Though I’m now home on dry land. Doh! Reports from Bobby Jones on Fascination II on Linden Bank yesterday indicate the fish are still there. Fascination released one as did most of the other 6 or so boats fishing there for the day.Up North, Kanahoee have re-discovered the fish on Number 10. Venturing north and away from most of the fleet Capt. Dave tagged three on Monday and another yesterday proving the fish are still spread along the length of the reef. Reel Chase is heading out this morning from Cairns to the Bank with Scott and Meredith on board for the next three days. Capt. Jim reported the wind has eased a little down south although it’s raining! (You can’t win!) Also, Moana is heading out today with regular reader Bill on board after a couple of extra days in port because of the weather. Will hopefully have an update tomorrow on their first day out on this trip as well.Meanwhile Kekoa heads out from Cooktown. Hopefully some good reports and photos to come tomorrow. In the meantime, some more pics from my trip out and fishing on Saturday. Above, Allure and fish almost lost in the big waves. Below, some still captures of Paul’s 700lb-er released from my again, very damp hand cam.
