Last Pre-Christmas Update

A final update before Christmas and a few days offline:

  • Steve Bedwell from Port Macquarie Game Fishing  Club sent me an updated report from last Sunday’s club day.  Steve said 5 boats fished in great weather. Purple Haze went 1 from 2 blue marlin at approx 120kgs  to Darren Lewis. While Renegade took a short bill spearfish for junior Jessica Hyde  which went 21.4 kg on 15 kg line.  Hermans Heros fished for an unfortunate 2-1-0 blue marlin and striped marlin . A reminder that the Golden Lure Comp starts on the 6 January and runs to the 14th January with more that $35,000 in prizes to be won!  Thanks Steve!
  • And Steve Williams also sent me a catch up report from the recent Yorkey’s Knob Wahi Wahi comp: While the tournament is wahoo and mahi-mahi only point scoring, Grant Harradine fishing on board Stressless scored himself a PB, hooking and tagged his first sailfish of 45kg on board at the top of Linden Bank. Steve says you still can’t get him off cloud nine and he can only imagine what he’s going to be like when he finally tags a black marlin after four losses (including an 800lber lost after 3.5 hours skipper error!!!)
