Update from Ben “Notso” Bright on board Scotty Thorington’s Freedom (Haven Charters Terrigal). Ben say that the inshore has been pretty good but with the water quality ever changing. Over the last two days it has been really good for Scotty going 6 from 10 on Friday and 9 from 11 yesterday – all small black marlin.
A double header and a recapture of a 25kg black to boot, ticked all the boxes with Mick Gamble from the NSW game fish tagging program riding along on board.
Some very small fish also took their toll on the hookup rate, and there has also been the odd striped marlin getting involved as well as blacks up to 80 kg or so.
Ben said that the also watched Capt. Timmy Dean’s Calypso catch two double headers yesterday including one of a stripe and black, finishing on 5 for the day. Little Audrey tagged 4 blacks to 50kg as well as a 150kg mako on 10kg!!
Ben says the weather has been first class too.
Okay, stop it now ;-)
