Out in the sun on a really calm sea this morning. More Bonito & Little Tuna around, all taken on small Williamson trolling lures…

Has been extremely windy these last few days but I managed to get out this morning. Sea clarity was quite poor and I couldn’t find any Dorado but did manage this stonking Bonito which was too long to fit in the fish box. Gonna eat well tonight…

Tom came out with us today but boy did we have an angry sea. Holding the boat steady and catching anything in 2M swells proved to be pretty tough but we did well I guess and came back with fish on the deck. Luck certainly had a part in it…

October. By far the best month for both the weather and the fishing here in the Western side of the Meditteranean.

Slipped out for a quick session this morning (work in the afternoon) and just lost count. As I recall… Amberjack no more than 500m from the harbour entrance, a substantial 6lb Dorado next around the 1km mark then out at sea too many small Tuna to remember. Bonito, Little Tuna, Small BFT everywhere.

Easy. Just like this…

Tomorrow is not a half day at work. Its a full day off work. Lets see what comes…

Out again this morning but not in the calmest of seas. Pulled around some small Williamson trolling lures which tempted 6 Amberjack & a solitary Mackerel. Also tempted 4 Dorado casting small jigs at buoys & floating debris. They’re getting bigger..!

A pleasure to be out on the boat this morning as September & October really are the nicest months of the year. Found the sea to be alive with Dorado everywhere there was structure, debris, buoys etc.

Sometimes I can catch them…

Sometimes the pleasure is all about the acrobatics and watching them escape…

In the next month these should almost double in size, from 1.5 to 3kgs. Roll on October…!

Summer is drawing to a close over here, its mid September now but the fishing is hopefully coming to a peak. Took a ride out this morning and along with a couple of small Tuna the Dorado are here – not big yet but as we get to the end of October they should be twice the size. All on the same lure today – a multi coloured Williamson…

Adlington Canal

A visit home isn’t really complete without a trip down to the canal. Whilst everyone was asleep on Sunday morning I was getting in some practice for Cuba and manged three of these freshwater Barracuda on a small, boring coloured Rapala X-Rap. In a weeks time hope to be telling tales of their saltwater cousins…
