Dreaming of!

Just descussing fishing at work with a few boys and got talking about what fish they havent caught yet. Some pretty sweet answers to. Just thought id ask a few of the fishwrecked boys about there dream fish they would love to land, mine would have to be a big marlin. I have only landed one but he was only very small at rowley shoals. Come on whats yours? Think hard first you only get one!

For me I really really want a big metro YFT this year (in case I can't get my sailfish and marlin in July when I head to Exxy)

Believe it or not, a spanish mack is eluding me, up north, metro, where ever. Caught broadbars, narrows, greys, but never a spaniard and everytime I've hooked one something goes wrong. They learn to fly and spit hooks or I get them on the mono and bite through. Dunno what it is, but I'm going to settle a score soon.

Other than that, a saily is next big thing on my 'to catch' list.

Thu, 2007-01-25 17:20

A BIG tuna on a Jig or Popper, hell on anything, just havent got a yellowfin yet. But first...a decent size DHUIE !! Biggest for me so far has been 55cm and thats the 2nd legal size one so far!!

Yeah a big Dogtooth Tuna would be nice as well. Sorry Adam an oversize Gardie is just not my kind of fish...lol =)

Apart from the Dhuie, the Tunas must be caught on lure, be it jig or popper.

Suprisingly Ive knocked of a few of mine recently with a big Pink snapper and a big Dhuy. That was all I had on my list for a long time so next I would have to agree with Andy on a big Metro Yellow fin Tuna.So if you need a partner in crime for the mission Let me now Andy.

You me and Honsu have to get ourselves out there in a big way. I feel the need for speed!!!

I think I can help Honsu with the dhui target, but I need help with the YFT target.

Marlin and a thumping GT

Thu, 2007-01-25 19:19

Have seen a mate at Rowley Shoals catch a big GT but they still elude me. A good marlin would be the ultimate.
Have caught pretty good YFT's and they are the hardest fish I have ever caught. Brace yourself if a good one comes along fellows. Tuff Tuff Tuff!!!

Thu, 2007-01-25 19:21

Sounds good. Im heading out tommoro in my boat with Steve(Bouttime) to try get into some small tuna as practice for the main event. Then heading out again with Adam Sunday for more practice so I should be a full bottle on them ( thats the theory anyway). So I think between You me and Honsu we should be able to take them. Im ready when you are captain.

Thu, 2007-01-25 20:31

I hooked a decent one in kalbarri to about 25kg on 6kg trilene. But it took me about 2.5 hours to get to the boat. I wouldnt recommend chasing big tuna on light gear. Not unless the other guys in the boat dont mind chasing down a tuna for hours on end.

Nice

Thu, 2007-01-25 20:48

That's a good fish on 6kg string. Unfortunately the gentlemen in brown overcoats often finish protracted yft fights prematurely.

15 would be heaps Honsu.

15 would be heaps Honsu. remember the big makies that Ryan and co nabbed out there last season, the biggest gear they were using was 15. IIRC the big mack that Nick nabbed was on 8, with a similar fish to Ryan on 10

Other Fish

I'll just like to catch a nice 18-21 yr old blonde with nice norks and expensive car....just one last time...pleeeeeease

but my rod is busted and my tackle technique has suffered since passing the big 40.

Tips from the young blokes welcomed

Fri, 2007-01-26 07:44

I would use 15kg Trilene myself. I find it to be a good strong mono line with heaps of stretch that seems to take the shock of the enitial hit and run. I have used others and had them bust of as soon as the fish hit.
