV. ...

Yesterdays fishing had its moments... Started as a windless day that lasted about a half hour before the NE got into its stride. Just when we got into the area we had a mystery ailment on the starboard motor going into limp mode for no reason. While battling to find the fault and on auto on one motor limping into the wind, a blue decided to pay us a visit. Safe to say that the hook up was rather brief at 2-3 knots with no steering. After a drought in the comp I had an instant sense of humour failure. 30 minutes later after giving up on the problem to return to port the ailment disappeared and all went back to normal. - Murphy can be a complete asshole at times... Decided to hang in ther...

Sorry no recent reports from myself as I picked up a surfing injury damaging my ACL ligaments in my knee while on a break from the fishing. Would have returned to the bay this past weekend but missed the fishing as a result of scans needed. Good news was that there was some good action on Friday and Saturday with a 500 released on Friday by Madness and then on Saturday Reel Magic dropped a good blue and Madness released another smaller blue. Will only get back early next week and get back into the action.   ...

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...
