[Sharing flashback images until we are able to get back to fishing and normal life] --
2010 Cairns marlin season
This was the first season on the brand new 56 O'Brien, after 4 years on the 47 KEKOA.
Photo 1: Recognise some of the familiar crew faces?
Photo 2: This particular fish was a memorable one.. I think from memory Luke called it 850lb for Brendan. Back then we ran the tow camera and watched the fish come up on, and destroy three consecutive big baits before finally hooking up on the third. They boys would get a new one straight out, and there it was again.
Photo 3: Brendan and Rick hold up the first two mangled results. Hungry fish!
Photo 4: Same trip I remember we also broke the chair on its very first season!! #funtimes Luckily the engineer among us go it up and going again for fishing the next day! ... See MoreSee Less
