With our last day at Port cancelled, we took advantage of the weather to make a speedy u-turn and return to the Gold Coast – Reel Chase will be arriving back at Marina Mirage today. Just in time for the blue marlin season to kick off in ernest. I’d last heard blue marlin reports from Caboom the weekend of the 7th of March with Graham and team releasing one for each day in the 200kg range. And another report from yesterday (Sunday) with local boat Barco raising 9 out wide for 7 shots and 4 hookups, successfully tagging all four and narrowly missing hooking up on the double clearing the lures from the water. There were also two more at Pt. Lookout and with the weather good all week, we’ll be expecting more reports to trickle in.
