  1. Cheers boys, thanks for the clarification👍. I had been told otherwise by a couple of other blokes that do a lot more marlin fishing than me that it was a blue. Black or Blue it was big, powerful and an awesome experience and I can't wait to be connected to another one 😄
  2. Decided to travel to Bermagui in an attempt to christen my boat and bust my mates cherry on a marlin last Tuesday. We dropped into Bermi Bait and Tackle to get the latest on where to go and after egg and bacon rolls for breakfast we headed to the 12 mile to have a crack. On our arrival we found 40-50 other boats covering the area so we decided to have a bit of a troll and get a bit of an idea on what was happening. 15 minutes into it the long rigger gets smacked but the hooks didn't set, Bugger!!! We reset the spread and spent another half hour trolling the lures before I said we need to drift a couple of live baits. We caught 2 strings of stonking big slimes and bridled 2 up and sent them back into the cobalt blue water. 10 minutes later one of the 15kg outfits takes a big run. I tell my mate to wait for the second run then count to 5 and push the drag up to strike. He does and then all hell breaks loose. The fish takes 2 big runs and then goes deep. I say to my mate I think it's a good blue or a tail wrapped stripe. We spend the next 3 hours trying everything to get the fish up from the deep and after 5 hours chasing this stubborn fish we find we have travelled from the 12 mile off Bermagui to Tathra. With my mate beaten and bruised we finally had our hands on the leader and the fish boat side for a few moments before it screamed off again and finally winning its freedom. The fish ended up being a Blue and went 2.7 m short length at an est 170 kg. It was an awesome experience and a great way to christen my boat and break my mate 😂😜
  3. Last Saturday I received delivery of a complete carbon fibre outrigger kit delivered in person by Gary Bricknell. Not only did Gary deliver the outriggers but also a carbon fibre Shotgun rigger, Tagline kit and a Bird Teaser. Gary also had a spare hour to spend with me, advising me on the best location for the mounting of my new riggers on my boat and talking about game fishing in general. Thanks heaps Gary Cheers, Corey Outriggers Direct Outstanding quality product Outstanding customer service Outstanding value

  5. briso and Ylwfin, it would be greatly appreciated if you could share any details of your trip off J.B as a mate and I maybe heading out of there on Thursday arvo weather permitting. Good luck everyone Corey
  6. Has anyone heard any reports of how the fishing was today from the comp? I heard it was very windy down that way today but the weekend is looking better.
  7. Big follower of the site for a while now and have learnt a heap from everyone here so thank you to everyone. Now to the topic at hand, a mate fished wide of Batemans Bay today after hearing of the fishing down there yesterday and went 3-2-1. They had a double hookup of striped marlin. They had a big stripe smashing their teaser and following their corner and rigger skirts for a while so they chose to zig zag to entice it to bite and off went the shotgun with another smaller stripe. At the same time the big stripe hit one of the riggers and throw the hooks a short time later but 1 hr 40 mins later they had an 83 kg stripe boat side on 10 kg, by happy crew. They fished just over shelf as water was green inside shelf. Apparently plenty of bait around and fish were found near some feeding seals. Hope that helps Corey
