Protea Reef 16 Feb 2013.mp4
After the usual hectic river mouth launch out of the mighty Umzimkulu (Port Shepstone), we headed out on a bumpy sea, to Protea Reef a few miles out, to take on the yellowfin tuna that frequent it's pinnacles. The first two drifts at 3.5knots yielded nothing, but on our third attempt, things hotted up fast. Guest on the Niteshift - Randy Stevens, was the first to have his arms stretched - by a nice yellowfin of about 8kg's. That fish started the rush and soon we were going 3 sticks away. The yellowfin got bigger and bigger and our last fish - caught by Frenzy, weighed in at 14kgs.
