When Work Stops Fishing

Up until Easter, I only had about two weekends completely off work, so work stops fishing trips from happening! Even the Australia Day long weekend, I had to work for the start of it. Here’s the only trips I could do for the first quarter of 2018: Australia Day Long Weekend Labour Day Long Weekend...

Bermagui in December 2017

It was a bit early in the season for marlin, but we made the trek to Bermagui in the middle of December 2017, for 10 days of fishing. It was a major birthday celebration, too, and so we had lots of our family and friends around us for the week. We also had the best weather that we’ve ever had on a trip to Bermgui – we were able to fish every day! We got lots of Kingfish, and lots of striped tuna, and even hooked one marlin! But we weren’t able......

Our Tuna Season 2017

The bluefin tuna season 2017 is as good as over, and we didn’t get to make the most of it. Between working more weekends, having higher boat loan repayments so our fuel budget is tight, the wind and weather being really squally throughout August, and then our boat having to go back to Sailfish HQ for repairs … we didn’t get to fish as much as we wanted. Here are some highlights, though: Multiple hook-ups: Port Fairy in June Hooking but losing a barrel: Bring on tuna season in 2018!...

Boat Catch

When I was at the Sydney Boat Show with the Sailfish guys, one of the biggest questions I was asked was if I could get the boat on and off the trailer by myself. Well, I can, and mostly because of the Boat Catch. The Sailfish S8 and Boat Catch are a match made in heaven. I have a wire attached to the latch on my Boat Catch, so I can undo it once I’ve started the motors. Then I can easily back the boat off the trailer. When I reverse the......

Tomikin

After fishing the Canberra Yellowfin Competition in May 2017 from Bermagui, we then retired to The Moorings at Tomikin for the rest of the week. We had previously fished out of Bateman’s Bay, but we actually hadn’t heard of Tomikin before coming across the accommodation at The Moorings. We were somewhat delighted with what Tomikin had to offer, although we were too skeptical about the boat ramp at Tomikin itself. It was very shallow, and had a fair way up the river to go before getting to the ocean. The boat ramp......

Sailfish S8 Layout

We have now had out Sailfish S8 for four months, and we have done over 100 hours on the engines, so we have had time to work out a few things. We have made a couple of alterations to the Sailfish S8, and would only do a few things differently if we ordered the boat over again. This video runs through how we have set the Sailfish S8 up for how we fish, and generally how happy we are with the boat!...
