WOW, what a week of fishing TRADITION has had the last 4 days. Pretty much the best fishing of my life driving a boat.
First day on Linden Bank, I raised 8 fish, had 5 bites and jumped off a 400 lb fish, and tagged a 550, 900 and finished the day with one I called 1050, a big heavy solid fish in horrible conditions. The boys got worked, the boat was totally full of water and still going hard after her with the leader just out of reach. Great video from the tower and a great day in anyones book.
Next day we fished from Spur up to Opal and missed a nice fish around 700, and played with a big hammerhead for a bit.
The third day we fished up to Ruby Reef, and pulled off a fish on a Wombat after 10 minutes outside the Agincourts, and put the baits in at Escape Reef, where we got a 600 and later up in the shallows on Ruby tagged a stubborn fish of 650. The wind is still howling, at 25 knots, but it has been the same for 2 weeks straight.
Last day today we raised a nice fish around 700 that just could commit!! and that was about all we did today. So in 4 days we tagged 5 fish and all really nice ones.
Out again tomorrow, well we are everyday till Nov 23 at the moment!!!
