Hello John, We are very sorry about the misunderstanding. In 8 hour trips, we go for pelagic species, it takes 1 hour and a half to reach the outer side of the bay, and we don't drop lines in the water until we are in their fishing grounds. To start fishing we have to slow down engines, so it would give you less time trying for the big ones if we go there slow-trolling. Fishing inshore gives you more action, more catches, but usually, significantly smaller. Next time, do not hesitate to ask the captain to start fishing inshore, he acted by default, he should ask you for the plan as well. Best regards.

A great morning on Karina II with Judith, William and Capt.Tony. It was a slightly overcast Boxing Day morning and an early start from a Harbour thronged with cruise ship traffic. The crew looked after us very well, changing to watch humpbacks for an hour when we didn’t get any
