REEF MAGIC CHARTERS

Sydney Marlin aboard Reef Magic

9 posts in this topic

Hi guys back again,

We had a eventful 2016 with Mike having open heart surgery and myself fracturing 3 vertebrae & rupturing 2 disks in a fall fishing in February. We both have had the year off but both recovered and back into it with our first charter off Sydney today.

We we're hearing of a few striped Marlin being hooked but a lot throwing the hooks. Around 11 we had a double hookup but both fish threw the hooks. We continued to hear boats losing fish and we hung in till the 4.30 tide change and finally the bite we wanted. Solid hookup with a 70kg striped doing what they do jumping everywhere. After an entertaining fight we tagged a nice     striped Marlin.

We will be fishing out of Newcastle for 3 weeks from next week before heading to Port Stephens for the rest of the season.

If your keen for a charter give us a call on 0407113349

Cheers

Damo

Been doing plenty to make sure I'm up to it and everything has been going to plan. Getting the hooks out and bringing the fish on board and releasing it was no issue. Sure I will feel it tomorrow but doc says its all ok so full steam ahead.. with caution.

cheers
