Small Bites: Port Fires, More from here and there

tarmacThe black marlin bite at Port Stephens fired yesterday with Capt. Tim Dean’s Calypso reporting 6 from 7. If you want to get in on this good fishing, Tim still has a couple of weekends opening between now and the end of the month, contact via the website. Tackleworld Port Stephens’ Brent Hancock also got in on the action going three from three solo!

Message from Capt. Ian “Wobbles” Ford at the helm of private boat Tarmac with two on Thursday including this 120kg striped for Stacey Fowler off Bermagui.

And back up in the north, there are more of the little (and not so little) fellas around very early. Ashley Cotter told me of two off Townsville in the past week including a 20kg black caught just wide of the Palms. And another caught by a visiting boat from NZ caught a 86kg black 10nm off the back of Magnetic Island.

And good luck to all competing in the SPGSFC All Tackle All Species this weekend!
