BOI Fishing Report - 20Apr23
Tyler Davey with his Marlin caught on 10kg line.
Its certainly looking like 2023 shall be called the year of the Easterlies. There has been little opportunity to get out on the boat due to the constant strong winds encountered. In the shop, there has been steady stream of people bemoaning cancelled charters or how they towed the boat hours up to Russell and have no chance of getting out in it!
However, the keen anglers have resorted to fishing from the beach and off the rocks and have been catching a few too!
Earlier this past fortnight the weather was more kind, and young Tyler Davey, fishing with his Dad, Adam, landed a 88kg striped marlin on 10kg line. 1 hour and 50 minutes of stand-up… a great effort! We managed to get a mornings fish in that same day and came home with some nice pannies.
At this stage, Sunday is looking great and what limited reports I have indicate that there are plenty of good fish in shallow.
