AIBT Exmouth footage

Hey guys, weather was rough and fishing was slow but still had a great time at AIBT in Exmouth last week.

Quick clip of a nice little black marlin we tagged filmed on an iphone, fight time was a bit over an hour on 15kg spin gear fish was feisty and I was pretty exhausted by the end battling both the weather and fish but was still great fun.

Check it out in HD, hope the weather comes good for any of you fishing GAMEX!

Cheers

Matt

 Was hard going out there. Not many fish and very average weather.

Much appreciated posting up that video of a great catch & release.

Looks like it was a bit gnarly out there on the day of the catch.

Thanks guys!

dodgy - yeah ya not wrong was very quiet fishing all round. Looks like it's fired back up a bit for Gamex at least!

Glen.vit - yeah exactly right video never seems to do the weather justice, was pretty foul all 3 days but there was a couple of small windows where it wasn't all that bad, the last day was looking the worst on forecast think a few boats didnt bother heading out but it wasn't actually that bad at all till later in the day.

Cheers

 Well done to the skipper as well for that too. Pretty good swell and a pretty good job of keeping on the fish.
