News from Capt. Tom who has just spent another 10 days fishing south from Norfolk Island to the Wanganella Banks. Fishing 2 days initially closer to Norfolk the team found some great structure and in the two days ended up with 8 Marlin, including 3 Black Marlin (3-400lbs) and the remaining Stripeys as well as some Yellowfin to 50kg. Not a bad effort at all!

But while the fishing slowed over the moon, the last two days at Wanganella lived up to everything that we have ever heard about the fishery and more. 24 and 19 respectively – 24 Marlin being Ultimate Lady‘s new daily record. At one stage they fought 6 fish at once!!! This trip also marked their first Black Marlin at Wanganella, a nice one sized about 500lbs.

I hope we get to see another DVD made of this trip! :-)
