Makings of a bumper little black marlin season



The little black marlin are already showing up in number in the waters of the greater North Queensland, with word in particular from Townsville that they are a good mix of first and second year fish.

Off Yeppoon, Scotty Coulter has had a couple encounters as well while mackerel fishing. On Friday they spotted one tailing and then on Sunday they jumped off another on a skirted lure which had magically made its way into the spread ;-)

The light tackle tournaments are also starting to fill the calendar. Mark these two in your diaries:

  • Cairns BlueWater Billfish Tournament (With Jack Erskine Memorial) 7-10 August, 2013
  • Townsville Billfish Challenge 30 August – 3 September, 2013.

Full details in the tournament calendar.  If you have a tournament to add to the calendar, email me here with the details.
