Bluefins in Fiji

The latest update from Fiji. We had a break in the weather and decided to go fishing. Low tide at about 1pm so we thought we would head out at about 9am and fish the falling tide. We are not 5 min out and my brother, who has had a run of bad luck lately, hooks a lovely Bluefin Trevally on 15lb braid. Boy can they put up a fight. Not nearly as dirty as the GT’s, it is more of a mid water fight lots of high powered runs until exhaustion sets in. Right after that fish the wind kicked up but we fished on to no avail. One or two lookers but no takers. On our way home the wind died and the bay flattened out for a beautiful, if not very fishy end.
