October 500+ Round Up

  October 2013 was a month of records here at the Billfish Report’s 500+ Club. We are still trying to catch up and with the Great Barrier Reef season still in session, we may not know how great October really was until December. So, for now the best month in our record keeping history will stand at an eye-popping 122…

August 500+ Round Up

We thought July was a good month until we remembered the Azores may have a few fish to add. Turns out we had an eye-popping 87 Blue Marlin and 3 Black Marlin in the month of August reported to us. The Azores was indeed the difference maker with 39 Blue Marlin released over 500 lbs. making it our Top Fishery…

July 500+ Round Up

July proved to be a very good month in terms of big marlin reported to us. We are the first to admit we don’t get them all, but we get a good number. In July, that number was 69 Blue Marlin and 1 Black Marlin over 500 lbs. July produced 3 Granders, a Blue Marlin in Kona, HI on the Rod…

April 500+ Club Round Up

April 500+ Club Round Up

April was an unusually slow month for the big girls. For that matter, 2013 has been fairly slow, especially on Granders with only 3 Caught this year, by comparison we had 8 Granders by the end of April in 2012. There is nothing to really read into that, but an interesting statistic. We had forty-three (43) Billfish reported to us…
