Norway based angler Maciej Rogowiecki from Eventur Travel and his crew visited Trees & Fishes recently, spending a week popping and jigging many of our deeper seamounts and offshore reefs. Maciej said that fishing our waters is like in Norway but only about 50 times faster…lol
When fishing in depths of 100m+, nothing beats that feeling of dripping in sweat, muscles burning and the urge to never give up. The dogtooth’s are simply unstoppable even these anglers 250lb line could not sustain the strength of these beast. The ones that we managed to be pulled off the reef were about 15-20kg, grows up can reach up to over 100kg.
What resulted were some nice GT’s ranging from18kg to 36kg mixed in with all round surface variety including a shark Attack for Matt who pulled off a great fight against a 120kg+ shark yesterday on light gear!
