The boys on Eldonna did real well with 4 fish ( 3 T&R Qualified 1 Disq ) for the comp and a 5th on the way back down the coast this morning. Ended up with top angler T&R and Boat with most T&R Marlin. Sounds like a great time was had by all and the weather was pretty awesome for 3 out of 4 days.

Between a 150kg mako a nice 6kg albie and dropping a suspected black we noticed a albatross land and start flapping. After a couple of passes we picked up a nice frost fish still alive just swimming in circles.

Next day we wondered if it was a "gift" so after many fruitless hours and 30 mins left on competition clock we dropped it down on a bit of random bait. It was picked up mid water and we battled 1.5 hours a.large sword. Low on fuel and running out of daylight fish won its freedom
