Time to get back into blogging!!An extremely restful holiday period has recharged the batteries after the tough season up North. And a month of bad weather here on the Gold Coast has meant no fishing. Capt. Luke and I snuck away for a spot of Dam fishing in the last week and missed the annual Gold Coast Riviera Masters where the fishing was tough – 12 billfish for the 57 boats and three days fishing. Tough going guys!But it’s not all bad news as reports from down South have given us something to get excited about. Capt. Ross on Broadbill scored 8 from 10 Stripies yesterday. This follows weekend reports that the team on one of the local private boats had a great run of fish with 6 from close to 40 strikes and Capt. Tim’s reports that boats are catching up to 6-8 fish per trip.The fish have arrived!! Reel Chase and Kekoa leave for the Port Stephens Season on February 9 so all we can say is save some fish for us guys!! Regular reports should begin again then. If you want to join us, drop us a line . Some photos from 2007 to get you in the mood! Back closer to home Kiwi boat Ultimate Lady, now calling Gold Coast home-base during the summer season, has been fishing out wide from Cape Moreton to Coffs Harbour finding a few fish all along the shelf but nothing red hot.
