Wrapping up in Townsville – 13 billfish added

We’ve just completed our final Cape Bowling Green trip of the Townsville light tackle black marlin fishing season with Andrew, Adam, Ben and Peter on board.  We enjoyed two particularly hot days of fishing at CBG with 12 billfish (10 marlin and two sailfish) before the weather came up and we headed to the reef for protection. On the way to Davies Reef on Sunday, Peter added billfish number 13, another black marlin, to the trip tally. This fish had already been tagged and we retrieved the number for NSW DPI.  Already we know that the fish was previously tagged by Ron Stevens on board Far Cry just a week before during the Townsville Tournament.  Obviously non the worse for his recent tagging adventure, he was again released in excellent condition 😉

Some photos of the trip – thanks guys for another great trip!

On Thursday we leave Townsville to fish our way to Cairns with Jan, Phil and John on board again.  Hopefully a few more light tackle black marlin to be found on our way to Cairns and we will be working hard to stock the freezers for the season ahead.
