On Reel Chase we finally found our own bunch of fish Wednesday, even if they were only small – releasing two from four at Escape Reef. On what was a much better day weather-wise – without a doubt the best weather day in October – we saw a few others tailing down sea. Lucky Danny (his new name on board) with his second fish and a first for Dave giving us more fun and games with the TowCam Tow Camera and Pole Camera. This time we got the footage of the bite on the Tow Cam as well as the action at the back of the boat and some additional Tow Cam footage of another fish who followed us for a while, inspecting the baits, but did not eat. With hopefully a weather change due next week we’ll be looking forward to some more footage on our camera’s. Nearby we saw Little Audrey backing off over the horizon to the south-east and later we found out they had a nice 600lb-er wrapped up in the leader giving them a bit of stick. They finally released the fish after an hours fight. Moana III and Joe Joe travelled south to Linden Bank and had a couple of bites on arrival but no tags for their Russian Anglers. Top: Danny on, and Danny’s fish. Bottom: Dave’s fish ready to rocket out for a jump and tag shot. At Number 10 Ribbon, Capt. Laurie on Ningaloo released a 500lb-er for angler Brian and hooked up on another big fish at the top of the reef only to have her spit the hook.
