Moon is bright, fish wana bite.
"Super Moon Weekend" and the laundry is out.
So much for the "fish don't bite on the full moon" theory.
The bite started to come on strong the 1st of June and now we are experiencing the best fishing of the season. In fact the bite is better than anytime I can recall last year.
The billfish can be found almost anywhere in East Cape waters and the bite is just ridiculous It reminds me of Mag Bay fishing. It is not uncommon for boats to have double and triple hook ups and return having released numbers in double digits.
Now yellowfin tuna have arrived on the scene as well. Several schools of spotted dolphin have moved in all holding tuna. Most of the tuna are pee wee size but hit the right school and there are some bruisers Yesterday a 176 pounder was brought to the scale. A few good grade wahoo are also mixed in feasting on football tuna.
Dorado are not schooled up in numbers but the ones being found are trophy sized bulls.
Our weather couldn't be nicer and fishing is about as good as it gets.
Nothing as beautiful as a big bull dorado
Our AFTCO bat being put to the test
13 year old Austin Miller with his first dorado. It weighed in at 58 lbs.
The marlin bite is insane
This is how they come unbuttoned. Check out the hook on this fishes bill. As soon as he shakes his head it is adios amigo
Ready for release
Lots of sailfish in the mix
