ULTIMATE FISHING – The Ultimate Burley Trail!

Published on Feb 4, 2014

This week sees Matt targeting a couple of NZ’s most underutilized fish species; the skipjack and albacore tuna. Whilst attempting to demonstrate the versatility of these under-appreciated fish, the team are pestered by packs of pesky marlin, and come across some gigantic schools of balling baitfish which have to be seen to be believed.

EXTREME Shark Fishing on Crowded Beach


Beach Shark Fishing. Hybrid Shark Caught. Breaking News, Epic conditions as you can see in the video and Payam caught a very nice Blacktip stark. The shark broke the line as soon as it hit the sand. You can see in the video that the shark is wrapped in some blue rope. I wish we could have gotten a better release and got that rope off the shark. Otherwise an epic mullet run day. Congrats on Payam for running that dog. Happy Bait.

In March of 2013, Sami fished for bluefin tuna in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. For this trip, Igor, Dima, Oleg & Dima joined Sami to fish on the Tuna Duck, captained by Dan Rooks.

In this video Sami lands a 69 inch bluefin tuna using Saltywater Tackle Race Point 300 and the brand new 2013 Shimano Stella 18000SWBHG. The fight time was about 20 minutes. The fish took a Moutoukenmaru lure.


Squid Fishing FLOATER Amazing Footage of Squid in Pre-Spawn Behavior Part 1

This was filmed Summer 2010 1 mile off La Jolla,CA. I was commercial fishing Live Squid aboard a light boat operating out of San Diego,CA. We were the only squid boat in the area and found this massive school of squid just outside the kelp beds. The squid were nesting in 80 ft of water in a sandy bottom area. A spot know by the local fisherman as the 3/4. We immediately “lit up” the ocean under our boat with 20 football sized light bulbs and the Squid Rushed our boat in amazing numbers. From what was under our boat on our meter it was easily 50 tons of squid under us. At this point we would call in our seiner and he would wrap us and all the squid to be served up at restaurants as calamari appetizer’s. Our seiner came the next night and we never saw the same volume of squid we missed out.
