Cairns, Aus – 17th Grander of the Year

Askari Backing Down

Cairns, Australia – While fishing the Lizard Island Black Marlin Classic, Capt. Corey Hard on the Askari, released an 1,100 lbs Black Marlin. This is the 5th Grander Black Marlin on the Great Barrier Reef this year. We have a potential 18th Grander from Capt. Tim Richardson on the Tradition, but we are waiting on confirmation.

Congratulations to Capt. Corey on his great catch! For more on Askari, go to Hard Core GameFishing
