Short trip and tight lines on McFire

Offshore Fishing Report – Durban

The morning was stunning and perfect for a short 4 hour trip on McFire. Once warm blue water was found it was not very long before the first reel sang and there was a nice Dorado on board. It soon after there was a Yellowfin Tuna on board. Once back in the greener water things went quiet and it was time to head for port. Sometimes a short trip is all one needs to just get out there breath in some fresh air in and get some quick fishing in, then head back de-stressed and refreshed.

Bio: I have been fishing since I was 5 years old in Durban and have fished many places around the world and in South Africa, but Durban is my home waters. I fished competitive for many years and I have been running my own charters since 2008 with 2 companies and 2 boats, fish a variety of styles and target a variety of fish species in both Salt and Fresh water, have many published articles in several magazines on fishing. Love nature and outdoors, Am very conservation minded and have a passion for birds. I am crazy about big Tuna, Marlin Fishing and Game Fishing, and also love light tackle spinning, am a total lure junkie. Represented my province in fly fishing for many years and am also pro staff for Rapala/Shimano. I want to write a book on fishing one day. 3 items left on my fishing bucket list, guess then a new bucket list will be in order. As a writer I have my own quote: \"I love taking people fishing because it releases their inner child, and in doing so keeps my inner child alive.\"
