Took my 13yr old daughter out for a fish

Headed offshore today, to try for some bluefin tuna. Luckily for my daughter, it wasn’t long before her 15kg Jigging master spin outfit was screaming. She had the drag on the shimano saragosa 10000 up around 10kg, so only took about 10 mins to get the fish boat-side. Estimated weight would be around 45kg and 60-65kg for the bigger one.

An 8/0 mustad demon circle, with mamoi diamond 50lb leader, combined with 30lb Jerry brown braid. Bait was a pilchard head free spooled away from the boat. Luckily we didn’t hook any big ones, as there were many boats hooking into 100kg+ fish (some on 10kg outfits).

Lots of big sharks about closer to shore. Further up the coast, a few mates had their boats attacked by angry makos (angry because they were hooked).
