Kaoha Nui everyone,

To quote my buddy: " party is over ", time to go back work !
Camp is set somewhere on the wild side of Nuku Hiva. The program for two days is: shorefishing, BBQ and sleeping… Tough life !

Only one obligation: catch Mahi for our BBQ and bonitoes for the typical Polynesian raw fish recipe.
To summarize: while Mahi and bonitoes were too easy to catch, big GTs just kicked our ass.
We only succeeded to land baby GTs from the rocks and a few teen GTs from the beach.

The big black ones were just unstoppable: when it's too big and too strong … It's just too big and too strong.

What a perfect way to start a new year ! I love my work !
Sinking Temple GUZZI, Slow sinking Temple LAMBO 240 and BALLISTA BULL 160 were the must have for these two days. But now, I must ask Randy to send me some more …
Only one regret: no YFT for the sashimi.

Rods : Temple Reef
  • Reefer 85-8 with Stella SW20000
  • Reefer 711-10 with Stella SW20000

Hot Lures :
  • Temple Reef GUZZI, LAMBO 240 and BALLISTA BULL 160.
  • Hammerhead Cherry Pie 180
  • Tiemco Salty Red Pepper Max

Next week : Gambiers Islands … Another kind of workdays.

Holy crap! Land based fishing at it's finest!
I agree, landbased game is impressive. Good job! Maybe you can encourage Randy to develop a landbased GT rod?
