MARLIN IN THE SPREAD
MARLIN IN THE SPREAD
Dec 23, 2016 Durban
MARLIN IN OUR SPREAD Yesterday we took the boys from Effingham out for a reunion. The day started off with decent conditions but the swell intervals left us with a slightly bumpy ride. our spread was out and looking fantastic, loads of splishing and splashing in the water, but despite our best efforts, we were struggling to get the fish to bite (and we could see Dorados chasing our lures). After about 2 hours of trolling we headed into deeper waters and found clean blue water. BANG!!! first Dorado in the spread and boated, action started to heat up. then our short rigger went crazy, on/off - i turned from the fly bridge and saw a Marlin in the spread, he took the short rigger, then got onto the teaser so hard he practically tore off my outriggers, then onto the Long rigger. Eric was on the deck, now Eric has landed approx 80 Marlins and knows his onions, sadly despite our best efforts we could not get the Marlin hooked. We tried raising her again to no avail. The ACTION WAS WORTH IT!! Shortly after that another Marlin, but this time it swam straight across our beam and under the boat, with the south wester pumping, we did not chase her. The South Wester came in and came in hard, we started making our way back to port and unfortunately we were back on the docks by about 11. Great day out, if it wasnt for that nasty South Wester, i am certain we would have increased our catch. lots of laughs and trips down memory lane, these guys even put a whole chicken on the braai!! Thanks guys, it was great to see all of you again.
