The past weeks weather has been a little ordinary, but we were still out and about squeezing in charters Monday, Wednesday, Friday and the weekend. Fishing went well, especially the full day trips Friday and Sunday. Wednesday and Saturday’s half day trips were spent on murphy’s reef and the gneerings’ catching species such as squire, sweetlip, tuskfish, maori cod and moses perch. The full days were on the barwon banks where the fishing has been going off! The biggest fish was caught on Friday a black marlin caught trolling skirted lures, we didn’t bring it on board it was released at the side of the boat, at a guess it might have weighed 60kg – we will upload some footage to our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/TOP-Catch-Charters/340047046026078?ref=hlin the next few days if you want to have a look. One of the punters’ captured this shot of it in mid air near the boat.
We also caught plenty of red throat, tusk fish, rosy job fish, wahoo, mahi mahi, moses perch, tuna, gold spot wrasse and lots of spanish mackerel. This is a shot from Sunday’s trip where everyone was enjoying the sound of fish pulling drag and line off the reels from the floating pilly’s and lures.
The Australia day long weekend is fast approaching and with the approaching new moon phase the fishing should be on the bite, we have spots left for a half day Saturday morning and the full day on Sunday. They are filling fast so if you would like to join in on the action head to our contacts page to get in touch, until then Happy Hunting!!!!!!!!
