Casa Barry Sailfish and other stories…

Chad of Casa Barry in Tofo, skippering Springer Too, the last few months, has had a bumper hit of billfish. Out of 18 hookups, he has boated 4, the rest released, or forced released. Sailies and marlin…that’s great going…keep up the releasing Chad!

As you can see from the last few posts, made by Elvis in the Tofo market, the fishing has been great. Big yellowfin and wahoo interspersed with non-shoal size couta, and tropical yellowtail…make up the daily catches.

The weather is wild but with the fishing so good, it’s up and at it for the Tofo fishing community…

GT´s stand for GIANT Kingfish…

Can you just imagine the sound of the line being ripped off the reel here? (C) Rato

The boys were well under gunned for most of the GT´s we encountered. The tackle they brought was way to light to stop those fish from reefing us and all of the really big Giant Kingfish we hooked were just to strong to stop!!! The boys did however release some decent fish up to about 12 kg on poppers and stick baits as well as some other species.
