Trip Summary

The fishing , west out of Hout Bay this time of year so far has been spectacular. Water temperatures of 17 -21 degrees , electric blue waters. Still reports of some Marlin around but we have been fully focused on the tuna. 8am ten minutes into trawling the owner hooked into a massive 102kg big eye tuna. It marked at 45m and took on the center line. Was a great way to start the day. After speaking to the captain of a net trawler and politely asking him what time he would be pulling up, we circled a few times and waited. After ten minutes of him pulling his net, I went about 10 degrees to his star board aft, saw some great marks and started putting some bait in the water....the rest of the day we were fish on! Breaching fish next to the boat and taking lines like ive been dying to sea again. Incredible! We will not forget this day for a lone time to come.
