First ever Heavy Tackle Shootout held in 2021


On 23 October 2022, 14 boats and 33 anglers competed in 2 different prize categories
Gold Level being $9,000 & Silver Level being $900 cash to the winning boat who tagged the most marlin on the Outer Reef.
The club was blessed with superb calm seas, very uncommon for that time of the year. Our club Treasurer braved it and headed out as our Tournament Base keeping things in running order and as a contact on the seas. Thanks Michelle!
The day started slow with nothing reported on the 1st sked.
On the 2nd sked the marlins were waking up and starting to appear with 5 marlins tagged.
By the 3rd sked, the competition was on. There were 6 fish tagged with a few boats hooking up on Sea Monsters battling it out.
In total there were 11 marlins tagged for the day. It was great to see a big mix of anglers and boats. From Charter boats to trailer boats. There were mixed teams from different boats joining together and others fishing on completely different boats from their own. It was a fun day with the action around most of the boats who fished. If they didn't tag, they saw marlins being tagged.
The lead changed place many times
The winner of the Gold Level was VIKING II who tagged 3 marlins with the last one being 45 minutes from cease fishing. During this time they hooked a 4th one but lost it.
The winner of the Silver Level was Ofishal who tried to feed their marlin three times and got the tag in with 5 minutes of fishing time left.
Thank you to all captains, crew, anglers and charters who supported this event.
We look forward to an even bigger and better event in 2022.
