Giant Black Marlin

Fishing Report for October 2 2018

Greetings from Hotshot Charters.

Hotshot has just finished up with our mates from back home on the Gold Coast. We departed from Cooktown and fished our way to start our charter from Ribbon no.5. Conditions have been more then a bit “sporty” here but the boys managed to catch a few tuna’s and sharkey mackerels. We fished our way to no.7 and managed to catch and release a bronze whaler around 400lbs and then  raised a few small fish off of no.8.

The next few days had us raising several small to mid range fish that just didn’t eat properly but the boys had a great time non the less.

We ended up going back to no.8 after spending a night at Lizard Island where we managed to tag and release 4-5 fish.

Our last day out the boys landed several mac tuna’s and another tagged and released black.

Hotshot will be heading back out in a few days and the reports we are getting back from  the reef, it looks as though the season is just starting to heat up.
