Our two 32ft EdgeWater sportfishing vessels are the perfect platform to hit the deep reefs and seamounts for some serious jigging for big dogtooth tuna or ideal for casting poppers to big GT’s holding tight into bommies and steep cliff face washes.

“Once we got it closer to the boat, we realised why, as it was being chasesd by a big ‘shark’ so I worked extra hard to get it to the boat, fast! However soon we realised it wasn’t a shark that was it but an absolute tank of a doggie easily 90kg plus. This monster doggie was trying to eat the ‘smaller’ one that was about 35kg! To put it into scale only the tail and head was sticking out either side of the bigger dogtooth’s mouth!!” Nick Hamilton Smith
