Aussie Recapture Fishing Report - March 14, 2016

We received two sailfish recaptures this weekend from 2015. Amazingly, the Walsh family, on holiday in Broome, Australia, recaptured two sailfish from the same captain in a weeks time in June 2015. This first one was caught and re-released by angler Bryan Walsh June 29, 2015 out of Bard's Beach off Broome. This sailfish was originally tagged 401 days prior off Broome by TBF award winner Jeda Ellens with angler Stuart Hocking. This sailfish was approximately the same size from time of tagged and recapture - estimated at 50 lbs. Congrats to everyone involved and thanks for reporting it Byran!
