500+ Club – We had a total of 47 Marlin reported to us weighing in excess of 500 lbs. during November. Of those 40 were Black Marlin and 7 were Blue Marlin. As expected the Black Marlin reports were dominated by Cairns, Australia with 34 of those coming from the Great Barrier Reef. Probably the more impressive number was the 10 Grander Black Marlin (Grander Watch)we added, including 3 over 1,200 lbs with the largest by Capt. Tim Richardson on the Tradition, a very respectable 1,220 lbs.
There was no Top Boat on the Blue Marlin as we did not receive multiple reports from any boats. The Top Black Marlin boat was Hot Shot, who released 7 over 500 lbs.
We are only as good as the reports we get. If we missed one, please let us know and thanks for all the reports in November!
