We left Lizard with Moose on the boys on board to head back down to the lower Ribbons and hopefully to find some of the bigger fish. The weather is improving but it was still pretty tough going against the sea all day as we made our way down Number 10. The hard slog was broken by some energetic marlin action with a couple of 250lb-ers for Tony and Paul to start off their trip. A good start and good practice for the boys on their first day back on the reef. With most of the boats heading into Cooktown yesterday for changeover, we expect to see everyone back out here again today.
