This Giant Black Marlin was tagged and released by Askari's crew during the Lizard Island Tournament 2009.  It was caught by Shane Sipthorp on No.2 Ribbon Reef and was the second "Grander" of the Tournament.  Shane is now a member of the Lizard Island Game Fish Club 1000 pound Tag & Release Club.  The fight went into the night before the tag went in.

Ed Byrne is a regular visitor to the GBR and long time friend of the Hardcore Gamefishing Team.  Ed has caught his Grander so prefers to spend time bottom fishing for Red Emperor, Coral Trout and other reef fish.  Its a welcome change of gear, a lot of fun and provides some excellent meals.  We have pretty strict spec's on what we keep and most goes back.  Each keeper is cooled down in briny ice, then filletted and vacuum packed then snap frozen.  This keeps the fish in excellent condition for eating during the year.

This is Askari in full flight - at wide open throttle making 37 knots.  She is a beast.
