What a difference a week makes

What a difference a week makes

Fished last Sunday for mountains of rain and not many fish. Fished yesterday in the monthly tournament for a much better result). Hooked up a barracuda before I even had all lines out (ended up winning me second place in that category). About 15 minutes later I hooked up a solid saily and another barracuda. The sailfish was awesome fun and took out second place overall in the tournament. I also landed a 15kg wahoo (my PB) (and two slightly smaller ones) - missed out on second place by 1kg. Also landed a nice mahi that missed out on a prize by half a kg. All in all I had a great day with about $100 of prize money left over after expenses (fuel and registration).

Rain

It rained pretty good from about 12-4pm. To make things worse I didn't catch a fish during that time. A couple of quality fish would have eased the pain the shivering was causing. The beer eased the pain at the weigh in.

Boat

It's a 32 footer. Fibreglass, open (with bimini that never gets put up this time of year) and a single 130hp Honda. Rides the swells really well and heaps of room to land/store the fish.
