Our heavy tackle charters for giant black marlin are now in full swing.
September consisted of organising the boat and tackle in preparation for excited anglers and giant black marlin.
The last couple of weeks in September heavy tackle fishing out of Port Douglas showed positive signs for the season to come, including one day at Linden Banks going 7-6-5 black marlin at 150lb, 300lb, 800lb, 900lb & 950lb. Let’s just say our guests are now hooked, having not fished for marlin previously. See video here of that epic day. Unfortunately on one occasion (on another recent charter) we lost our marlin to the sharks. (see pic)
Cooktown was the next destination, arriving on Friday 9th October, where we’ll be basing the majority of our charters for the next month. We’re currently on charter fishing at Ribbons reef #9 so stay tuned for fishing reports live from the Great Barrier Reef!
