BMFB: Weekly Sked 2 September

Some quick news for this Friday:

  • Boats fishing this weekend’s Mike Carney Toyota Townsville Billfish Challenge will be aware that the committee confirmed at the meeting last night that teams will be able to nominate their fishing days at tonight’s briefing.  Due to the weather forecast for this weekend, they may choose to fish Sunday through Wednesday instead of the original Saturday through Tuesday.  Teams that do fish on Saturday will still be required to call in their skeds but without a grid reference. 

    The sailpast and shot-gun start will still go ahead on Saturday morning so look forward to some photos as we will be among the fleet returning to the marina on Saturday and plan to fish the Sunday to Wednesday option.

  • A reminder that the Innisfail Billfish Tournament follows soon after — its being held on the 23th – 25th September, with the briefing night on Thursday 22rd.  Ben sent me a pic to get you in the mood!
  • Lastly, next week BlueWater Magazine Issue 87 goes on sale. Here’s a sneak peak of the cover and what you’ll find inside.

    A feature from Pelagic Pro Team Captain Josh Temple and a journey to the realm of the biggest yellowfin tuna on the plane as well as a look at Cairns’ Giant Black Marlin and much more.

    Issue 87 on sale September 7.
