2013 Cabo Hatteras Billfish Shootout A Resounding Success

The Newcastle & Port Stephens Game Fish Club have staged their most successful Billfish Shootout to date with 110 boats and 530 anglers, experiencing some great weather and good fishing. With a cash and prize pool of over $100,000, the anglers, skippers and boat owners of NSW turned out in force.

Fishing conditions were favourable for the whole weekend with the Black Marlin on the bite early on day one. Black Marlin were in good numbers with a number of large fish caught including the heaviest fish of the tournament a Black at 176kg’s.

Game & Leisure Boats Managing Director Graham McCloy said, “It’s a tournament we’re very keen to put our support behind as we love the location and enjoy the respective tournament categories, which really suit the type of fishing our boats are built for. Plus it’s a great event to allow us to promote our Cabo and Hatteras brands, which are perfectly suited to the requirements of NSW anglers and their fishing conditions.”
