Report from Townsville clubbie Renee McKenzie who was Mick Dykstra’s Reel Crazy for a trip to Myrmidon last week. They managed 3 fish to the boat 150-300lb, 2 for first timer Ben (always good to see). Renee said the fish were definitely on the bite. They had a double header and a fish eating the bait as it went in the water at the back of the boat. Also plenty of 20kg yellowfin and big dolphin fish. Other boats out including The Chapel, Maximus, Redemption and Bite Me also all saw fish.
