BTW, the 30-06 you sold me has been great. My 15 year old daughter shot a 50" moose with it last fall.



Good to hear. That rifle was awesome for me from 2006 when I bought it until I sold it to you. I never missed an animal with that rifle and I took all of my personal best rifle kills with it. It was a regretful sale but I wanted to drop some weight with the kimber.

I saw a few dozen red deer on my way to work last time so Iím getting itchy to go find a property and do some hunting. Itís probably time to get my gun license too but Iíve got a few bows with me and Iíll hunt with them for now. Next April during the rut Iíll make sure I get into them.

Me too. No huge expectations though. While the waters warmed up to about 24-25 deg and most palegics should be here itís still the very start of the season.
This is the second best moon phase to fish and the wind looks like itíll behave so itís time to give it a try.

What species besides Marlin could you pick up on this trip

And if you go hunting pics are a must

Given the option I would have two identical outboards on seperate fuel tanks and individual battery banks. This works though, I take care of the motor and so far it takes care of me. I also have plenty of tools and spares on board, my radio and EPIRB, anchors and a drogue. The coastguard is very good here too and worst case scenario theyíll come get me.
Do you got a dingy or other means to stay afloat if your boat takes on water and you have to abandon ship....and don't say you got a bunch of pool noodles
Your in shark infested water with a boat that just sunk full of bait....hmmmm...

All kidding aside keep on posting as we dreamers can continue enjoying your thread.

The typical trolling spread is targeting striped/black/blue marlin, yellowfin and longtail tuna, mahi mahi, wahoo, spotted/school and Spanish mackerel (king mackerel for the yanks), cobia, and some bycatch of skipjack and Mack tuna.

Realistically though most tuna are caught by throwing slugs or soft plastics to them when we see them chasing bait on the surface or targeted in shallower water with live bait via a kite, ballon or floating them somewhere in the water column. The yellowfin are caught more while trolling but occasionally I see them in a bust up.

If we jig we are in for over a hundred species but typically pearl perch, snapper, amberjacks, kingfish, red throat emperor, red emperor, nanogui, tuskies and yellowtail kingfish are the most prominent. I donít bottom bash very often but might cause Nolan already said he wants to and a feed of reef fish would be good.

Momma bear just said she wants fish so that means we better catch something edible.

Nah mate. Just the anchor retrieval ball to cling to or life jackets. Iím about to jump in the pool with the little girl but Iíll tell a story about being in the water out there one of these days when Iíve got a bit of time.
Sinking would be bad but not high on my list of possibilities. There are usually other boats around who could come lend a hand too.

That all sounds like way more fun then staring down a hole in the ice. I know a lot of guys view them as a nuisance at times fishing warm waters but I would have a hard time not chasing sharks too

Good luck

Well the club had a tournament last weekend. 14 boats, two days, only five marlin, 15 yellowfin and three mahi mahi caught. Most boats went heavy tackle which stipulates 200+ meters of water but the bite wasnít there. Last years tourney there were individual boats catching 8 marlin a day.

We wonít head out that deep so maybe we can find something better but typically if the crowd goes wide itís because thereís very little in closer. Tomorrowís forecast looks more like calm seas, cold beer and some vitamin D but its impossible to predict and a mans gotta fish when heís got time so...


These are the majority of the fish available to be caught








Havenít really seen many sharks. Iíve seen two hammer heads from the boat and the boys had a kingfish sharked once.









More frequently we see dolphins and most guys say if youíve got dolphins around there are no sharks. They come over and eat the fish we throw back so typically if you stop a dolphin will show up. Iím not saying we never feed them either.




Iíve seen lots of guys jump in and swim with them also. Iíve got a few videos of that but canít post em.

Looks like you have no lack of species to target

Though sharks would have been more common in QLD

Well itís not a good pic but we picked up a few gar this morning for tomorrowís fishing trip. Iíve got another 15 or so resting in a bucket in the creek and Iím hoping theyíre still alive tomorrow so we can use them as livies. If not we will run em dead and try to catch some yakkas, slimes mackerel or flying fish for live bait tomorrow.

Well a 03:00 start and a 20:30 finish makes for a long day. Had some highs and some lows but ultimately found some new ground and thereís a bit of fish in the fridge. Iíll post something up tomorrow.

Default Skip the ice, letís go bill fishing.

After prepping the boat and before waking the little man I walked over to get the gar we had stashed in the creek. Seemed someone else needed them worse then I did as the bucket was still there with the lid on top but the gar were gone.
Then my fishing buddy arrived ten minutes late and we stopped for fuel and snacks before launching the boat. On the water a little later then we should of at 430 and off to see what the day would bring.






We shot out to the first fad which is 10 nm off shore. We werenít the only boat on the fad and while we could see mahi mahi they didnít want to eat what we were offering. We moved on to the next fad and had a strike with no hookup. The next pass gave us two more strikes with one finally hooked up.




We tried the third fad with lures instead of gar and had one strike but no hookup. Then we shot east for another 10 nm to the banks and started trolling for the fourth fad. Again we could see the mahi but they seemed to have lockjaw. The sounder was showing a lot of nice fish in about 35m on the thermocline and there was another boat pulling two lines off downriggers. They landed a nice wahoo and mahi in the fifteen minutes we were there so perhaps the old scotties will need to take a ride out there with me next time.

At that point we turned north and trolled for the areas we caught marlin last summer. We didnít see anything useful, no bait balls, nothing really interesting at all besides a pod of dolphins.
I noticed a bit of structure on my chart a few miles north so we kept steaming in the 120mís of water heading for an area where it popped up to about 90m.






Just on the south side of the area of interest in about 104 m of water we started seeing more flying fish then weíve ever seen. They were coming off the water in front of the boat in schools (flocks?) of 50-100 fish flying away from us.
Then it finally happened. There was a big boil on the water 15m behind the boat where the long corner had been swimming and the 12Ē marlin magic ruckus was gone. The drag started howling and my buddy grabbed the rod. I started clearing the first line and this marlin came to surface about 70m behind us with his head sticking out of the water thrashing back and forth. It was huge. The largest fish Iíve ever raised and while I donít know how big (I realise almost nobodyís going to believe me) Iím going to estimate 300+kg. He sat back there for about 20 seconds with his head and occasionally shoulders sticking out of the water thrashing back and forth. Theyíre was a lot of yelling about what we had hooked and I managed to clear two lines before the line went slack. Letís just say at that point there was more yelling but it was more colourful.
Thatís life though, typically boats are doing well if they can hook up on 50% of strikes. Nothing left but to set the spread and try and raise another fish. So we doubled down and I took the skipping gar off the short rigger and put another 9Ē coggin tado out there so we had some extra action in the spread. We worked the area in a bit of a loop and on the third pass through the same spot the long rigger went off. Initially we thought marlin again as the drag was screaming but then a mahi mahi started jumping behind the boat.
Porter was still on deck to fight the fish and he brought it boat side for me to gaff.




It was a nice fish but we could see another dozen or so in the water with him so I attempted to hook another before we pulled the first one out. They would chase my offerings but nobody wanted to hit it. Then we noticed how poorly the first one was hooked so we brought him in for the gaff shot.







We were then told by Nolan he wanted to catch the next one. I took the 9Ē lure back off the long corner, put a 7Ē tado behind a bird and deemed it a more mahi friendly spread and decided we could handle a few more if they were that size. After another pass or two I watched a green rocket shoot across the prop watch and hit that same lumo sprocket you see sticking out of porters fishes mouth.
This one was a bit smaller but the right size for Nolan. Unfortunately after a jump or two the hook came out and he was gone.

We trolled a little more, working the same area and finally decided we best head for port. We got back to the banks in about 50m of water that same sprocket on the long rigger went off. I hadnít seen the fish and it didnít feel very big so we left most of the spread out and Nolan landed arguably the hungriest mac tuna in the ocean. He was so small he had no business hitting a lure that size. I wish we could of caught some like him when out chasing marlin as they would of received a 7/0 circle hook in the face before being trolled behind the boat for that leviathan we had raised.




We ran back for the inshore fads. The first two had people fishing then so we hit the third one. We made a couple passes and finally got one hooked up. Nolan had decided the little tuna didnít count as his turn so he took this mahi as well. For the record, I didnít gaff this fish, I always aim for the head like the one above.







We then headed in for the clean up and some much needed sleep.




The water was still fairly cool at 24.5-25 deg and I didnít mark much bait schooled up out there. Fishing on a weekend always sucks too because there are so many other boats on the fads. Typically during the week we have them to ourselves and do a lot better.

Besides for bait I havenít fished any river, canals or lakes since I bought the boat. Thereís some good fishing available it just doesnít interest me like the ocean does.
Donít get me wrong, those dorado are good eating and a great way to break the monotony on the water but itís the big fish that lure me out there. Specifically the billfish but also the trophy fish of most species. That mahi that porter caught is getting into that category, the 42kg wahoo I got last April fits as well. I havenít caught one yet but a 100+ lb yellowfin would get me pretty excited or a big cobia... the list goes on and on. The thing they share in common is that theyíre capable of putting up enough fight you donít know if your going to be able to land it. Thereís something about hearing the clicker scream as a fish is dumping hundreds of meters of line off your reel that has become an addiction.

I like fishing for many reasons but the main thing that drags me out there and the thing that makes me willing to tolerate hours of trolling around is knowing eventually that strike will come, there will be a drag screaming, the ensuing chaos on deck as you try and clear lines and start giving chase before you run out of line and the fight that ensues is worth it. Sometimes though itís just a baby tuna thatís only good for bait and sometimes itís a fish like that marlin we raised that has seared itís image into my brain. Iíll chase a fish like that for as long as Iím able to just for the privilege of seeing it... although I would of preferred to have caught it.

Tomorrowís looking like another fishing day, if not tomorrow then Thursday for sure.

Always nice to see those colors on the Mahi Mahi, but they don't last long.

Your kids will have forever fond memories of the time they went ocean fishin with their Dad, tks for sharing the pic's, brings back a few memories of some ocean charters I organized.

Cheers

I like the blue colour they are in the water when theyíre fired up. The new iPhones get the pictures of them in the water but my phones camera doesnít have the polarised lens so I canít get it. By the time you pull them out of the water theyíre green and then go gold as they die.
Theyíre always fun to catch but watching them in the waters pretty cool. There are usually a few dozen around the fads or any floating debris in the water and when we pull one in to the boat itís always got a few friends with it.

Time to buy a spear gun, grow a set and try and forget about the sharks. Then it wonít matter if theyíre hungry cause theyíre very easy to shoot.


Headed out again tomorrow for another crack at a billfish. Also taking the downriggers for a try around the thermocline to see whatís hanging out down there at the fads.

As long as you enjoy yourself is the main thing and big fish are a blast

Myself I look at the charts you posted of different species and would want to try fishing for them all because I enjoy catching new species

Good luck

The overcast skyís are a blessing. Iíve only had two overcast mornings to fish since Iíve been here and theyíve both been good. The last one we had eight marlin strikes in three hours. Today was the second overcast morning and it turned out to be a dolphin fish day.

We took off to the fads for a look around. The first one had four boats on it so we didnít even head over but instead went to the second fad. First pass had a few strikes and one decent mahi hooked up.




A couple more passes produced a few half hearted strikes and no more hookups. We took off for the second fad and found some smaller sized fish and put a few in the kill tank. No pics taken.

We then headed out wide to hit that little hump where that blue marlin broke our hearts two days ago. I got the first two lures in the water and was setting the third out when we had our first strike and hookup. Porter took this one again and it was a nice bull mahi.







We then managed to put our spread out and kept going. A few minutes later we hooked up another one and I brought it in. Porter got beat up by it when he brought it in on the gaff but managed to wrestle it down.




We went back to that hump and found no flying fish, no bait and no marlin. The current was pushing out and there was a temp break a few miles east so we steamed out to about 240m where we found the temp break then zig zagged in and out of it heading south for another fad. Through it all found zero bait and nothing of interest. The sun popped out though and the seas calmed down.
We got down to the furthest fad and made a pass. Had a few strikes and hooked another cow up.








We trolled in another ten miles or so before giving up on the marlin and heading home.

All up we took a limit of mahi, threw a few back, lost a few and completely struck out on the billfish. Looks like fish tacos for the next week.

Sounds like bill fish are tough to sink a hook in

Still looks like you had a good day

It is nice to be out of the sun too. Even when itís overcast itís not cold like the old country. It was still 25 deg at 04:00 when we drove to the boat ramp.


The billfish are always a challenge but itís a lot harder when they arenít here. Being pelagic weíve got to wait until they show up in proper numbers before we have much chance at catching them. Iím no pro but from what I saw in two days of fishing, combined with the tournament results from a week and a half ago itís my opinion theyíre just not here yet.

Seems we might have to head back to Hervey Bay if we want to scratch that billfish itch this days off. Iíll see how it goes, need to service the outboard and spend some time with the family before I head out again.

I just drove down Lakeshore Dr, it's a bty sunny day here going to 0C but it's all white except for the Ab Blue sky.

Tks for the report & pic's, look forward to your next trip.

Have you checked out any of the golf courses, kids love swinging clubs & hitting balls ?

Yes, I may have sampled a few of the courses up and down the coast. Beautiful, world class courses and cheap. I guess thatís one advantage to year round golf, they donít have to charge a fortune to play.
I havenít taken the kids though, usually a few buddies or the wife but the kids may get a turn one day.

Think I said this previously .... No Life Like It ....

Surprised the Mrs & kids haven't convinced you to take them out to the range or course, I'm sure that will change.

Kids here are out of school again, rinks & pools closed, more restrictions, Sylvan has 60 active/98 covid cases, R/D has 236 active/580 cases and it's going to get worst before it gets better.
