850 lbs Black Marlin behind Gorilla

Port Douglas, AustraliaCapt. Brett Thomas on the Gorilla sent us this report and these great shots from his Go-Pro Camera fishing off the Ribbon Reefs.

Day 1 – Fishing the No. 4 Ribbon Reef, they went 2-3 on Black Marlin, releasing a 200 and 300 lbs fish.

Day 2 – Fishing the No. 8 Ribbon Reef, they again went 2-3, releasing a 200 and a 450 lbs fish.

Day 3 – Fishing the No. 5 Ribbon Reef, the crew quickly released a 200 lbs black and then later the “trophy” 850 lbs fish (Seen Above)

Capt. Brett tells us the 850 charged the boat and stuck its bill in the transom, leaving a nice hole! Bet that was exciting!
