Highs and Lows as the wind blows.

Well our luck had to change. after the 3 weeks of our marlin season enjoying over 90% hook up rate the Monkey jumped on our back in the Lizard Island Tournament. Even though we managed to release a beautiful fish well over 1000lb our hook up and catch rate declined dramatically. For the seven days of the tournament we had 17 bites with one being another monster but only managed to tag 2, one fish charged the boat and got cut off before we could tag it, if it could go wrong it did, Top boat finished with 6 in a relative slow tournament this year. You know what they say. ” The sun dos’nt shine out of the same dogs arse all the time “
