A Long Time Between Drinks

Engine trouble, rough weather and pure bad luck have kept us waiting for a big fish. We've had our share of smaller ones but until today the big girls have eluded us.

Today was the day and the wait was worth it.

We had just started off #5 Ribbon Reef at around 1:00pm today when the big girl - around 950lb - (and her smaller companion) turned up. She grabbed the big bait and took off, only to drop it after a short run. Smart work by Andy on the handline saw her back again, and this time she didn’t mess around. With the circle hook planted firmly in the corner of her jaw, she set off for the horizon with Capt Jared in hot pursuit. After a great fight we had her to the boat within 20 minutes, tagged, released and off to fight another day.

Hopefully, more to come and soon...
