Went out today put the lures in couple of kms past Richards rock lots of skippies and albies around trolled out towards the hook. Saw free jumping mako and a rather large whale breach well out of the water amazing sight. Lots of activity in the morning birds etc but no stick beaks, headed out to the 300 metre mark and watched the boat next to us hook into a rather large blue jumped right by the boat. Things went quiet in the avo trolled back past the hook and saw a free jumper at the 140m mark so they are certainly around. Dad got the yellow fin yesterday was around 20kg can assure you it was very tasty...
