The previous day the same boat had caught a 200lb Marlin so there was a fair chance of getting something.
The equipment being used was just about as sturdy as you could buy with line almost as strong as wire and 6 foot rods with very little give in them. The bait was also interesting too, a flying fish threaded onto a lure with a frilly and colourful piece covering the head. These baits were then cast out, two held down with down riggers and two up in the air allowing the baits to skim across the surface. This looked great to watch and the suspense was unbelievable.
The skipper took us out into deeper water and was searching for shoals of flying fish. When we found these shoals we were treated to and unbelievable display of fish trying to escape from the boat through the air. Something you have to see!
