Well the team on Reel Chase all saw how excited Scott was catching his first Black marlin on Wednesday. Yesterday he hit overdrive catching 3 for the day – all small but a very exciting day. The smaller males seem to be staking out the good spots along the reef including Linden Bank for another spawning run before the full moon on Dec 5. Today the team want to catch Scott a big one so his dreams have all come true in one trip.As usual the small fish have been hard to hook. Aside from the three tagged, Capt. Jim raised another 3 fish without result.Also on the Bank, Scott on Kamari caught 4 including a 900lb-er, Iona caught 2, Moana 1 and most boats had several encounters. Reel Chase were also joined in the anchorage last night by several boats from further North who reported dirty water and a fierce barracuda population making fishing up there near impossible.
