Held again in Exmouth and despite being limited to just one day of fishing due to rough weather, this weekend’s 2019 Australian Junior Billfish Tournament anglers in the small fry (under 11 years old) and junior (11-15 years old) category tagged 26 sailfish and 1 black marlin which is a new one day record for the tournament.
Champion Team Junior and Champion Team Overall were the boys on On Strike, anglers Stefan Helberg and Trent Gregory, who tagged 10 from 15 sailfish!
Champion Team Small Fry was team Nail It with anglers Zac & Jake Owens.
Champion Team Mixed (Small Fry & Junior anglers) was team Cin Bin with anglers Ethan & Jaxon Kabelka.
Also enjoying some great fishing before the wind came up was Eddy Lawler’s Peak Sport Fishing. In 6.5 days fishing they recorded 9 blue marlin as part of 2 Grand Slams (blue, stripe, sail and black, stripe, blue). 4 of those blues they put at over 500lb or better including a new Australian pending Women’s 60 kg (130lb) record for Hayley Dellar at 641 lb (291.4kg)!
