GBR Starting off Well

500 lbs. Black Marlin for Tradition

Cairns, Australia (GBR) – Heavy Tackle Black Marlin Season is upon is and despite some awful conditions to start the season, the fish have started to show. We got an absolutely incredible report out of Darren Haydon and Bo Jenyns on Calypso. The boys released 4 Black Marlin with an 850, 800, 400 & 300. Now that is a way to start!

We also had another report of a nice fish,  with Hot Shot releasing a 900 lbs. Black Marlin. Capt. Brad Craft on Castille released a 500 lbs. Black Marlin and Capt. Tim Richardson on Tradition (picture above) also released a 500 lbs Black on 50W.
