Impressive boat driving skills

Impressive boat driving skills

Team Yeehaa's Luke Davis demonstrates first-class trailerboat handling skills on billfish.

Big game fishing is a team sport, as demonstrated by the crew on Catch Me. Look for the teamwork between the angler, the wireman and the skipper - particularly when the fish is running slightly ahead and close to the boat. Too much pressure could pull the fish under the hull, while the right balance allows the vessel to be run up alongside and the tag placed.

If this gets your blood pumping consider entering the Bonze International MarlinĀ Skins tournament from the 5th to the 7th of February.
