What a wonderful day at sea yesterday for Outrageous Fishing Charters !! pity about all the sharks, but plenty of Yellowfin Tuna around, with a wonderful catch for my guests Wian Van Dyk and his mates.... 3 yellows ranging 60- 75kg and another 9 younger fish 20-25kg class, some very happy guests...
Well done guys, great bunch...
Looks like the weather is great again next weekend, so book your tuna charter whilst these fish are still around...

Venue: St Lucia Beach
Bait: Frozen Shad
Remember I did a story on Andries that caught a Salmon yesterday after struggling for two days with the high seas that brought on strong side currents.
The curve ball to yesterdays story is that on day one of the two day struggle he was battling to get live bait to slide. Well Andries had a plan and his secret was to use a frozen Shad out of desperation to make the walk worth while.
Yes many people make a big fuss about Garrick fishing, but the fact is if you don't have bait in the water you ain't got a chance... Almost like Lotto.
Whether Andries is lucky or just plain stubborn is debatable, but the proof of the pudding is in the eating and two days in a row Andries landed a trophy fish.
Thanks for sharing with us Andries hope you get a few more ...

Venue: St Lucia Beach
Bait: Dead Shad
Andries has been battling for two days to proof the doom sayers wrong on fish availability in St Lucia.
Today he struggled to get a dead Shad in against the side wash. Eventually he says he lobbed the Shad with the sliding trace as far as he could with sinker flying a couple of yards futher.
He shook the slide until it disappeared under the white foam. The wait was well rewarded with this great catch of 12Kg. Definitely one of the best sizes to eat a Dusky Cob.
Andries chose St Lucia to retire in with his wife Dina and made an Investment in the late '80's by buying a Sectional Title flat from yours truly. Since the beach ban when most people Sold their property Andries and Dina stuck it out and still endeavor the Splendor St Lucia offers year after year.
Thanks for the support over the years Andries and Dina. Loyal retired residents.
