Steve sent me this picture of a 362kg (816lb) blue marlin weighed at Coffs Harbour yesterday on a 32ft Cabo called Matador on 80lb.This is a pretty significant catch. There haven’t been any fish this size caught for several years (with the exception of Ultimate Lady’s fish which was caught more than 550 miles off the Australian coast). So far it seems there has been blue marlin caught off South East Queensland and Northern NSW for every month this year. It’s a very good sign that its shaping up to a good summer season for the blue marlin, as well as the juvenile blacks!
