Yellowfin Fever - Report From Ross Hunter

Ken A

Recommended Posts

This write up is hot off the press BROADBILL and BILLFISHER caught 20 yellowfin, 8 striped tuna and a 100kg striped marlin last weekend.

(See the pictures of a great weekends fishing )

What a busy day for our anglers, they were running the decks to keep up with the action.

The fish were from 8kg to 30kg …

We caught most of the fish in 90 fathoms off Botany bay…..Lures were the go…. Both Bloodshot "tuna hunters" combined with bib less minnows were dynamite

Special congratulations to Captain Glenn on BILLFISHER for the tagging of a fantastic striped marlin in winter .

The big fish swooped on a Bloodshot lure and the first time angler from Mann's earthmoving did a great job on the rod.

Winter stripes are pretty rare but do occur occasionally and I can assure that when there are a good population of yellowfin around the marlin will be with them.

We had a "fabulously fishy weekend"

So all you Fishraiders get out and give them a go.

Captain Ross and Glenn Hunter's boats Broadbill and Billfisher are available for tuna charters on 9534 2378

It would have been great to be apart of that.

The sea even looks calm.

Might have to give Ross & Glen a call to book a date :1fishing1:

Well done to the skippers and crews,

Had a feeling the guys did well out there when I saw them both come in at almost dark.

Nice healthy looking stripe too, But what a terrible tag shot.

Ok Fellas,

Enough about the fish, more about Nikee.

Does she own a boat? If so please send a picture via PM? Also need a photo of the trailer. :074::074::074::074::074::074::074:
