With another slow fishing day we thought we’d review some video footage from Moose’s trip last year to get us in the mood. We fished Lena through to Number 2 Ribbon with a beautiful live tuna all day. Needless to say, this is the only jumping Marlin that we saw.With other boats now spread far and wide along the reef in search of the main body of fish, Calypso reported seeing a number of small fish at Number 8, while Iona and Maratimo both encountered fish out wide of the reefs. They also reported the current raging south about 5 mile out which has been non existent along the edge since the wind came up. The magnificent Ultimate Lady is heading wide early this morning in search of the tuna aggregation and the long-liners. Hopefully the marlin will also be there.
