Day 2 of the 2018 Billfish Shootout in Port Stephens ended up in 5:4:4 with 3 marlin bites and another 2 good sized mahi-mahi. We tagged and released 2 blues.

Fun weekend for team Big Blue. 15:14:8 including 10 blue marlin bites and 1 black marlin bite makes a great weekend’s fishing on most people’s calendar. Next stop - 2018 NSWGFA Interclub State Championships.

Day 1 of the 2018 Billfish Shoot in Port Stephens was loaded with action. Team Big Blue went 10:10:4. We landed and released two Mahi-Mahi’s (20kg+ est), tagged two blue marlin and lost the battle against another 5 blue marlin and 1 black marlin. Looking for a big fish, we had large lures and hooks in the water while most of the fish were on the smaller side (80-120 kg), therefore the proper hookup ratio was not that great. We nevertheless had lots of fun and look forward to Day 2 of the tournament.

Hereby a picture of guest team member Johan Landsberg on the trace with one of today’s fish:
