Yes, well done indeed. Especially given the conditions, it was terrible down here today as well, black northerly. I didnt go out today, first time for a while. :D

Couta, how 'bout more story? When I saw the pic of the sea, it looked like it was just about to splash out of the screen. Certainly not good conditions. Then the next pic is a heap of very hard hitting fish. :shock: I'd be interested in hearing how ya managed to get out and stop from being blown of the yak, how ya caught the fish, how ya exit onto the beach was, etc.

the tailor was around 45cm.caught all the fish trolling two halco lazer pros.it was a bit of efort as there seemed to be a shoal of the bonitos out there so a lot of the time it was double up on the rods,so had to fight with two rods and try not to get blown of the yak.coming in was a breeze as i caught a wave from out deep and rode it all the way in

Awesome! Blowing a gale. Holding on to yak to stop from being blown out (one hand), holding on to paddle so it won't blow away (another hand), holding on to rod #1 and fighting solid fish (2 hands), holding on to rod #2 and fighting solid fish (2 hands) and having landing net at ready (1 hand). That is 7 hands and you may have been having a ciggy as well! Yup, as you say, bit of an effort. :roll: Would have been great to watch the action.

Meoldchina: When you say 10 x 6/0 ganged hooks, you are assuming he is only going to use one of his bonito at a time - he may use 2 bonito and thus need a gang of 20 hooks. :D
