Other Bit(e)s and Pieces

Steve Bedwell tells me that he’s heard the black marlin have show up in Jervis Bay and that they are getting them of the rocks!  And I had some photos from the Ben and the boys on Gaven Robert’s Striper on Sunday out of Weipa.  Darryl French (Frenchy) with his sailfish boatside, as well as Gaven and his 9 y.o son Dylan Roberts with Dylan’s fish.  Also on board was Reid Benson who steered them all in the right direction all day.
