As for Sailfish in June they should be around but best to as someone up there closer to the time.

As for gear you will have no dramas using TLD 20/25 10kg-15kg line.

You will have no problems using anything as long as the drag is smooth and can hold atleast 300-400mtrs 15kg mono. In a boat you can chase them down before being spooled. Alot of guys chase them in the gulf on 6-10kg gear using threadline reels like spheros and penn 8500

info!

I've done well during June/July/August at Tandabidi. First thing in the morning when it's a SE/E winds and fish behind the reef doing slight zig-zags in the 25-40m contour. 10-15kg Line class and reels with smooth lever drags as mentioned is the go.

Running skipping gardies with a circle hook in front and running soft head Richter pushers is good also. You can drop back a gardie to a raised fish that is playing around with your pusher also. Have 2 flapping bird/squid teasers is a must and work the ground just out from the passage South, once South the main reef disapears a bit and that's when i head North again!

All the best!

Thanks for the info Ryan, im looking forward to having a crack at a sailfish or marlin, But if it runs true to form i'll have to sit back and watch Jesse pull them in. i'll head down the shop one day and grab a few pushers, and im looking for a couple of rods which will do the job .talk to you then
