Report from Capt. Dean on Castille III who headed back out to the reef from Cooktown yesterday and put the baits in at Number 4 just after 12 and had released a 200lb-er by 12:30. By the end of the day they had seen 6 including another about 500lb that they jumped off. Iona also caught another smaller fish at Number three. Allure had some luck the day before releasing 2 at Number 5, but no joy Friday.The fish may be moving further up into the Ribbons as we had another quieter day on the Bank yesterday (although the yellowfin were going off). Shaka headed out again and went one from one on a small black for John and watched Wee Jock fight a fish for over two hours nearby.
