Ready for the party!

Unfortunately it was a quiet day on the water for everyone yesterday including ourselves as we fished Head Hunter back to Merimbula from Bermagui, don’t worry though – it’s looking really really good out there with bait stacked up the whole way down on the inside of the shelf with crystal blue water & 20deg water it’s only a matter of time before the marlin turn up for the party!

Fishing out wide of late has been challenging due to the recent weather but for those who have braved the elements it has been rewarding with a few nice yellowfin tuna up to 40kg making an appearance from time to time along with some nice albacore also, the majority of these fish have been taken in skirted lures in the 6-10” range and on the ever reliable halco hard-bodys. As the weather improves I’d expect to see plenty more yellowfin caught and there’s a fairly good chance of an early season striped marlin!

The bait is starting to appear just inside the shelf and it’s starting to look really good for the upcoming marlin season, there has already been a couple seen and lost! We are all hoping for a great follow up from last years excellent marlin season, the game fishing here on the sapphire coast is unique and many of us don’t realise how lucky we are to have such a great fishery straight out the front of home. People travel far and wide to experience the great fishing we have here so don’t be afraid of getting out there and giving it ago!

In other news we are onto a few exciting new toys, Jason from Colorato Lures has sent me some new weapons for the season and I tell you what they look fantastic in and out of the water! It’s refreshing to see a lure that is genuinely different to the rest in looks, shape & design rather than the usual “they all look the same” approach. You can check them out Here. With plenty of smoke & bubbles and an awesome action these guys are going to be the goods!

Onboard Head Hunter we have had a spectacular year, tagging 47 striped marlin over the season along with a few days of 4 & 5 fish and releasing over 35 southern bluefin tuna in 3 days and I’m expecting to far exceed that this year!
