Well our trip with Scotty has come to an end. 10 fish including the big one at 1100lbs+ for Glen who added another big one about 750lbs yesterday. Scotty at 850lbs and Brett at 800lbs as well as a bunch of small and medium sized models. I was pleasantly surprised to hear Scotty say this has been the best trip ever, especially since he fished with Luke back in 2004 - a HOT season - when among other fish, they caught 7 on Ribbon 7 in one day (actually after 3pm in one day!!!) lol. But it was a great week and we had awesome fun and the big fish bite was on for us. The boys leave a little worse for wear but are looking forward to doing it all next year! #kekoa56 #cairnsmarlin ... See MoreSee Less
