Capt. Luke and team KEKOA headed out wide to join the group of boats yesterday and it seems like there are still some good fish in residence on the spot as they hooked up and released a solid 850lb-er upon arrival. Capt. Tom on Ultimate Lady couldn’t match his numbers from the day before and although they had the bite from a really nice fish, could not convert. They are in Port for a few days and back out tomorrow (with Lance on board it seems). According to Capt. Luke, some of the other boats got in on the action as well. Sparrow had another nice fish and Capt. Ross on Top Shot had a 700lb mako shark! Capt. Tim sent me this picture of their nice fish from the day before on Tradition.Meanwhile, it seems Capt. Jim did decide to get the lures out after all as Reel Chase approached Hervey Bay for the night sending me this great message – “one lure, one hour, one tag” (apparently being one of the smaller blacks that DG had told me the other day that have started moving into the Sunshine Coast waters.)
