Cairns Honorable Mention

GBR Grander Black

Cairns, Australia– Given how good the fishing can be on the Great Barrier Reef, we may not be able to post all the honorable mentions on here. Capt. Billy Billson released what he called a 950 lbs Black Marlin. For those not familiar with the skippers on the GBR. If it is not going to clearly go over 1,000 lbs, they call it a 950. Given the source, we feel like this could be close to the mark.
