    Hervey Bay Game Tournament

    A fair few Ausfishers ventured up to Urangan two weekends ago to fish the comp and stay on the mother boat and access fuel from a barge. I fished on a 36' Topaz express and we were self sufficient for the comp. We had a shocker the first day tagging two black marlin in the morning missing a few. We went heavy tackle in the afternoon and didn't see a thing. Next day we couldn't raise a marlin to save ourselves light tackle so went heavy tackle on the shelf. We jumped a blue off then had a second one up that didn't eat, just shadowing the lures. Later we nearly had a double of striped marlin on and a third was chewing on the teaser as it was cleared. We scuccessfully tagged the one striped marlin for Troy, his first striper and first heavy tackle fish. "Run" were beside us and saw 9 big marlin for the day, hooking 7 and getting three. Quite a few heavy tackle marlin were caught this day. Last day we were not in contention so saved diesel and chugged home scoring two on the inside. Caught plenty of yellow sea carp in between times! Another great trip, great comp, great crew, great place and great boat!

    Great weather for the 4th year in a row!
    the blues were certainly thick in a few concentrated areas especially where we were that day smithy.
    great to see the comp growing every year with only 13 boats the first year I went up 2012 to around 35 boats this year.
    Bring on 2015!!!
