As is now obligatory I took the first week of April as one of my annual breaks from work. Purely for fishing.

A couple of friends came down from the UK who helped massively – spotting the fish, positioning the boat, unhooking the fish, taking some pictures etc – is all so much easier when done as a joint effort than it is on your own.

No secrets to how I fished this week… casting big poppers at the passing Blue Fin Tuna.

What a week it was…! Across the four days we fished I had multiple strikes, hooked up and pulled the hook on three of them, watch fish hit the popper so hard they simply launched it airborne, got so close we almost run over them, had one on the first cast of the morning, another on the second cast and in the end brought four to the boat, all but one released boat-side.

A little collated go-pro footage tells a better story than I might ever write…

And some pictures…

Here´s one chasing down the popper, a heart stopping moment…

And some more boatside pics of what must be the greatest fish in the sea. Black, Gold & Silver…
