Full results of the weekend’s Broken Bay Invitational Tournament are now in with a big thank you to Broken Bay GFC President Reub Hayes for all the details and pictures.As I mentioned previously, congratulations to Capt. Hoggy and Reub and the team on board his boat In a Meeting who took out the Champion Boat Tag & Release, storming into contention with their first fish with two hours to go, and adding another two (a total of two blues in the 500 and 350lb range and striped marlin) before cease fishing for the win. Pipi Paton on Bravo captured this pending Australian record blue marlin at 202kg on 15kg – big congratulations to Pipi on this fantastic effort! Bravo took out Champion Boat Capture with two blue marlin, both on 15kg with Rampage runner up with a blue and a stripe. Another notable capture was for LMGFC boat Kranky with a 103kg black marlin on 10kg – a 10 to 1 capture.A nice run of blue marlin since the Interclub has seen good numbers of big fish being caught and indeed some more nice blues were fought, with one boat fighing a nice fish for 5 and a half hours on 37kg before busting it off.Over 300 anglers on 86 boats competed.
