After an uneventful trip to the South, we returned to Jenny Louise yesterday. We enjoyed a morning swim and some bait fishing and popper casting as we made our way north again from overnight at Noggin Reef, side by side with Kekoa we both dropped the baits in just on lunchtime and that is where our luck diverged for the rest of the day. While we trolled and marked several fish, they did not come up for us. Meanwhile, the boys on Kekoa were on fire. Within minutes of putting the baits in were hooked up on a double header and successfully released a 350lb-er while a much bigger fish got away. And not too long after, another bite saw frisky 150lb-er released as well. Also fishing right next to us was Ultimate Lady who released 3 from 3 for the second day in a row at the shoal.Very happy the fish are still here for our last few trips. Hopefully, as we get away from the moon they start to bite better. Dan’s Yellowfin off Noggin and a beautiful sunrise at Flynn Reef this morning.
