I spoke with Griffo this morning who’s been taking advantage of some better fishing at Port this week on board his new 40foot White Cap Magic with 15 from the three days fishing thus far (including a PB for Mario on the rod with 5 in one day). And back out for more action today. Griffo says the bait has been back in plague proportions at the carpark Monday/Tuesday although as the only boat fishing out there yesterday he had a bit more trouble finding it. Of the 15 fish 5 were black marlin and the rest stripes – this is more like the ratios and captures that we’ve come to expect from Port. On Iona II, Capt. Trent fished Tuesday for 4 from 7. I hear more boats are heading out today so hopefully they’ll be getting in amongst them again.27 March Update: Griffo and team Magic added another six yesterday (and saw a heap more) bringing their tally to 21 from the four days fishing and I had a quick chat to Capt. Tim on Calypso yesterday who’s also been getting amongst them with 20 fish for their last six days fishing.
