Plenty of yellowtail kingfish offshore today, only targeted light game but both marlin and mako's were going crazy along the continental shelf for the first day of a game fishing tournament. Hooked an unusual stingray which was almost silver on its top side, didn't think to get a photo as it was a case of get the hook out and release while still in the water. It was a hefty stinger most likely over 50kg but you really need to be careful as they can whip the sting in front of their heads depending on species. Dead mako washed ashore this week with a stingray spine through its head.

Cleaned the boat, filleted a few fish and heading down the beach to try and get a friend staying with us hooked into something that will stretch his arms. Back offshore again tomorrow when the weather holds.

They wouldn't have their pic's taken as the fish weren't worthy!!!!!.. Just gotten in from the beach session which was non stop action, with a few sharks and a cracking 80cm salmon. Last cast for the evening resulted in a solid little bronze, will get a few pics of the camera after tomorrows boat session.
