When the fish are on you can't turn down an opportunity so with Paul unable to film IFISH producer Tom Hughes flew up to Ballina, NSW to hook up with local angler Matthew Saad who gave the IFISH TV crew the heads up of the hot bite only 5 days prior. The boys hit the water targeting amberjack in 120 metres of water using fresh slimey mackeral on Gamakatsu 8/0 big bait hooks and managed one amazing amberjack before they were plagued with big yellowtail kingfish (oh no!). The next day the IFISH TV crew drove north to Fingal Head and caught up with Jaiden Maclean and Byron Leal the creators of the "Sky Rigger" drone fishing device and within 10 minutes of hitting the beach the guys had spotted 2 big long tail tuna on a bait ball 350 metres from the shore using the drone. They quickly brought the drone back and hooked on a fresh pilchard on a single Gamakatsu 6/0 circle hook and dropped the bait 5 metres ahead of the tuna and they were on! 20kg of amazing land based long tail tuna, a first for Tom and a cracking fish.
