Ambition Charters Offshore Fishing Report 9th. August' 16

I spent the week-end fishing for Mako's along with 27 other boats. To say that the Mako's were missing would be an understatement mostly because the water was a warmer than usual on the wider grounds. Those who tried in closer on Sunday, around the 12 Mile, had much more luck though even then the results were not good. I don't have the official results but there was only one Mako weighed and maybe 11 tagged. Interestingly on Sunday there were 5 Tiger sharks tagged and one good sized one lost after a long fight, strange goings on for this time of year. We even had a Marlin free jumping along our burley slick, guess it was wondering what it had got itself into.

On Monday we went to the Mountain bottom fishing and had no trouble bagging out on Gem fish and managed a Silver Dory but unfortunately couldn't find a Blue Eye, the Gemmies are just too aggressive. One of the guys with us, I can't remember his name, was dead keen on jigging and managed a Gem Fish and a Silver Dory. It may be a lot of fun jigging on Browns but it is hard work - a great way to get fit and not for the faint hearted.

After finishing up at Browns we went wider looking for Tuna. After finding a likely bit of feature we started cubing and deep jigging. The first drop produced a really good Albacore of around 13 Kg. and a little later another fell to a cube. So after a full on day all had caught fish and were tired - it was time to start the 2 hour run home.

Tight lines,

Introducing both novice and experienced fisherpeople to the excitement of Game Fishing.
