The Wagaitear - August 201413 On the hook with JAMES ARRATTA What a month it has been with fish landed everywhere. July produced definitely some of the best fishing this year off the land and in the boat, with plenty of tuna and mackerel cruising into the harbour willing to eat anything you put in their face. The jetty was definitely the best place to be fishing land based with regular mackerel and tuna being caught with the occasional queenie and trevally mixed in with them. They have mostly being caught on live bait with the occasional tuna on lure. Its been all cheers for me throughout the month landing three tuna and being the only local to land a tuna off the jetty this year. Although I failed to land a big mackerel, I still had the thrill of hooking up onto some absolute monsters. With August in full swing Ill definitely be hoping to land one of these elusive 15kg Spanish mackerel, if it is anything like July was, we are in for some mighty good fishing off the land and in the boat. Until next time rods in hands, James Arratta. James with a cracking long tail tuna at the jetty.
