Jack Erskine Memorial Round Up: Cairns Bluewater Billfish Tournament 2013



Congratulations to the team on Hellraiser whose consistency throughout the comp saw them take the honours on the final day. With no fish reported on the first sked, it was an action packed and nerve wracking afternoon that saw them add one fish firstly to overtake Day 2 leaders New Moon, and then another to cement the lead.

Final Results:

Hellraiser 6 tags

New Moon 4 tags

Bounty Hunter 4 tags
