Missed 3 days due to weather and ran out today in heavy conditions forecast to improve - heavy morning that got much better resulting in a nice blue release and lost another very good blue so 1-2 and a good forecast for tomorrow. Pics and full report when time allows!

[size=1.35em] Had a day of missed opportunities yesterday but he wheel turns fortunately and we had the action today. Found some good fish on the inside and had a good blue on early this morning, gave an awesome show, unfortunately pulled hooks well into the fight. Hooked and released a 400lb black and had a window shopping blue in the spread soon after.Some Dorado action in between too - great day on a hot sunny flat sea -[/size][/color]BONUS! :billf: :billf: :billf:

Another great day at sea with Dale on Baluga on 20lb line. Released a stripe that was a junior record but deemed not big enough to cull. Going 1-3 on the critters and missed a nice fish on the shotgun, not sure if black or blue. All boats getting action and better weather the next 3 days so hopefully a record or two. Pics when we get a chance!

Another SA Junior record for Dale Leenstra with Mr RMC off Baluga! Have so much to report on but the body is nackered. Lost a very nice fish this morning and connected again this afternoon landing a black that tail wrapped and died. Had to dead lift it in rough sea on 20lb from 180m down in strong current - not do able normally but somehow we got it done. Wasnt the size we were looking for but its a lot bigger than previous record so for now it will do!

What a classic end to 2013! Went out for the last day of the year and an overnight broadbill trip that had us releasing what I am sure were the last fish in SA for 2013 released at 4.45 and 5.30 pm. Had a bumpy night without success and dropped the first marlin of 2014 before the sun had peeped over the horizon. Released one later probably the second caught in 2014 as we were pipped to the post by Cracker Man. Ended the day somewhat exhausted but with 3 tags and a great start to 2014. Happy New Year everybody! ps awesome sight of all the flares from out on the ocean - very different!

Another great day on the water with sunshine and flat seas.
Had a very sad radio message after releasing a nice stripey that free jumped a way  off to show us her position, turned and followed and hooked up - sure she was waving my good friend and mentor Takkie Fourie goodbye. He passed away suddenly today and he will be remembered with every fish I catch from now onwards. Thank you my friend for introducing me to this great sport and for being the man you were. For the countless days of happiness we shared on the water - you will be sorely missed.
To Tina, Daniell, Salomy and Karen my deepest condolences.
RIP my friend!

What a day on the ocean today! Flat calm hot and fish biting! Released a nice 350 lb blue and dropped another shortly after. All boats had some action on a belter day - gotta love it!
