Sorry for the late update as internet service was very low up the middle ribbon reefs. What a cracker of a tournament with lots of big black marlin and best of all we came 2nd in the tournement, lizard island black marlin classic is the hardest and most prestigious tournament in the country.
Day 1- Saw us fishing of ribbon reef #10 and was a very slow day for us only seeing 1 fish that didnt eat.
Day 2- I decided on leaving #10 early and heading down to #4 to get away from the fleet, this decision turned out well tagged a 150lber for the day.
Day 3- Turned out to be a bumper for us releasing 4 black marlin for the day, including a double header a 850lber and a 150lb fish, also for the day we released another 850lb fish and a 500lber. We also won the daily lizard island award for the most fish released that day.
Day 4- It just kept getting better for the boat tagging a 150lber and missing a tag shot on a 300lb fish, later that afternoon the big girl came up that i was marking all arvo and we tagged our 2nd for the day at a jaw dropping 1050lbs.
Day 5- Saw us miss a tag shot on a very crazy 800lber on the leader which ended sour for us cracking him off on the leader, and later that day we tagged a 150lb fish
Day 6- We released a show jumping 600lber and shortly followed by a 200lber.
Day 7- Very slow day for us seeing nothing as we had to start heading back up to #10 to make the presentation.
All up for 7 days fishing we caught 12 black marlin and tagged 10 of the 12, awesome effort from the boys and a big effort from my champion crewman jeff hudson.
Stay tuned as im fishing for the most of this month, i will have videos and photos on the site very soon!
