I have been fortunate enough to fish with my Father In-law Ray Holmes for the last 11 years, we have become terrific friends spending countless days at sea on his old boat Ecstacy. We have had some very memorable catches over the years and have enjoyed every moment together.
Over the last three to four years, our adventures have slowed due to kids being born and business taking up a lot more of my time. But one thing we have talked about is making the run down to Cape Runaway to try and intercept some of the migrating SBFT which run past the East Cape in June & July. When I heard news of fish being off the Cape, I rang Ray to hatch a plan to travel the 90 nautical miles down to the Cape onboard his new boat Hard Yards, A Riv 34.
