Fresh from a successful season at Port Stephens, Capt. Ben “Notso” Bright hit the ‘bluewater’ off Weipa yesterday chasing billies and was happy to report success. Two from two black marlin at 20 and 35kg on his boat Last Cast on skipping yakkas. Then after that excitement, they had some more excitement running through a pretty significant storm on the way in! Ben was fishing with Townsville GFC clubsters Mark Parkes and Ben Mathieson who are no strangers to the little blacks nor the big rains having a very wet year themselves over on the East Coast. Thanks Ben for the report and photos!
Back down at Port, the bite continues. Capt. Tim Dean on Calypso added another 4 inshore earlier in the week while Capt. Scott Thorington on Flying Fisher went 4 from 6 yesterday bringing his season total so far to 85.
