No Fishing this week due to rough seas and strong winds.
Maintenance was the order of the week, and a homemade drop net to catch some livebait.
Only caught one livebait the other evening but when I hooked it and cast it out it got nailed as it hit the surface by a nice Big Eye Trevally, so hence the drop net. Watch this space. Will post results of livebait catch and what happens when you put one down around a FAD.

Early morning start today produced 1 Yellowfin, lost 3. Highlight was hooking a nice Yellowfin on a Jig, getting it to the boat and seeing a shark coming up to take it. In my panic i muscled the Yellowfin to the surface grabbed the leader and tried to pull it into the boat whilst the shark was coming in for his breakfast. As i lifted the fish it came of the hook. As the yellowfin swam away i looked over to see a large Wahoo as well swimming down into the depths. On inspection of the jig, the weight of he fish had straightened the hook. Gotta upgrade some hooks me thinks.
