Sitges

Had a great day at sea yesterday with perfect weather and plenty fish. One of the first up was this nice and round small Bluefin…

Then by lots of fortune found a floating tree…

Was full of life below it and I had several Wreckfish, a new species for me…

Heres a couple…

I eventually moved on but before coming  home took a final drive past and sure enough the rod closest arched over for the biggest of the day…

Had a long day out in the sun today and it was great just to see these small Blue-Fin Tuna smashing into baitfish, flying out of the water, going totally airborne and cartwheeling through the sky.

They are the same age fish we caught earlier in the summer – but when they were much smaller – this is how fast they pack on the pounds and mature.

Best of all I caught four…!

Seen underwater they look to be made of the same liquid metal that Cyborgs are made of in  Terminator films…

Stayed close to the shore this morning as the sea was pretty choppy. Didn’t need to go far out anyway as there were fish, baitfish and seagulls diving everywhere. Had a few Scad and 20 to 30 of these chunky Amberjack, all caught by either  trolling or spinning small metal lures.

Back at it today making full use of the seasonally kind warm weather. Pulled 4 rods all with small Williamson trolling lures and got pretty much the same as last few outings…  Amberjack, small Tuna and a very lucky Dorado…

Impossible to catch for someone but thankfully not for me..! It has been scorching hot these last few days and there are plenty of nice sized Dorados about right now – I had 6-7 this morning along with some small Amberjack and small Tuna.

Tuna caught casting Halco Twistys. Dorado caught on small Williamson trolling lures, modified slightly, with double instead of single hook.

Got taught a fishing lesson from Ollie, with his biggest Pike to date. Yo-Zuri crystal minnow worked out top lure of the day…

No golfing for me…! To a detour on my way back from Worcester to what used to be my favourite peg on the North Wales coast. Same lure, a Lucky Craft Gunfish got them all…

Sitges – End of the summer

Daytime temperatures have dropped from the madness of August, its a little cloudy too but offshore the water temperatures usually peak at this time of year. Warm water means only one thing – Dorado – so I took a long anticipated run out this morning.

Sweetest spot was finding a floating log in the sea – fish lurk underneath floating debris like this. I just knew that as soon as I passed it one of the trolling lures would be hit and sure enough, the nearest rod arched over and the first Dorado of the day was on and soon in the boat.

Circled back and cast a small, silver Halco Twisty past the log, pulled it back fast and sure enough, first cast, I was on with the second one..!

Ended the day with three Dorado and dozens of Little Tuna and baby Bluefin Tuna – so many I lost count – and there ain´t many days I can say that…!
