The 3rd annual Cairns Bluewater Billfish tournament was held at Fitzroy Island on the 22nd to the 25th August 2012. Twenty five boats competed in this year’s tournament, and what amazing fishing was to be had by all. The tournament has produced the best light tackle fishing for Juvenile black marlin off Cairns on record. As you can imagine, the bite was red hot. The final results for the tournament indicate that there were 342 billfish raised, 235 hooked up and 128 tagged for the three day competition.
