A Sailfish to commence the Season.
Offshore Fishing Report – 2 October 2019
The 2nd day into the Game Fishing season and we were still buzzing from the big Tuna the day before and things were quiet, we had picked up some Shad on the bullets (Yes out of season and they were put back) and also a few smaller Bonnies. There was a light rain and inshore was quiet so I sped up and headed out deeper, it was a short morning trip so time was against us. Once deep I tapped the throttles back a little and started working some previously productive areas and BANG the port corner went and I thought it was a small Striped Marlin as it took off, 30 minutes later we had a good sized Sailfish at the boat which we released and then made our way back into port. A really good start to the season and I hope it is a sign of good things to come. I have been expecting the Dorado to show up anytime along with some Black Marlin.
