Anglers Craig and Nick continued their fishing adventures aboard Bite Me starting off day 3 with the medium tackle trolling gear. With a whole variety of species around at the moment we were hedging our bets with marlin lures on 50lb stand-up gear on the riggers and lighter tackle set off the corners trolling Halco Laser Pros for yellowfin and dolphinfish.
Then the Mold Craft Wide Range on the long rigger got swiped at...and then grabbed, loading up with a mystery fish that didn't jump at first. 30 seconds later we found out what it was when a surprise out of season Pacific Sailfish began leaping about behind the boat.
A little out-classed on 50lb gear Nick soon had the sail boatside for a Tag shot, photos and quick release.
A quiet afternoon trolling so we swung into the reef to have a quick popper at the GTs and get limbered up for the next day of full-on GT Popping....
