    Day 5 – Dropped a fish

    After covering so many sea miles yesterday, today was pretty tough (sore hands, legs and back) and the lack of wind didn’t help. I headed out to troll behind the reef and later in the morning managed to pick up a slight breeze.

    After hitting the same Rapala lure (as caught the Spanish Mack yesterday) quite hard, I managed to land a beautiful coral trout. Although not a scoring fish for the competition, it was perfect for dinner, or at least it would have been had I not dropped it overboard along with the lip grips attached. That’s fishing I guess…

    Tomorrow is presentation day after which I’ll post a wrap up if the entire competition, including photos of the winning team. Following that will be a compilation of 4 days head can footage.

    Cheers for now.

    Day 4: Talofa – Samoan for the Aussie GDay

    Talofa (Samoan for the Aussie G’Day),

    As I write this I’ve peddled (no wind again today) 25 nautical miles in search of a fish, and as I’ve done that 9 hours straight I’ll give you all a quick summary form.

    Caught a 4.63kg Spanish Mackerel this morning. It bent the Hobie rod holder flat but I had the reel in a safety strap so it was fine. Put up a great fight, put me to the test, and caught the lot on head cam to be included in the final wrap up.

    Chased some birds after that and started casting at a decent lot of Tuna, with one great follow and a decent strike but no hook up.

    Had 6 dolphins swimming across the bow which was absolutely sensational, particularly as I’d just weathered 2 hours of storm and couldn’t see land for that time coupled with a 2 meter swell.

    Two lost fish, unfortunately there was little wind again today which meant I had to rely on peddle power for most of the day, which is a realistic 3 knots. The slower speed definitely impacts on hook setting for pelagics.

    A long day, 4 more Marlin caught and brought in for the big boys, a few more tagged. Tomorrow is a new day, and the final day of the tournament.

    There is lots of interest in the kayak, and when I tell people I troll the 1000 foot drop off in the Pacific Ocean I get some pretty strange looks, and that’s fine by me. I love this adventure, even if my hands now look like those if a 95 year old…

     

    Cheers for now.

    The ofFISHal Angler

    Day 3: Ladies Day

    Today was the traditional ladies time on the water, and with a 65kg Blue Marlin and a decent Masi-Masi the ladies sure turned it on. All teams were dressed in a variety of costumes and what started out as a rainy and stormy morning finished as another day in the sun.

    Tomorrow the big competition continues with the third out of four days, and I’ve got a strategy which should (hopefully) lead me to landing a fish. The forecast is for mild winds, and that’s all I need to avoid 9 hours of peddling and reach a decent troll speed.

    Tonight at the weigh station waterside on Apia Harbour was another family friendly and pleasant night. The business end of the competition really starts tomorrow, and The ofFISHal Angler won’t give up until at least one scoring fish is hauled aboard the Hobie Tandem Adventure Island.

    Cheers for now.

    The ofFISHal Angler

    Day 2 – Took the Hobie Adventure Island to new limits but no fish yet

    As Day 2 kicked off I managed to pick up a great breeze which took me under sail all the way to 5 mile reef. Yesterday that took me just under 2 hours to peddle. However unlike yesterday, there were no fish showing on the sounder so I decided to keep going beyond the 1000ft drop off, and ended up 25kms off the mainland in some of the deepest and bluest water I’ve ever seen.

    Samoa Fishing Comp

    The fishing today was tough, I saw plenty of bird and bait action, but the wind dropped off completely about 10am which meant I could only get 3 knots peddling speed, unfortunately not enough for pelagic trolling speed.

    After 7 hours straight peddling, I did something a bit off centre, and set course for a brewing storm to catch the wind and cool off. An hour later I was legs crossed on the peddles, and lying back cruising a comfortable and cool 7 knots with three lines out on the troll.

    Back at the club there was a heap of interest in the kayak, word is getting around now that some crazy Aussie is actually entered into the competition as a kayak.

    Samoa Fishing Comp 3Samoa Fishing Comp 4

    At the weigh in, one boat brought home a 125kg Blue Marlin, a sensational catch. Others scored some big Masi-Masi and one boat landed a 65kg Yellowfin Tuna. For 33 boats (including the kayak), not a huge catch but definitley some huge game fish.

    Tomorrow is ladies day, and that’s great as my legs are very sore and some of the electronics and other gear on the kayak need some maintenance. Thursday we return, and my quest to land one decent fish that can be classed as a game fish, from the kayak, will resume….

    Cheers for now.
