Cooktown Marlin:

In the first of a two part epic adventure, Andrew Ettingshausen heads off on a 2,750 kilometre road trip to far north Queensland. From Cooktown he crosses to Lizard Island, where he’s based for two big weeks of reef, pelagic and big game fishing. All from a 6.7 metre boat! With crewmates Rob and Wayne, ET goes trolling for Trevally, Tuna and Mackerel. There’s more hard-hitting pelagic action when the crew cast poppers on the reef drop offs. And there’s plenty of colour coming up from the reefs, including a thumper of a Coral Trout and an even bigger Cod! Elsewhere in Queensland, there’s also big Barra action. But biggest of all is the first of two Black Marlin that make this trip a true epic.
