A few tournaments were held over the weekend and hopefully the tournament reports from those events are not too far away. I did hear that Day 2 of the Broken Bay Invitational was cancelled due to bad weather, while similarly, Ulladulla‘s three days were reduced to one and a bit with the weather moving through on Saturday afternoon.
Back to Tanga 5 went ahead (results to come) and Gamex wrapped up with the presentation on the weekend topping off another great week in the west.
Overall Exmouth GFC report that 761 billfish were raised, 517 hooked and 246 tagged or captured. There were also 2 World, 4 Australian and 4 State record captures throughout the week. In the Tag & Release section, the leading boat in the Under 7m category was Skulldraggin who tagged 12 from Ruffunuff with 8. In the Over 7m category, Sunride tagged 14, My Vice II tagged 11 and Pelagic Hooker tagged 9. Read on past the jump for the full results.
Meanwhile at Port Stephens, patchy, but a few more fish making themselves known.
In close at the Gibber, the Cresta Afisionado had a great day Thursday with 4 from 6 on the little blacks. And then followed up on Friday with…. zeros! Capt. Tim Dean’s Calypso also reported a mixed bag for the last few days. Tim said they went 1 from 5, 3 from 3 and then none from none!
Meanwhile, out on the Carpark, Andy tells me that Fritto 1 release their first (yes, first!) striped marlin of the season on Saturday ending the day with a 2-2-2 (both stripes). Andy also reported a black and a stripe for Diversion, while Born Free had a go at another couple as well.
