Capt. Luke found this little guy in the stomach of a Scad caught for bait at Baines Patches over the weekend and suspects that it is a baby billfish. It is a little worse for wear and slightly digested but still has the makings of a bill and dorsal.So we have sent a photo on to the learned Dr. Julian so that he can hopefully identify it for us.Wouldn’t that be poetic justice?Marlin eat Scad. Scad eat Marlin.The rest of the fishing on the weekend was a bit hit and miss. There were some big fish caught late at Jenny Louise on Saturday with both Release and Allure reporting fish over 900lbs. Sunday, another glamour day in the weather department was quite a bit slower. Kekoa fought a big fish that Capt. Luke estimated at over a grand for 15 minutes before pulling the hook while we did the same on a smaller fish on board Reel Chase with Angler Dan in the chair. Capt. Deano on Castillle headed both wide and then South and found some big fish in the area around Pith Reef releasing an 850lb-er and loosing bigger fish a little bit later on. Both Kekoa and Reel Chase are trying their luck a further south today. Internet prevailing will still be able to report as per usual tomorrow.
