Another day, another couple of big fish but unfortunately you had to be in the right place to get one! There still aren’t a lot of fish around but the odd big one keeps the fleet on the spot trying. With a few more boats showing up from down South, Number 3 Ribbon is starting to resemble the Car Park at Pt. Stephens. While we had our bite early releasing another smaller Black for Angler Chris, Moana had a top day with two fish including one over a grand. Allure, Kekoa and Reel Ripe also releasing big fish in the area. Photo: Kekoa’s fish, an estimated 900lb-er on the bite captured by the underwater camera rig towed in front of the Scad. Later in the day, we again saw two fishing jumping at the back of Reel Ripe, a double header, but unfortunately with no success. The influx of 27 degree water over the last couple of days has also brought out the bities however with a great deal of luck, using mono on a circle hook, this Wahoo is out of the population and into the freezer. Reports from further afield show the odd fish now showing up on Number 10 where Shaka released an estimated 400lb-er.
