lady musgrave island

With the start of the 2015 Cairns black marlin season just around the corner, we started our trip north from the Gold Coast. As always each year we lift the big girl, give her a freshen up and scrub so she is all pretty for the season ahead. This year we also upgraded the engine vents which now make Castille look like a lean mean giant black marlin fighting machine! The boat left the GC with Matt Johnson (skipper of Gypsy Charters) for a boys fishing trip. Off the top Fraser they caught some great tuna… From there they stopped off at Lady Musgrave Island for a spot of fishing with a good time had by all. With the 2015 Mike Carney Toyota Billfish Challenge a week away, Castille Charters skipper Brad Craft flew in to take Castille the last leg to Townsville. Arriving ready to recreate the success from last year, our client Eddie unfortunately got held up. With only 2 days of fishing left, Eddie arrived and so far today Eddie has caught 2 marlin with the lead boat only on 3. Good Luck Eddie!
