In peak season, it is not uncommon for boats to raise 10 blues a day, averaging at least one or two captures per day. That is an impressive capture rate that is right up there with all the best spots I have fished. The fish size is also good, with the majority being between 250 and 500 pounds. Every so often, you find one that pushes the 700-pound mark, and the Australian 130-pound-class-record blue, weighing 811 pounds, came from Exmouth. This area has the potential to produce Australia’s first blue marlin over that magical 1,000-pound mark.
