  1. Gday Raiders, This year - is the year i am hopefully going to be able to finally target a YFT. I have a 4.75 Top Ender and have (in the right conditions) been 30-50 km offshore regularly. Need advice on a couple things before the season properly starts to help me try and land this dream nugget. Ill usually have someone on board with me so i don't mind running 4 rods as we have a bit of experience clearing them fair fast when we were on our marlin mission earlier this year. Gear: I currently have x4 Okuma TG30 2 speeds with 500m of 50lb braid and i would say 100-200m o

  3. Headed up with a mate from Sydney to my brothers place at Port Stephens to see if we could find some Yellowfin Tuna We tried to work out what days would be best and decided on Sunday Interesting start to the day with torrential showers first thing in the morning while we loaded boat We could have almost cancelled - and as we headed up the bay from soldiers point the rain kept coming Conditions outside the heads were a bit all over the place but we thought we’d push through and see if it improved We got about 10kms out and things did improve- rain was behind us now
  4. Been living in qld from Sydney for a year now and have been fishing and travelling across the South passage bar frequently. We are learning to fish it well and having regular results. There is so much variety here and the fishing isn't as pressured. From our last couple trips we have caught multiple snapper in 12 metres of water and while trolling home picked up a juicy yellowfin. Went fishing again Saturday and kept 12 mahi mahi and let several go all on live bait and soft plastics. They are great fun on light gear on a soft plastic. Hoping for my first Wahoo soon will keep you all post
  5. Hi all Looking at upgrading my boat for some serious offshore fishing - off the shelf etc - I have been in a lot of 22-28ft glass boats such as edencraft, Haines etc. but never been in mass produced plate boats. Comparing glass to plate boats in 20-24ft what's the comparison. Have found an ocean ranger 679 HT with all the bells but is two states away. No dealer will let you take a boat for a test drive locally and just seeking opinions in the yellowfin or Stacer aluminum from people who have been in them. Let me know
  6. Finally managed to get out on the boat on Sunday to chase some tuna with the old man. Was slow going, particularly compared to the reports from last weekend, with only two YFT ~10kg called in on the radio throughout the day. However, persistence paid off and we managed to land this beast ~20km SE of Browns late in the afternoon on the troll. Weighed in at over 50kg and almost beat me for height - awesome fish and definitely a new PB YFT off Sydney
  7. My last day fishing was looking a bit misserable but I knew that it would only bring on the fish..We were going out to target the black marlin again but as we headed out things weren't looking the best. We worked the currents and did all the normal things like looking for birds, then we saw a great site........ A massive boil up of Yellow fin.. The first pass we had on the boat 2 good strip tuna, and 2 very nice yellow fin. Lines in again, and away we go... a few more skip jacks and then that sound that everyone craves for ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. 1 very big run. After
  8. Headed out yesterday in search of bluefin / yellowfin and stumbled on these guys We weren't expecting to get our best dollies of the year in winter but we aren't complaining Smallest went 89cm / 8lbs and the biggest 121cm / 16lbs Got all of them on the troll between 2 and 4pm around 5 - 10km west of Heaton's Hill
  9. Two Sundays ago we got up early, headed straight out to Sydney FAD and started trolling right on sunrise. Before we could get our second lure in the spread out a dollie was on. The fish we talking anything and within the first hour we had landed to 6 legal dollies and three 70cm+ stripey tuna. Then the fish just went quiet for a couple of hours even though bait continued to bubble on the surface in every direction. We moved on from the FAD and headed north and shortly after found a 3km area where the tuna were going nuts. Double hook-ups, triple hook-ups, quadruple hook-ups and it didn't stop
  10. Headed offshore yesterday, didn’t get out there early, but we rarely do. Wind was not too bad, it was NW and then turned NE 15-20 knots in about 2.30pm. We didn’t see any another boats out there, which was a first in quite a while. Out of the Sydney Heads we travelled NE, about 1 NM past the Whale Fad the water rose from 22.9 to 24.8 and there was massive visible current line running about 5 knots north to south, honestly it was like rapids on the edge. Headed north along the outside of the current line, we got a Striped Tuna and a couple Dolphin Fish along it. The water was electric blue.
  11. Finally headed out yesterday after long run of bad weather. Went straight to 12 Mile and immediately upon arriving a big 1m fin broke the surface 20m in front of the boat. Was plenty of bait from 50-100m showing up on the sounder and a number of larger fish underneath and on the sides. After no luck trolling 12 mile for an hour we jigged and caught a few slimmy Mack's (obviously what the fins were feeding on). Changed up the lure colours we were trolling with to those that had the closest colouring with a slimmy mack and continued to the south. Shortly after bang double hook-up - two good size
  12. Our day started with chatter on the radio of Wahoo, Yellowfin and Marlin being caught off Sydney, with no one divulging any info on the whereabouts of little honey hole out on the big blue we continued with plan A which consisted of putting our spread of Scent Blazer High speed lures out at north head and running nor east to the Sydney FAD than to The Hydraulics Buoy and than out towards the bait station, swapping the lures for the chance of a blue marlin. Picking up the Scent Blazer Crew Checking all the gear on the way out through Sydney Harbour As we put in our spread of Scent Blazer
