Reel Chase caught Scott the big one, unfortunately it wasn’t a marlin but an 800lb bull whaler shark which pulled the hook on the leader at the back of the boat. Fishing quietened somewhat on the Bank yesterday although Moana with Bill on board caught a 900lb-er and Joe-Joe a 600lb-er. A couple of other little ones were reported for boats including Kekoa who found the fish off St Crispins in the same spot we had success for Andrew and Paul last week.I also have a photo to share courtesy of Dean Butler taken from nearby Allure when he was on board recently of Kekoa’s first grander of the season. It is a fabulous photo, thanks Dean(!), and looks deceivingly as though the fish is jumping at the front of the boat.
