I am counting down the days to summer in anticipation of trips with Justin to rival some of those that I experienced last summer. Roll on the warmer weather.Of my twenty three or so trips with him two memorable outings were:
1. A calm warm day when the striped tuna hit town. Justin chased them frantically to position the boat so that I could have a shot at them. I managed to land eleven of these speedsters on my six weight. They were taking eye flies. No time for lunch; just non-stop action!
2. The smoke from the bush fires descended over the ocean and I could not see the shore from 1 kilometre away. The ocean was like a mill pond. Five or more kingfish followed my popper on each cast as it gurgled and blurted along the surface near the edge of the reef. Three were landed and one was lost. The addition of tailor and salmon made for a great day. Interestingly, the kingfish were taking cicadas escaping the bushfire as they hit the water's surface.
Roll on summer!Glenn Eggleton,
The site looks great, makes me want to go fishing!
Will look forward to when we next fish againDean Butler - world renowned fishing guide, writer,
Thanks again for a great day on the water. I know a lot of fishing guides and you're at the top of the heap.
Some days are tougher than others and you worked hard and showed your skill to put me on the fish. I hope I never forget the beautiful scenery of Broken Bay and the fun we had catching my first Salmon.
Tight Lines,Matt Mahoney - U.S.A,
Just thought that we'd drop you a line to thank for a great day fishing.
Even though it was the middle of winter you were still able to find us some great action around beautiful Pittwater. Schooling salmon and taylor, horse-sized bream, flathead and a look in from a NICE "kingy".
Marcus had an absolutely fantastic time. He's looking forward to our next expedition so that he can try out some of the techniques you showed him.
Marcus' 12th birthday is in October and he wants to celebrate it by having a day targetting that kingfish which got away.
We'll be in contact soon to arrange the day.
Cheers and Tight LinesAdrian Lucchese,
