Well the weather followed me down to Port Stephens also, only getting in 2 days of fishing. First day out 2 days after a great bite we did not see a fish! The next day Mike bait & switched a nice striped marlin around 80kgs and saw another fish tailing (see pics). That was our only shot for the day but the fishing was on the improve with good reports coming further South from where we fished that day, so we were hopeful for the rest of the week. However, the following 2 days saw a Southerly of 30 knots blowing – cancelling the fishing. You can only say we tried hard with the options at hand and “should have been there yesterday!!”.
Back in Cairns continuing to fish light tackle for Spanish mackerel, tunas, trevally and sailfish.
