Australia The Great

"Shoulders" any woman would be proud of behind the Tradition

Cairns, Australia (Great Barrier Reef) – If you like Grander Marlin, there is no place in the world that comes close to Australia. You will see that we have 11 Grander Marlin caught this year thus far. Bermuda has 3 Grander Marlin for the season and may add one more, but when the boys get on the reef, you are going to see double digits.

It is a short three-month season, but man is it exciting. In Mid to Late September, you can expect to be going off. We saw the Viking II catch two Granders in one day last season and  Capt. Barry Cross (formerly on the Joe Joe) catch two Granders in the Lizard Island Tournament last season. These are just a few examples.

We got these incredible pictures from Capt. Tim Richardson on the Tradition ( While he can not guarantee you a Grander, he will put you on the fish.
