The fish are still biting with the whole of the fleet who are still fishing now congregated around the Linden Bank area as the dirty water has moved back in further north. Some big fish reported with Capt Dan and Bill on board Moana letting go another that was estimated well in excess of 1200lbs on Jenny Louise. Shakari was heading in yesterday with a big fish on board to weigh for a potential junior world record. On the bank, reports of fish also for Viking and Sir Reel. Hell Raiser caught three including a double header.

Meanwhile, Kekoa had another monster bite from a grander plus which came up with a group of fish including another estimated at about 800lb and four more in the 200-500lb range. Only the big girl bit, but she wasn’t hooked quite well enough and got away after a 10 minute fight about 20ft from the leader.

Reel Chase heads out for their final Cairns season trip and as most of the boats have already finished or are very close to doing so, our updates will also be winding down. Please expect sporadic updates over the next few weeks and once the boat is home on the Gold Coast we will be putting together photo albums of the season and hopefully some DVDs of our video footage too. I will let you know when those are ready.
