BALI — AUSTRALIA February 2015
Hi folks and thanks for stopping by the baliwaves.com (delivering the goods since 1999) for the latest news, best views we got and I guess to fill ya’s in on whats been happening since my last up date. Well as I reckon most of you have guessed Slim had to duck off island for a short spell and maybe even catch some well deserved R & R.
Even though I’m toughen it out here in Oz Ketut has assembled a 130 strong photo gallery to show you what has exactly been going over in Bali. according to Ketut wave height has been a consistent chest to head high with some over head freak sets from time to time, exactly what our crew was looking for. These photos were taken from 3 different locations on Bali’s East Coast. Clean and tidy surfing conditions with low numbers in the surf to go with it.
This morning in Bali 3rd February thanks again to Ketut wave height was breaking in the waist to head high range between Kuta Reef and Airport Left. Surfing conditions were a bit rough with the wind coming outta the WNW at 5-7knot.
For Slim this morning it’s still about climates and cultures not so much Toohey’s New (maybe later right). I think I might have another folder of nice photos to load up, one for the boys. So make sure you keep your eye’s open in the “Recent Posts” section, Ketut will have more photos for us as well you can count on that. So have a good one and stay tuned to the original bali surf report website since 1999
Bali Fishing Scene, Seeing as though I haven’t up dated the baliwaves Sport Fishing Page up for awhile I thought I’d try something different and let ya’s know what’s happening out there. The last week my fishing crew have been killing it on the Spanish Mackerel and close to home at that. The average fish caught have been in the 3-7kg mark but there ‘s also been plenty of big fat and strong adult fish that have been well over the 10-12kg mark. These fish can take some super long runs and peel off a lot of line before they usually about face and run back at you trying to shake those hooks. I’ve seen plenty of hard winding to keep that line tight before your fish will decide to take another run and peel off some more line. The lure that has been getting the most strikes is a blue / black Rapala CD9. The small Bonito Tuna in the 1-3kg range have also been hitting the lures as well. Earlier in the week there had a solid thick run of “Long Tom” which are also not bad eating and can certainly put a good bend in your rod, using fish baits. We fish for the feel !
