Mooloolaba Billfish Bonanza

MGFC’s stalwarts the Douglass family’s Luna took out back to back wins at the billfish bonanza over the weekend with the only tagged marlin on Day 1. While Day 2 was a better day on the scoreboard, with the the stats 32-26-24 (1 tagged black marlin, 3 non qualifying tuna, 14 wahoo, 6 mahi mahi) the rest of the tournament fleet couldn’t catch up.
