Bob DanckertAny thoughts on whether the Blues are spawning around Fraser? They seem to be there in plentiful numbers and varied size ranges.

Well that's a wrap!! 3 more marlin yesterday which adds up to
25 marlin in 7 days (20 blues, 3 blacks, 2 stripes) and we're making today a lazy day into port. That winds up our 2017 marlin season. Luke and I want to thank all of our wonderful guests as well as our awesome crew - Divan, Adam and Ben #firstclass #boostingit !!
We were really fortunate this year as we had great light tackle fishing in September leading onto a hot October of Cairns giant black marlin before making the trek down here to the southern GBR and eventually onto Fraser Island where the fishing just got better and better. Plans are in the making for the next couple of years as we shake it all up!
I'll be posting some recaps and pics over the coming weeks as we get back into normal internet range.

Here's a photo of Divan and I yesterday releasing our last fish for the season and #25 for the trip fittingly for Scotty!! #garminmarine #garminau #pelagic #kekoa56 #gbr #fraserisland #blackmarlin #bluemarlin #stripedmarlin
