Switch-baiting Sailfish on spinning gear and even landing one on a stickbait!.. While exploring new fishing grounds in the South Pacific, we came across a school of sailfish and immediately deployed the trollcam!. An unbelievable day of fishing on board Captain Garry Sommer’s vessel ‘November Rain’. This is why we love it! Fish for the future!

With close to 60 000 records across 42 species of gamefish, the African Billfish Foundation (ABF) runs the largest gamefish tagging database in Africa and they are calling for all African skippers to get involved! The foundation promotes effective conservation through advocacy for sustainable fishing practices and the protection of all billfish species, their environment and the millions of diverse stakeholders reliant upon billfish stocks to support their livelihoods.

If you would like to get involved with billfish tagging or genetic research, you can get in touch with The African Billfish Foundation at: info@africanbillfish.org or on Facebook at: www.facebook.com/AfricanBillfishFoundation.

The 2014 Billbash tournament took place in August … what we experienced up there left us broken, stunned, and wanting more!! The footage shown was captured by a single boat at the tournament and shows exactly why this type of fishing is so damn addictive and why we come back to it year after year! This is why we love it! Fish for the future!
