SEQ light tackle still hot, and more NSW Interclub

Game & Leisure Boats Gold Coast

Updated 28 Feb: More photos from the Interclub from on board Luke Maddern’s Maddness on Sunday – thanks Claire! And a report from Anthony Raco fishing outside the comp.

Anthony headed out Saturday in the Noosacat and with the benefit of no other boats around, found the bait and the fish biting their heads off. They released 6 from 7 bites made up of 3 blacks and 3 stripes.


More good numbers of little blacks off both the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast over the weekend. 2018 summer season is turning into the season that never ends! And see below for more pics and results from the Interclub!


Starting on the Sunshine Coast, Mooloolaba GFC’s Torettes went 3 from 4 on black marlin. They also caught a nice wahoo for the table. Jamie tells me that swell and wind have eased although they are moving around as the same area was fished the following day and the bait and fish had gone!

On the Gold Coast, Ryan Goding’s Mojo tagged 4 black marlin on Sunday including a recapture which they are tracking down through DPI (it was an old tag). Ryan said they also saw another two with similar tags in them they were unable to recover the tags.

Jesse Hill’s Reel Teaser also had a cracking Sunday for an 8-6-5. Awesome result for a shorter day with the early mark putting another novice onto his first marlin! (photo at top)

And Capt. Craig “Sparra” Denahms’ Hot Shot also found the fish with a 5-4-3.
