Turn­ing Up Ev­ery­where

Marlin - - BEFORE THE STRIKE -

While the big­gest swordfish are turn­ing up in Vic­to­ria and Tasmania, with the in­creased ef­fort, they are pop­ping up all over the place. There have been a rea­son­able num­ber be­ing caught off Syd­ney, and early in­di­ca­tions are show­ing that an­glers are get­ting a bite ev­ery day or so. Now th­ese fish are nowhere near the size of the fish down south, av­er­ag­ing around 100 pounds.

It is a sim­i­lar case over on the west coast, where the Halco Tackle boys pro­duced the goods in the Rot­tnest Trench on their first at­tempt. Sim­i­lar-size fish un­der 100 pounds have been caught up out of Ex­mouth as well. What is re­ally in­ter­est­ing is that a 386-pound fish was re­cently caught by Jethro Bon­nitcha on his first day­time at­tempt. Again, it was in the south­ern cor­ner of the state out of Al­bany.
