The Black Marlin Fishing Blog has been your one-stop for Australian marlin fishing reports for over a decade! While no longer posting daily, Kelly’s reports, straight from the water from skippers, anglers, gamefishing clubs and observers Australia-wide as still available in the archives and will remain live.


The archive page is your link to all the reports for your reading pleasure, way back to 2006!

Meet Kelly

The Black Marlin Fishing Blog is the brainchild of Kelly Dalling (now Kelly Dalling Fallon).

In 2005, Kelly spent her first Giant Black Marlin Season alongside her skipper father Jim. Fresh back in the country after several years living and working overseas, she welcomed the opportunity to spend a season alongside her Dad on the Great Barrier Reef….and she never left!

Also a long term blogger while working overseas, Kelly thought nothing of creating a new blog to post daily marlin fishing reports from the Coral Sea.

Nowadays Kelly works on board KEKOA with her husband Capt. Luke Fallon (since 2010), and is a veteran of 16 Giant Black Marlin Seasons. Together Kelly & Luke not only run one of the most professional and well known professional marlin boats in the country, Kekoa Sports Fishing, but together they also run Fishing Monduran with Luke Fallon Sport Fishing and Fishing Fraser with Luke Fallon Sport Fishing.
