Cairns, Australia – The season has started in earnest off the Great Barrier Reef and while the numbers are not there yet, the size certainly is. We have seen four (4) Grander Black Marlin released already in one week. Capt. Billy Billson on Viking II released 2 Granders as did Capt. Hayden Bell on Release. Simply a phenomenal start and week for both those boats.
Some other really nice fish being caught with a 900 lbs. Black Marlin on Calypso, 800 lbs. Black Marlin on Mistress and an 800 lbs. Black Marlin on Tradition as well. Tradition’s fish was caught by lady angler Lydie Fayard on 50 lbs line, a vey impressive angling accomplishment.
The season should last into early December, so expect plenty more reports of big Black Marlin from Northern Queensland.
