We went out from Ocean Reef this morning to some spots on the back of Direction Bank. We found a nice lump which produces a 55cm dhuie first up, which we release as it was in good condition and things were looking promising. Next fish were a couple of baldchin groper and venus tuskfish off a nice coral bombie which had mark smiling. Shortly after something huge was hooked and immediately called for a big dhuie from the runs.. I hooked up onto something at the same time until things started getting tangled and a mess was had, big fish gone. I caught a nice little blackass and venus tuskfish on a snapback shortly afterwards. We then moved to a 15 meter rise where caught a few sea sweep and fiddler sharks, we then moved wider. Out at the 65m mark we caught a nice queen snapper and a few rock cod and wrasse. After I landed a monster ray it went quiet so we tried trolling back in closer without any luck. Huge amounts of coral spawns out there at the moment in the current lines. Moving back to dhufish alley I picked up another small blackass and dhufish which I released successfully. One more scorpion cod was landed and we decided to call it a day. Will be out there again tomorrow on the 5 fathom looking for some tuna and snapback action!
