After 3 weeks of a full overhaul with regular maintenance and the addition of some new updated equipment Mistress was back out in the big blue ocean off the Gold Coast today. After a crisp & cool morning with 15 knots of south westerly breezes Skipper Captain Brett Alty found bait and warm water in around 300 meters and pulled the hooks on a yellowfin at the boat, 15 minutes later hooking a nice 200 pound Striped Marlin! The Stripey was successfully tagged and released on a Larva Lure (NightSky). The wind died off during the afternoon to around 5 knots making a nice day on the water. The weather is looking good to get Mistress out again soon, possibly tomorrow or early on next week.
