Fished Well the wind backed off all day and by lunch was beautiful, water was dirty inshore and out to about 20 miles, then got cleaner as the day got on, but only to the north up by Jims. Had a drop on Jims and caught a big Hapuka on the first drop, then had a second drop and caught an even bigger one around 40 pounds. Live well was full with 2 fish!! So back to trolling, caught a nice 25lb bull dolphin and called it quits and ran home in a flat calm sea, a few humpbacks cruising north about 10 miles off the seaway. On the coast for a few more weeks, then off to Townsville where the little blacks are still biting strong, come and join us if you can.
