A quick update on the first day’s fishing from Capt. Jim. Reel Chase had a couple of bites and unfortunately lost one at cease fishing.
The first days stats for the 40th Anniversary Cairns Black Marlin Tournament are:
60 + boats competing. Day ended with 24 tags. The leading boat is Mauna Kea with 3 tags.
Heaviest fish estimated 950lb black marlin on Moana 3.
