A quick report from Capt. Ken Brown on Megumi who caught a blue marlin about 300lbs on Wednesday on the canyons E/SE of Point Lookout for angler Kirby Ballen. It was Kirby’s first marlin and Ken says he’s been levitating instead of walking around since! Ken also headed out to fish off Cape Moreton yesterday, but the wind was up and the sea very rough. They decided to give the shelf a swerve and dropped some light tackle lures in on ‘The Trench’ where they raised a little black after 5 minutes. Unfortunately the fish didn’t hook up and it was an early return to port as the team on board were getting sea sick.
