We predicted a late season and for once the crystal ball worked, both Captain Ross and Glenn have been "bringing home the bacon" or is it tuna.

Over past few trips we have not missed out giving our anglers some action packed trips on albacore to 12kgs and yellowfin to 38kg.

We have fished the higher latitudes and have caught some great fish in these zones.

Bernhard's group scored well with yellowfin last week as did Peter's crew, then Peter Hunter and Frank Venesia's crew excelled on Broadbill when we ran over a couple of really good fin in a school.

All fish were caught on bib less minnows and bloodshot jets.

The photos tell it all "SMILES ON DIALS" That makes for happy customers.

Our great friends from Sylvania marina on Lockout also got lucky when Captain Amien was feeding out a lure only to have it ripped from his hand by a 50 kg tuna It was Emil Sipkovsky's strike and he did a great job on the rod to land the big fish They also caught a good dollie. They were fishing next to us when the hook up occurred.
