Striped Marlin - tagged and released at St Helens

After several weeks of perseverance trying bait fishing unsuccessfully for striped marlin, the team on Saltshaker today hit the jackpot with the tag and release of an estimated 80 kg striped marlin. The fish was hooked in 58 metres of water 1 mile east of St Helens Point using a combination of teasers and skip baits and live baits. It was eventually hooked on a live jack mackerel. This capture has given the team confidence to persevere with baitfishing and hopefully more anglers will also have a try while these great fish are off our coast in what appear to be good numbers. A fantastic day off St Helens gamefishing and no doubt more to come.
