Maiden Voyage at Tofo

Fish Perspective
The fish perspective of our new boat...

Our new boat as arrived in Tofo!

Centre console magic with twin 60hp Mariners!

First trip out and we got up close and personal with a huge whale shark.

A few minutes later and the Rapala X-Rap 9 went away with a neat little kingfish at Praia da Rocha.

Some large Cobia were hunting off the whale sharks but we never got a hit. Normally it’s straight away when they are in this mode.

The water has been a bit cold, around 22 to 23 degrees, and with the whale sharks going berserk (sometimes 10 or 20 in one spot), we just need a nice front to warm things up.
