Good Fishing Day
Friday 29th May 2009
Today an exciting days fishing and especially for Steve Peacock from beverley England with his fishing mate Steve Blundell also from Beverley England.
Both anglers had fished with us earlier in the week but decided to give it a go Trolling again today and Steve Peacock was amazed at the action on his rod. First a Blue Marlin was Raised and hooked up on Steve´s Lure . Steve Jumped into the Chair ready for the Action and the other anglers cleared the lines But unfortunately before Steve could get stuck into this Blue Marlin the fish through the Hook. Thats fishing folks!
Steve thought that his luck had gone with that fish BUT low and behold not long afterwards a Spearfish was raised and yes you guessed it Steves Rod screams off again. THis Time Steve successfully Played the fish to Tag & release.
The Spearfish was estimated at 30/35kilos 60/70lbs. WELL DONE TO STEVE PEACOCK.
Thank you to both Steve´s for choosing to fish with us.
Today Saw plenty of action in our waters with the various boats raising 5 Spearfish of which one was boated and one was Tag & released.
Also there was 5 reported contacts with Blue Marlin of which one boat Tag & released the fish.
