Strong release

Mon, 2007-11-05 08:21

Would give this fish a very high chance of survival.

Brought up slowly (check the pic, clear eyes no visible barotrauma)

Had quite a big run around at the surface indicating plenty of life

Brought onboard gently with bogas and support under the tail section

Quickly tagged on a wet tag mat

two quick photos

Over the side to swim a bit and get some oxygen in its system again using the bogas

Release weight inserted boatside

Then plummetted to the bottom, a couple of quick tugs (of the line) and hey presto back in his home territory.

Hopefully I will catch her again one day.



Cheers

Andy Mac

Cleaned Out

Mon, 2007-11-05 11:02

We basically cleaned out all the tags I had left.

Total for the day was
1 Dhu
2 Blackbum
5 Pinkys
All were legal fish too.

That Dhu was pretty active. Was splashing around on the surface like a tuna does.
