just heard from my bud up there, they hooked and tagged a couple of fish today. Est 40kg sail on 15 for ryan, est 50kg black on 24 for Keving (boat owner), amongst the various other pelagics you would expect, including a triple hook up(and boated), from 15 kg up yellowfin tuna.... He wasn't sure how Gribbo and crew is going though, seems to think they are raising a heap of fish too(pointy ones....), and tagged a couple yesterday...

Any news from your end Adam, pissing me off, sitting here in perth,getting second hand and obviously embellished stories from half cut fisho's fishing in paradise.....(we all done it!!!, the "embellished, half cut stories that is)

mmmmm.. sounds like they are having a bloody good time..

No word from Gribbo yet, not that I expect to hear from him for a while.. He's not too worried about informing us of the fish he's been getting, I'm sure if he lands something extra-ordinary he will be on the phone in a flash.. well, thats what I would do.. heheh.

Gamex Report 3

Thu, 2006-03-23 08:03

On WEDNESDAY 22nd March During GAMEX'06......45 tags where called in.......At present I'm not sure of the break-up but it was 45 (yes that's forty five!) tags in one day!

Andrew Ettinghaussen from Escape with ET has arrived and is filming aboard vessel "Reel Teaser".

Alistair McGlashan is also here covering the event for various fishing magazines.

Two days to go and there is fierce competition for leading boat in the tag and release billfish section with "Touch of Class" in the lead with 9 tags.

There have been many captures of various species as well......but I will get you those details later.
