Sn2 Ep5: Cape Reinga

Once the trevally arrive in feeding mode, it's all action stations and there are screaming reels all over the cockpit.

This episode of PlaceMakers Big Angry Fish was filmed at Cape Reinga, a remote location for boaties due to the lack of boat launching opportunities within reach.

We have a good look around Cape Reinga itself before wetting the line. This place holds good populations of some of the country's biggest trevally due to the massive currents running around the Cape itself.

Big kingfish are caught and a few snapper before the shy trevally finally sniff out the big berley trail put out. Once they arrive in feeding mode, it's all action stations and there are screaming reels all over the cockpit.

Safety At Sea

It is of highest importance to carry at least two waterproof communication devices – either on your person or in a float-bag. These devices include a waterproof VHF radio or cellphone in a waterproof casing; an approved distress beacon either an EPIRB a personal locator beacon and always make sure your flares are on-board and not expired. Bring spare warm clothing in case of severe change in weather or in case you have to spend the night on the boat, one never knows what could happen at sea.
