What a weekend to be fishing off Bermi with a couple of double figure days for boats on the hot spot!
Nathan Brown’s Head Hunter with 10 conversions from 11 strike yesterday (9 stipes and one black marlin). Nathan says that after a 3-3-3 day on Tuesday, yesterday they found a nice bait ball where they released the black and a nice one (for the far south coast) of around 130kg as well as four striped marlin – the day was looking good!
Chosing to disappear from the main group of boats, they added to the tally but were still only at 5 fish for the day at 4pm. Soon after the missed their only fish for the day on the switch, before finding the holy grail notching up another 5 fish in just a touch over an hour’s fishing. Although that put them traveling home at close to 8pm it was well worth it to say the least!
Nathan said they saw some of the most awesome surface action he’s witnessed with multiple fish on balls and some awesome bites right at the back of the boat.
Nathan said the bite at Bermagui has been excellent all week with plenty of boats getting multiple fish each day and hopefully to only get better as the month rolls on.
Port and Central Coast Blacks
Central Coast GFC’s VP Myles Weston also reports from the Central Coast that on his boat Elempi they released a black marlin yesterday for Louis, from Brazil which was his first marlin.
Luke Bell (who fishes with Capt. Laurie Wright on Think Big off Cairns) fishing on Luke Brummell’s Food Chain also released 1 black and 1 stripe for the day fishing the same area.
