Nicky Momberg Yellowfin Tuna 77.7kg makes it two in a row off Shelley Beach
Nicky Momberg Yellowfin Tuna 77.7kg makes it two in a row off Shelley Beach.
Unbelievably another outsized yellowfin tuna by Nicky Momberg on Nitro. And I get the very rare chance of apologising for reporting that it was a charter boat that caught yesterday’s fish of 101kg’s. Nope, it was Nicky Momberg! On the good ship NITRO.
Congratulations again to Nicky and his crew.
Thank you to Craig from The Tackle Box in Shelley Beach for the photos and weight details of today’s remarkable yellowfin. Maybe the lucky boat Nitro will go out tomorrow and make it three in a row. A hat-trick that no-one would believe without photos that’s for sure!
And here is yesterdays groundbreaking fish all over again…crew in full glory…historical moment for all Shelley Beach deep sea anglers…dreams do come true.
Here’s to hoping these fish might have recently made KZN a place to come and show off their size. These are huge fish, double the size of anything anyones come with before.
At this stage, these fish were reportedly caught on lures trolled with 80lb gear.
This in from Nicky Momberg, on the fish he caught the day before – the 101kg yellowfin tuna…
“Thanks a lot. Was on a Pulsator Marlin Magnet Kona and we got it on the 1800 meter mark. Took 1h:45 to land it. Was my dreamfish for the past 10 years I’ve been fishing there and knew the fish would be there one day”
You can get your Pulsator tackle right there at the base. The Tackle Box have the best location ever for a tackle shop. Loads of parking. And just on the hill overlooking the launch, as you turn in from the north entrance. Signs everywhere.
