With ‘Black Marlin’ safely down in Perth for the wet season, it seems a good time to wrap up the 2013 sailfish season. Amongst countless sportfishing charters, we spent 37 days targeting billfish and came up with 212… made up of 190 Sailfish and 22 Black Marlin. This gives an average of 5.7 billfish per day!
Best day on the water produced 30 Sails and 3 Marlin, which was during a red hot run of fish throughout October.
Sportfishing was consistent all season with acres of Longtail Tuna, Queenfish and solid GT’s. Good numbers of Spanish Mackerel were always on hand with plenty of larger fish in the 120-140cm range and a few nice Cobia fell victim to surface lures and soft plastics.
2014 is only just around the corner so its time to start planning the years fishing trips! If casting poppers at schools of busting up Queenies and GT’s, Trolling for Mackies or switch baiting pods of Sailfish and Black Marlin gets your attention, then get in contact now to discuss the options and secure a booking!
