BY: Webteam / 0 COMMENTS / CATEGORIES: Fishing Trips, Other species

This huge 95 cm Barra weighing 11 kg was the biggest of all the fish we caught that day just outside of Bangkok . Total fish for the day between the two of us was 41 . Most of them were around 6.5 kg , some 5 kg some 8 to 9 kg . All on light gear , 2500 reel and 30 lb leader . We used only hard body lures , shallow running and the slower you worked the lure the more vicious the bite . All were released as the hooks had the barbs off . What a beauty . More info on the Thailand fishing soon .

Fishing Pittwater Australia Day (Jewfish & Snapper)

BY: Webteam / 0 COMMENTS / CATEGORIES: Bream, Other species, Pittwater, Soft plastics

Had the opportunity to go out for a couple of hours this afternoon , mainly to fuel the boat for tomorrow , but who can pass up a fish when on the wind was blowing and I had half an hour before low tide so I thought I would fish a 5″ soft plastic for a jewie . Give it an hour I said to myself . Just on dead low I hooked a nice school Jewish in Pittwater . It was amongst the boats in some deep water . No other bites at all . So off I went to get out of the wind . I drifted the northern side of Scotland island and I hooked the biggest whiting I have seen in Pittwater . It was 43 cm . I counted it even though I hooked it in the belly . Then I hooked a small baby snapper on the 5″ soft plastic as I drifted over a drop off . Not a bad two hours fishing ! There is a video on each of the catches below . All fish were released . There are plenty of fish at the moment . Flathead , bream , snapper , kingies, etc . Use my tips and you will catch them in Pittwater .

Fishing Vanuatu for Yellowfin Tuna

BY: Webteam / 0 COMMENTS / CATEGORIES: Fishing Trips, Other species, Popping, Soft plastics

First day of four days fishing . The wind is howling but we decide to go out to the fads for yellowfin .it is not really a fishing trip as we have our wives with us so half days are going to be the norm . Once we get to the fad its micro jigs out to get some skipjack for bait . First drop all four of us hook up to rainbow runners . These fish are cousins to the kingfish . Next drop all four hook up again , this time two rainbow runners and two skipjack . Then it went off so we started trolling and using our poppers out the back . I also put out a 7″ soft plastic in white to see if they preferred this . Over the next hour the soft plastic worked and in came 4 nice yellow fin tuna . A few more skip jacks and at 11 am we headed for calm water as the swell was causing us havoc .
Back for lunch at the resort with the girls and they were not keen for the boat two of us went out into calm water chasing dogtooth tuna .
The next two hours gave us no joy , only a shark and a couple of small fish . See the video below of the shark and the days catch between two boats .

Catching Giant Trevally Far North Queensland

BY: Webteam / 0 COMMENTS / CATEGORIES: Other species, Soft plastics
Day two went from 7.30 am till 5 pm .Weather was fantastic, no wind , hot and sunny . There are 4 boats with guides and 3 fishing per boat . Total score was 9 GT’s , 4 in the 6-8 kg ,2 ,10-15 kg , and 3 ,20 kg each . Some big fish .Also there was 4 coral trout in the 3-4 kg Mark, a couple of sharks , and some small stuff in between .overall the fishing was slow and to break it up we had swims and snorkelling in amongst the best coral you could ever see. Lunch was on a sandy island where two of the fisho’s caught a small GT each , site casting soft plastics .This water is crystal clear. One boat had a terrible day with only a few small reef fish . The day was mainly spent casting huge poppers for the giant trevally .Very hot work but when they hit it is amazing and exciting . To break up the fishing some used small nomad stick baits , and I used soft plastics and micro jigs . Most of my coral trout came from 7″ soft plastics , Berkeley gulp in pearl glow , or the pink , with 1oz jig heads , 5/0 hook , 80 lb leader , 30 or50 lb braid , rod PE 2-4 ,5000 Stella reel , and PE 3-5 , 6000 Stella reel . For 12 of us , not a prolific day but an enjoyable one as the location is just fantastic.

Live baiting and trolling garfish , and light tackle . We need to get out there. Anyone had any luck ?
