Offshore, sea surface temps have been creeping upwards and we have seen our first marlin through the Club with a 107kg stripey to the fellas off the trailer boat Renegade.

The All About Construction Tournament last weekend when well with a mix of conditions over the three days. Overall tough fishing for the blue water species although Ocean Warrior managed a 30,6kg Club record Short billed Spearfish and the Aquarius team hit pay dirt going 4 from 4 on yellowfin all around that 20kg mark. Thanks to Wet & Forget, Maui Ocean Products and Duncan Reality for the great support through this one.

In the harbour, the change of light fishing has really improved after the new moon, with bait and berley efforts in the shallows rewarding those who are getting out, the best tides have been the last 2.5 hrs of the incoming, and channel fishing 1-2 hrs before low. Best baits pillies and blue mackerel fished on long straylines.

Next weekend is the Bridgeman Concrete fishNchicks Tournament, briefing is Thursday 9th Feb. Awesome live entertainment on Saturday night and don’t forget your fancy dress. Iphones, cash and wicked prizes to be won. Ladies don’t miss out on this one; Details and Entries from the Club or
