"The Bite's the best part"

The few boats that have already started their heavy tackle season are being rewarded with some good fishing. On their first day out “Viking II ” went 1 from 6 bites releasing a 950 pounder. Also getting off to a great start “Calypso” let a nice fish go that Capt. Tim Dean called over 800#. I also heard “Cool Runnings” caught a 750 pounder on a day trip out of Cairns. “Tradition” just started their season as well and reported raising 3 fish for 1 bite. As long as the current keeps pushing to the south the fish should stay on the edge,fingers crossed. I would also like to congratulate my good mate Chris’Sharky’Miles and the crew of the “Sea Baby IV” on winning the 2010 Townsville Billfish Challenge. Sharky, you’re a tournament ninja! Most of the fleet will be making their way north up to the famous Ribbon Reefs over the next few weeks so hopefully the big girls keep swimming in.
