Marlin cup

 Anyone know if any bills were raised/caught during the comp this year or what else was caught? Cheers Pauly

14 boats entered.  1 marlin raised, none hooked or tagged.

No other captures of any note.

I hear the Exmouth Heavy Tackle was quiet?

 I'm an EGFC member, but they seem to post all results and anything of note on FB, which is no good to those of us who don't/won't use it. We had one serious effort the weekend before, on my last day up there--trolled from about 8.30 to 3.30 off tantabiddy, mostly 250-900 metres, all the usual places. Water was 29 deg, colour brilliant, zero life. Only fish I heard of for the day was a YFT est 50kg. Not even Eddie could raise a marlin. This was only 3 days after the cyclone went past to the north, and the water was still very disturbed.

I believe only 9 billfish tagged for the Heavy Tackle.
