Savusavu Wahoo

We haven't had very favourable weather over the last few week to get out to fish.

A week Friday we thought we would give it a try as the guest was departing on Saturday so really wanted to get out.

We left the dock about 10am as it seemed to have calmed down a little, got to the entrance & tried to head out yonder!  that was a mistake so we came back inside.

Fortunately for us about a hour into our sweeps out from the lighthouse we had a strike, we ended up with a nice sized Wahoo, (weighed in at 18.5kg) & boy we were lucky as the hook on the rapala was only just holding into the fish.

Nothing much was around so headed in early as the fish was too big to have the lid down to keep it cold, & we didn't want it too spoil.

This week we managed to get out pass the lighthouse, nothing much was working when we got to the mount so started to look for birds.  We ended up with 3 yellowfin Tuna, but covered a lot of miles, it was still pretty rough so headed back in, at least they have dinner.
