Congrats Alex, even better when Paul Worseling can confirm that it was a marlin and get you an extra 100 points in the comp!  Well done mate.

Finally got you first billfish, took a while but now the next ones will come a lot quicker.


Bet Paul Worstelling asked you for some of your secrets on how to catch fish because I reckon you are the better fisherman.

Hooked isn't the word

Alex has been a very keen fisherman for about the last 3 years with a state record 14kg wahoo on 10kg line at last years Gamex resulting in a couple of game rods and matching reels. Every arvo after Jeff knocks off he picks Alex and Axel up from school and its home, get change from school duds and off to the beach, chucking lures , sticking the net in for bait or paddling their kayaks or snorkelling, tough life but someones gotta do it.

Gave him a coupe of fish id charts when he was a real nipper and it didn't take him long to learn each specie and how many stars on  on eating qualities each had.

Is he shy   Could elbow Worstelling out of the way and present a few shows for Gamex and WA fishing.     Sounds like a couple of very keen fisho's

 Such a tiny marlin, but I'm sure the next one will be both soon and big. Matter of time surely. Just wait til he catches one bigger than your PBS Jeff, haha.

Sorry to burst a bubble but Pauls identification is wrong a black marlins dorsal does not shrink as it grows it is the same as an adult marlins dorsal when it is a juvinile. it is a small sailfish and can be verified by checking on the internet,

good catch regardless
