Went over to Australia again this year for my annual fishing trip
As usual we are targeting the Tuna school that migrated through this island each year at this time.
We couldn't meet up with them last year, the water last year was apparently 2 deg c warmer than this year
But we were very lucky to meet up with them this year
Large bait ball boiling was comment sight at 1st light and tuna and wahoo were plentiful
Fishes from 30 -120kg mostly but few were able to be landed. Shark was never far from a hooked tuna
I had tuna over 80kg that stripped 250m of PE6 in 30 sec and eventually taken by shark the moment it stopped running.
Another tuna over 50kg that came in so close to shore and took my 50g stick bait on a PE3 set up send our adrenalin
We had also a 100kg strip marlin on stick bait, unfortunately it was taken again by shark the moment it stopped running
Technically 90% of fishes were gone due to this so call "tax man"
Our video show at least 3 sharks were tailing the hooked marlin but fortunately it was little large for the shark to make a go for it
And therefore, we were lucky enough to land this over 200kg blue on a stick bait at the end!
That makes up our entire journey
