Cairns, Australia – 15th Grander of the Year

We got a report just a few hours ago from Captain Tim Dean on board the Calypso.   Released a 1,000+ black marlin today on the reef…and with a TV crew on board we’re expecting some great footage.  Apparently a one-hour fight, the fish took a scaley mackeral.  More to come when we get it.

Congratulations to Capt. Dean and the Calypso!  Awesome stuff – second confirmed grander on the reef, and 15th of the year.
