We fished Saturday as well - saw 6 marlin all within a 5 nm area.  One feeding, one hooked up on boat 30m away from us (and caught), one we hooked and 3 other free jumpers. We fished 170-220m outside Aldermans - the one we hooked Friday was at 12.23pm and we hooked up next day again at 1.25 Saturday - approx 4 hours after high tide - Fish jumped on the line which broke when 600m out - temp hit 24 degrees (just) and it was hot action as epic said in the tropics!
We are going North to Tuts for the Nationals if anyone want GPS marks let me know as there are pleny of marlin there at present

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

Hey Rebana

If you can flick us the GPS marks would be great, fished outside the Aldies on Saturday with no luck, were in the 300 to 500m area.
Fishing the classic later this week so keen to have a look
