With a lot of boats in Cooktown for changeover, the talk was all about going out wide in search of tuna aggregations and marlin after a very quiet few day on the Ribbons. Allure caught a 60lb-er which must have decided on a northern migration from Cape Bowling Green and quite a few boats will be heading south toward Linden Bank this morning including Reel Chase to hopefully catch up with the fish on the good bait schools which will should be there in this calm weather. On Linden yesterday, Sweat and Tears saw some action catching a small one and loosing a big one after a fight. For you Bill, Moana is currently suffering the same fate as the rest of the fleet and fished out wide in the morning before heading into Escape yesterday afternoon. I have one more day in Cooktown before heading out with the team on Kekoa tomorrow. I’m still having internet issues so unsure how I will go from posting out there. Fortunately with Reel Chase in overnight I could get online again today. Picture of Reel Chase as she came into Cooktown on changeover yesterday.
