Cairns delivery & fishing report Sept 2013!

A happy Peter Jenyns and customer in Cairns after a great few days of weather and fishing!

Just like the whales, this time of year sees another migration of sorts occur, owners moving their boats north for a reef holiday, and a few of my good customers asked me to join them! The most recent trip was moving the 35 Caribbean Tsukiji to Cairns for the heavy tackle marlin fishing season.  The weather was unbelievable with ‘glass out’ conditions just about all the way, and we managed some fishing also! It is still a little early in the season for the black marlin, so standby for some more reports over the next couple of months when we return to Cairns. Click on the photos below to enlarge.






With glass out conditions off the famous light tackle marlin grounds of Cape Bowling Green, we couldn't resist a quick look around. Within minutes of arriving in the area I spotted birds and bait and we were hooked up. We got two small black marlin then pushed on to Townsville for the evening.

















Glass out conditions, marlin on and not another boat in sight - perfection.












Just before Cairns we fished some shoals I know looking to add some marlin bait to the freezers but had some fun of Trevally.












Arriving into Cairns we were impressed with the visiting superyacht VaVa. Google her - she is amazing.











With the owners son and a mutual mate joining us on the deck we headed out for a few days spearing, fishing and heavy tackle marlin fishing.












A Coral Trout I got on the spear on the outer reef.









Spanish Mackerel were on tap. What we couldn't eat got rigged as our large marlin baits.











A bit of shark fishing in the evenings is always entertaining.










We ate fish every meal!









Tongue Reef provided some lovely snorkeling.









Wahoo are a welcome by-catch when looking for a big marlin.
