Out of 7 marlin tagged for the day, three boats managed to double their score. Maitai now leads the competition from Joe Joe and Heart Throb with two tags each. And boats with one are: Too Easy II, Reel Chase, Hot Shot, Iona 2, Castille III and Hard To Swallow. Unfortunately the slow day also resulted in a lack of big fish. But the weather is nice;-)Boats are now spread up and down the reef with a couple heading into Cooktown overnight for re-supply from the fabulous Andrew at Cooktown Iceworks. More shots of the action behind TowCam: Barry the barracuda and Wally the wahoo who really got his teeth into it.
