Great day at Linden Bank and Sunshine Coast Spring Shootout

A great day at Linden Bank for the team on Capt. Casey Dent’s Zulu going 7-6-5 black marlin with fish at approx 100lb, 300lb, 800lb, 900lb & 950lb. Amanda tells me that it was terrible weather but marlin action all day – awesome fishing! Photos above and below.

Unfortunately not so up to the weather they played inside, jumped a sail off and caught one little black and baits and GT’s.  Dan has an opening during prime dates 30 October to 2nd November if you are interested, send Dan a message.
