|Date||27 Sept 1967|
The only-recently-set Australian record was set on the 27th September 1967 for angler Basil Mitchell.
Trivia: Basil’s son Graham fished the reef in 2015 with Capt. Bill Bilson on Viking II and released his own grander class marlin that Bill put at 999lbs. See the report and pic on the Black Marlin Blog here.
