Awesome fish Tony. I remember

Awesome fish Tony. I remember last week talking to you about needing to crack a Trevalla.

Btw, you should also crack a ruby, broady and winter blue marlin. (Can I expect results next week?)

Gonna have a crack at guessing the depth: >100m? Am I right? lol

Nice deepwater fish. Looks like a reasonable day out on the water as well.

I may have been the closest

to mr swordfish than ive ever been yesterday. We were far enough out! But i did hook and drop something with serious power. Emptied the electric and headed for the horizon. At no point did we gain anything. Ended sadly with a leader bust off at the swivel. Who knows what it was?? Shark, ray, swordy, Colins class?

I guess you could claim it nearly...... . Enough time spent out there and you'll crack it I have no doubt.

congrats Tony, plenty of time

congrats Tony, plenty of time and fuel has gone into that one. Did you find a loner or some potential holding ground?

Pity about the unstoppable too, it always irks my when I lose a good fish I don't get to ID first.

yeah Tim

Miles of very little then the sounder lights up. We had 2 good fish and headed for home.

 

Never noticed that conrad! It didnt look like it, probly damage from the rig.

 

Tasted great too! It had a creamy taste to the flesh with a unique flavour.

Looks like the deep was firing yesterday!

Thu, 2011-08-11 20:07

I would recomend seeing taylor marine harro. Depending on what hull you have will determin what transducer to run. I have the dual set up through a splitter box. Works well through to the 600's

Well done !

Did your sounder struggle a bit to hold bottom in the sloppy conditions ? I was in the 320 -420m mark yesterday, plenty of activity but only managed the green eyes and a 6ft whaler shark

 Great fish Tony! Got to be one of the best tasting fish I've ever eaten, almost melts in your mouth! Would love to have seen that one come to the surface.

running with it was good but running back over the marks was difficult. The trevalla was beast! It took over 15 minutes to the boat. Solid runs back to the bottom. Fought all the way. The tanacom was well toastie after, which makes me think a command 8-10 could be next?
