Beau finished his first trip, with 8 marlin good on a trip that half of it is dedicated to catching Coral trout and Red emperor. Beau’s Daughter’s first time trip caught Two and friend Sussie caught her first two as well. Biggest fish of the trip was caught by Eduardo that I put at 800lbs. We ae looking forward to having them on board again next week.
Started new trip from Cooktown with the Tatham’s from Karratha WA who are on their 4th trip on the Viking and day 1 started a blinder. An hour after lines in, a nice fish took the stinger and Steve took the rod. Due to his wealth of experience, Steve has no hesitation in applying maximum drag and after a drenching going backwards, a 950lbs was released with a dancing salute back to the boat. Day 2 saw the weather take a turn for the worse and the fishing became testing. After a long and uneventful day, headed back to the reef to try again today.
