Hi all 28 boats fished the 1 base 62 anglers 1 blue Marlin  approx 160 kg, 

10 yellowfin biggest 17 kg, 2 kings measured 1.1 mtrs, 1 bronze tagged, 3 tagged  stripies , longest snapper 790 mm

This is all from memory apologies for any errors.

 

Tagged my 1st marlin fishing solo at the 155 EST 110 kg, a huge learning curve fishing by yourself, made a lot of mistakes,  but got there in the end.

well done K.B ,that a great effort . Thanks for the report .
I heard they were giving away a ford 4x4 ranger if you weighed a marlin over 250 kg.
That looks like a good run of yellow fin , what depth were everyone getting those?

Closer to 100 anglers, 62 early bird entrants. And there was one underweight stripie that came up dead. Heaps of cash prizes!!! Well done on your fish KB, don’t forget the tag card!
