Gday all, just logging in to see if there’s anyone with a capable boat that may need a hand during the week on the hunt for yellowfin? ive got my own boat and been out to 12 mile from port Jackson couple times but gotta pick my days and once there can’t exactly smoke the fuel off on the troll. also don’t have live SST’s etc. im an English fella with lots of experience, plenty of sea hours and common sense. Did my coxswains in NSW and have worked as a deckee on fishing charters for marlin out of port jackson and reefies out the hacking. Decided last minute I wanna get in on some action and hook up a fin or even a jelly bean last minute so just putting out the 👋🏻incase anyone wants a mate onboard to share costs and hi fives!! gimme a shout if so, Rino
Had a few Raiders on-board yesterday, we got one Yellowfin around 25-30kg for 4 knockdowns. At first I was sure it was a Bluefin, it ran as hard and long as the Bluefin we caught a couple of weeks ago. We hi-sped trolled all the way to Browns at 20 knots and got nothing doing that, (I didn’t expect to J), we slowed down to 8 knots at Browns and trolled to about 10NM east of Brown’s in 20.2 for zeros. We headed directly south from there, it got better the further south we went and we started getting a few knockdowns. We found a slight temp break with a long line nearby that went from 20.2 to 19.7, we got the Yellowfin near there, about 10NM east of the Canyons. A good day out, a little choppy in the morning but it settled right down in the arvo. James, who was on board jumped in the water and took a few underwater photos of the fin, braver than me, looking forward to seeing them. We got it on 6” Red/Black lure chain with squid inside the bait chamber. When we cleaned the Yellowfin it was full of squid, so there’s the match. http://www.scentblazer.com/Products/tabid/292/ProdID/1275/CatID/197/Lure_Chain_Red__Black_Squid__Pusher_Head.aspx Also the navigation lights on the Sow and Pigs markers are not working, so watch out if you are around there at night.
