Billfish Mayhem off Fraser Island – Hervey Bay!!


Tackle World Pro Staffer Dane Radosevic shot out a short time ago to seize the last opportunity of good weather for a few weeks and troll heavy tackle for a blue or two…

Dane and his crew were fishing 37kg stand up tackle to subdue the Billfish, consisting of a Shimano Tiagra 80W and Shimano Tiagra Ultra series rod. Blessed with glorious conditions to be trolling the shelf and the fish hot on the bite, Dane and his crew scored a cracking 7-6-4! Landing 3 blue marlin and 1 stripe marlin. With active fish, the bites were mental often coming in hot to destroy the teaser before nailing a well-presented lure. One of Dane’s rigging gear of choice is the Optia Ball Bearing snap swivels as they are strong and reliable, designed to keep you connected to that potential fish of a lifetime!
