Fathers and Sons Fishing.
Offshore Fishing Report – 25 June 2019
We had 2 families on the boat for a short morning charter. Water is very cold and under 20deg.C and we had a screaming reverse current. The cold water is a good sign for those awaiting the arrival of the sardines as usually when it drops under 20deg.C it means they are on their way.
We struggled to get our baits down in the screaming current and we only got one drop on the mark and had to continuously reposition after every drop to stay on point. We managed to get about 20 nice bottom fish that we could keep including a few Slinger but mostly Soldiers were feeding, we got a few nice sized ones and many undersize fish which we put back and to make sure they survived we brought them up slowly so they would go back down and not float. We also managed 1 Bonnie on the troll. A frustrating day indeed, especially after so many great trips in the past 6 weeks.
Fishing trips for Fathers and Sons are great for bonding and connecting.

Family Fishing Trip.
Offshore Fishing Report – 30 June 2019
We had 3 families on Fat Girl for a short morning charter. Conditions were stunning with light winds, flat seas and a slow current. No Bonnies or Tuna around yet, guess they are hanging around the sardines at the moment. Bottom fishing was great with a lot of fish caught by some very enthusiastic young men. A wide variety of species too, Slinger, Soldiers, Englishmen, Bronze Bream, Stumpy, Black Tail, Sea Barbel and even some Mackerel. We also got a large Toby that puffed up the size of a soccer ball and a very large Lion Fish which was an extremely interesting catch. Loads of fun with fathers and sons having a blast. The sons definitely out fished the dads on this trip.

A Good King Fish.
Offshore Fishing Report – 6 August 2019
Winter Fishing has been carrying on and we have done a fair amount of kiddies trips too. Over the weekend I saw the first Yellow Billed Kite and so we are expecting the Tuna to appear soon and before long we will be back into Game Fish season. Water was very cold averaging at 19.3 deg.C and we had some good catches of Bonito and Sarda Sarda, bottom fishing was tough with a very strong S-N current. This was a trip to remember as about 2 hours into our trip we hooked up into a very nice size King Fish on tight tackle which gave a TLD 15 a good run for its money and the line a really good stretch. This is not a fish we often catch here and so a really memorable catch.
