Newcastle East Coast Classic

Champion Boat (T&R) went to Frito 2 (Troy Frith, Cooper Frith and Andrew Bagnall) which was a fantastic effort for a trailerboat and smallest boat in the fleet and made for a nervous Day 2 of fishing with the team not able to add to their Day 1 score.  The team also won Highest Pointscore Marlin for their 3 blue marlin on Day 1. Big congrats also to Cooper who tagged his first blue marlin in an epic battle of 2 hours on 15kg standup tackle.

And there was also plenty of action on the Capture wide with the Heaviest Marlin going to to Dan Cock with 273.60 kg blue marlin on Off the Hook.

Overall there were 39 marlin tagged (33 blue marlin, 4 black marlin and 2 striped marlin) and 11 blue marlin captured.
